Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

In some week the new season will leave and Filippo will play a Doha and Sydney. I hope that in 2005 Filippo will improve your tennis to win at least another tournament.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

This year is the year he will want to make his improvement to be a top 30 player. Last year he got to top 50, 2004 he got to top 40 so now top 30

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

He lost 75 63 which is not a surprise! Lopez is better on the hard courts and Filippo should only look to improve his game on this surface rather than us getting our hopes up!

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Fillipo does see a nice volley he made quite a few impressive volleys during the match, but they did start to let him down in the 2nd set and end of the 1st set. Just a shame he has such ineffective serves, especially that pansy second serve which does nothing and only causes him problems.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Anyone who supports the idea of an Italian tennis forum like some of the other big nations. Go to the error & questions forum and go to Italian tennis and say you like the idea.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Volandri faces Hanescu in Aussie Open round 1.... good luck to Pippo in Melbourne. I think he has a good chance of at leats getting to round 2, but on hard court it will be tough.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Filippo lost in straight sets. Bad Aussie Open for the Italians. All five men went out in round 1, but then this is expected really. The season will start from here now for most Italian tennis players.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

He kept signing autographs...even after he lost
kat and I just looked at him and wanted to hug him... typical eh? He looked a bit dejected... and someone remarked "Why are they getting his autograph? He's sh!t!" I said 'it takes one to know one"... felt it was appropriate! Fingers crossed for doubles - if he plays doubles?

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

He does usually play doubles, but not sure about the Aussie...

Volandri is quite crap on hard court, even though I thought he could beat Hanescu after only just losing to Lopez and Arthurs despite playing well...

Well as I said though, the clay season starts in Feb in South America and this is where the season stats for him. hopefully he has a good French in May and then people wont be calling him s**t

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

I can confirm that Filippo will be playing with Galimberti against Knowle and Pala in the first round of the doubles.

Unfortunately another first round exit coming for Pippo
