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.
