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.
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.
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?
