Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Filippo won the title 4-6 6-3 6-2 over Viola! He hit a beautiful backhand passing shot on match point and fell to his knees in celebration He was very happy to win this event. He didn't play great in the final but fought hard and had too much game for Viola in the end.

He won 100 points and is up to #72 in the rankings. Most importantly, he should now finish in the top 100 at the end of the year, if he has regular results the rest of the season. Several more Italian challengers left on the calendar, he has a real shot of getting his ranking near the top 50 with some good runs.

Super Happy for Pippo!!!! I hope this fills him with confidence for the rest of the year.

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.

Yes an important result for Pippo this one. He beat some good challenger level players along the way aswell. Should give him confidence going in to Umag.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Filippo won over the WC Pavic 6-4 6-0. Quick and easy as desired.

Plays Dolgopolov in R2 in the final match on Wednesday on the center court. Hopefully he can at least give a good account of himself, but this is a good opportunity for Pippo. Let's see if he takes advantage.

Re: The Filippo Volandri cheering thread

Pippo lost 1-6 2-6 to eventually title winner Dolgopolov in Umag R2.

He lost in doubles today with Poto 2-6 3-6 to Rosol/Wassen in Kitzbuhel. Tomorrow he plays Granollers in singles, who won Gstaad this past week, so fatigue could be a factor. His draw isn't too bad so hopefully he can take advantage and get some wins.

He defends over 100 points these next couple of weeks, so good results are critical, although he will remain in the top 100 without the points.

Filo lost 4-6 2-6.

He's out of the top 80 again. Now he plays several Italian challengers, Winston-Salem and the USO these next weeks. Next week is San Marino.
