Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Lost to another good young player, Klizan, in R2. Disappointing lost though really. I thought he had a good shot at this weeks tournament.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Pippo lost in R1 of San Benedetto losing to Ungur 0-6 6-1 4-6. He only won 4 points in the first set, but fought hard. Unfortunately, Ungur eventually overpowered Pippo gaining a break at the end of the match.

So, Filo's results of late haven't been too good. This week he is in Bastad and defeated Robredo in R1 7-5 5-5 ret. A fortunate draw and result, playing Robredo who was coming back from, and is still dealing with, leg problems.

He plays the winner of Kukushkin and Haider-Maurer in Thursday so this is a great opportunity for an ATP QF. He needs to take advantage.

Lets all keep our fingers crossed!

So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Filippo lost 3-6 6-7(7) to Haider-Maurer. He led 5-2 in the second set, and served for the set at 5-3, being broken to love. Had a 4-1 tiebreak lead as well.

Unfortunately his recent form hasn't been very good. He doesn't defend too much the rest of the year, but every win helps. Hopefully he can bounce back.

He'll likely receive a WC and play a challenger in Orbetello next week.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

He did receive a WC in Orbetello and plays Di Mauro in R1. That should be a victory. Hopefully he goes deep this event.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Average match overall. Plays Goffin in R2. He'll need to play better.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Filippo won his R2 match 6-3 7-5 over Goffin. He played well and served bigger than usual. He seems motivated to do well in this event.

His next opponent is Benoit Paire on Friday in the QF. Another difficult match, hopefully he continues playing well.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Paire is very difficult, playing well at the moment, but Filo can realistically win this event and give him some good ranking points.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Filippo won 6-4 6-4. Played a good match, his best of the week so far. He won 12 straight points from 4-*3 to win the match.

Plays Romain Jouan in the SF. A great opportunity to win this event now, and he would move to #72 in the rankings if he does.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

The MD for Umag next week is also out, and he plays a WC in R1, so he has a great opportunity to build on this week in Croatia. But first things first, he needs to win this event.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Yeah great chance to win this now. In R2 next week he would play Dolgopolov which would be a good match, but as you say for now he just needs to win this.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Filo won 6-1 6-4 today! He played his best match of the week today, good throughout. Jouan played well in the middle of the second set but Pippo withstood the run and won the match by breaking Jouan. He hit a backhand passing shot and then a winning forehand to close out the match.

Pippo plays Matteo Viola for the championship, it's a must win match for him.

Wishing Pippo the best of luck. Double fingers crossed!
