Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

He lost to Bedene in the final, 7-5 6-3.

Shame he couldn't take the title on home soil.

Looks to be in promising form so far.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Hope Pippo can take this title. Should be able to win his match tomorrow. His form has definitely improved.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Pippo won his QF 6-3 ret. over Igor Sijsling. He now plays Haider-Maurer again for a spot in the final, the winner plays Minar or Schoorel.

A good opportunity for Pippo to take the title here but all of the potential opponents won't be easy, hope he beats AHM again. A win in this event would take him to #73 in the world, there or there about.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Pippo beat Haider-Maurer 6-4 6-0 and is in the final to play Thomas Schoorel, who beat Minar 6-4 6-7(4) 6-4. A great opportunity for Pippo to take this title. Hopefully he gets it done!

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Pippo lost the to Schoorel final 2-6 6-7(4). He was down 2-6 2-5 but he fought hard and got it to a tiebreak. Unfortunately, he was outhit today by the Dutchman and played a tentative match.

He did gain a healthy amount of points, and now is going to Belgrade for the Serbian Open. He plays a WC in R1 so it should be another win.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Real shame he's lost his last two finals, but like you said, the points are still useful.

Next time Pippo

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Pippo plays his opener in Belgrade against WC Lajovic.

Lajovic will have the crowd on his side, but he's a youngster ranked outside the top 250 so not a bad first round at all.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Filo won 6-1 6-4 in a relatively poor performance. Second set was a long grind, Filo struggled to hold serve and made a lot of errors. He looked tired. But he got the necessary win. Illya Marchenko is his R2 opponent after taking out Gulbis, so Pippo has a great opportunity at an ATP QF. Hopefully he takes advantage.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

In to the QF of Belgrade. Some good ranking points. It means he should probably take next week off and not play Madrid qualies otherwise he might be overdoing the tennis.
