Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Lugano:

R1: (7)Filippo Volandri (ITA) def. Pablo Andujar (ESP) 6-2 2-6 7-6(8)
R2: (7)Filippo Volandri (ITA) vs. Alessio di Mauro (ITA)

Tough win over a tough opponent, his second win over Pablo this year. Pablito

Pippo will have a rest today and tomorrow he plays his countryman Alessio di Mauro, who has had some good results in Futures this year. I don't think Filippo will have any problems dispatching him though.

R2: Filippo Volandri (ITA) def. (4)Teimuraz Gabashvili (RUS) 6-4 5-7 6-3
QF: Filippo Volandri (ITA) vs. (6)Daniel Gimeno-Traver (ESP)

Tough match to predict. I won't be surprised if Pippo loses this one, but best of luck anyhow.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Even with this result, Pippo's ranking should be around 100 again next week. A good performance in the next two weeks should solidify it for him. He almost definitely will make the MD for the US Open, so it's gonna be good to see him at a major again.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Sorry that was meant to say 110 not 100... anyway he plays Skugor at Umag which is starting in a minute. Been finalist here twice so fond memories. Can have a good performance here.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Indeed after the atrocious performance in Umag he seems back to good form by getting to the final here. Haase is a very difficult opponent, but a good week anyway.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Filippo lost 2-6 6-7(8), he had a set point on serve at 8-7. He was down 6-2 4-2 but came back and almost took the second set, but he had a good week regardless, and is back in the top 100!

Back in top 100. Excellent. Fighting back has definitely paid off. Now to the Trani challenger where he will expect another good week and the later rounds.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

He lost 7-6 6-4 in the final, but regardless it was a great week and he solidified his position in the top 100. Now he takes a much needed break this week coming up. Hopefully he can finish the season top 100, and get back to playing ATP events regularly.
