Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Hey all My first post on this forum and seeing as Im half Italian, may it go to my fave player Filippo. His form recently has dipped a bit and now he is near number 60 in the world but pnce more impressed in Rome.

Hopefully he will regain his sweet shots of last year for the French Open and make an impression. Its a shame he has the worst serve out of the top 100 players because with a good serve he good be successful. I am hoping he and Andreas Seppi can become top 30 players.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

In to the quarters of the tournament of St Poelten, Austria. He plays either Hanescu or Zimonjic so he has agood chance to get to the semis although it will be tough.

So far:

1st round: Volandri def. Berdych 6-3 6-1
2nd round: Volandri def. Sluiter 6-4 6-2

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Volandri won the final in style 61 64, h a nervy spell in it but he is finally showing his promise. His first ATP title and now to the Frnch Open, where I hope he can get past a few rounds.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

I saw Volandri in round 1 of Wimbledon and he is a rally great player. He did well just to go through 1 round here and should be proud of reaching the 2nd round and pushing Goran very far!!!

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

hi, i'm a big ferrero supporter, but i was watching volandri and ivanisevic's match and i thought volandri was playing extremely good tennis, i think if he had taken on ferrero sometime in the tournament he would have beaten him, but i still prefer ferrero. And to that lucky person who had the oppurtunity to see JCF train, i can't believe u didn't watch ferrero, u have no idea what i would give to see ferrero.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

I saw Ferrero on court 1 when he lost to Ginepri, h looked out of form it has o be said

Volandri against Goran was good but he tightens up too much when he has a chance of winning which is my main critcism to him, hes done it so much this year... on the verge of winning then being scared.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Another win in round 2 over another qualifier Florent Serra... 75 60. Now he faces Vliegen and should get to the semis where his main test will start. Forza Volandri!

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Easily beat Vliegen 62 62 but now its Moya so its arriverchi after the semis I guess. Unfortunate too as he will lose more ATP points after being a runner-up last year!

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Forza Filippo I think he can pull off a stunt against Moyá, though it will be extremely tough.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Volandri won in style with a 63 62 win. Great match for Pippo and his best win of his career undoubtedly.

Hopefully he can win this now and move on from it to better things.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Bad ending for him at this tournament losing 75 63 to Canas, but now he must concentrate on the event in San Marino where he can get good entry points.
