Good win Mr. Onion :yeah: I think Tursunov had SP at *5:3 in the third.

Pathetic from Dima, but Cipolla got rewarded for his foghting spirit(can't believe i am saying this)...

Though he has zero chances against Haas...

So the Italian won the battle of the grouches? Was it played in a good spirit, or did Cipolla refuse to shake Tursunov's hand or did the Russian try to pull the umpire out of his chair? Or have they turned over a new leaf for the new year and started to conduct themselves like professionals?

Good to see the ballbasher hit the dust, at least.

Uhm. That was Wawrinka.

Flavio and Dima never met before :shrug:

Cipolla has already earnt 102 points in the rankings in 2009 (together with Coocoocachoo' other favourite Jérémy Chardy :D).

he's 24th in the "intermediate Race ranking"

I know, I saw the USO match. I was just referring to the fact that Tursunov is often moody on court, and Cipolla's debut on the big stage suggested likewise. So I was speculating as to how their peronalities interacted during the match.

I gather you've seen a lot more of Cipolla than me, so you'll know his better side, but all I saw at the end of that USO match was a bad loser who couldn't concede defeat graciously.

I was at the match today and I'm so glad Cipolla won. Tursunov is the biggest moaning git there is.

He didn't play a tennis match today, he played the World verus Tursunov. He got a warning for hitting a ball (the 2nd he'd put out) out of court. He got done a point for racket abuse. Later he threw a racket full on at the wall and got nothing. He tried to itimmidate all the lines people, moaned at the umpire constantly.

I was quite impressed with Cipolla, he played some great points and his back hand slice got into Tursunov's head.

Happy with the result. I wonder why he bothers at times. he seemed to think he had a God given right to win every point no matter what was happening.

hardly surprising. he's an awful character on court and doesn't has a brain for this sport.

That's just the kind of nonsense one expects from Tursunov.

Anyone who watched any other match of Flavio would concur that he is far from a moody player and not a bad sport either. It was Wawrinka being a complete jerk that really got the worst of him. Please don't see that match as an indication of Flavio's on-court personality. I've seen him lose before, and there was never an incident, never an argument (except with the umpire, but even that doesn't happen very often) and never any altercation at the net.

Cipolla was an absolute gent today. He had one call he thought was real bad. He had a bit of a scream, said something to himself and got on with it.

It was the weakest part of his game but he got a lot of first serves in until the wind got up. Then he started to struggle. a few DF's but once he was in the rallies his slice took over.

Was a fun match to watch. He played some great shots near the net. Seems to have great hands.

Ferrero, Robredo, Davydenko & :scratch:... Almagro.

Cipolla has a very strange slice and dice game, its so unique and unorthodox, perfect match up against players who get frustrated and go for the big shots to finish the long rally BUT MISS.

No wonder kettle heads like dima and wawa cant handle him

Starting to become a real fave of mine.

Yeah, I asked cause it is undoubtedly his biggest weakness. He has one of the weakest serves on tour :sad: Was hoping that he had improved, but seems that I am out of luck. And yeah, he's got a lot of touch, and good tactical insight too. And a great fighting mentality :yeah:

Glad to hear it. By all accounts it was the Russian who was storming about the court and generally being a bad loser.

:lol: I wonder why Dmitry bothers. It seems clear he doesn't much care about playing tennis, so why not just admit it and go on and do something else with his life. No one should have to be stuck doing something they dislike, I hope for his sake he finds happiness someday .

Could be expected but bad match-up my ass. If Tursunov plays a good match then Cipolla has little chance. Boring to death player to watch this Cipolla, hopefully Haas doesn´t clown around and sends him packing home :o

Haas is a dickhead just like Dima. If something doesn't work his way he's going beserk. Tough matchup for him.

As bad as Tursunov can be, I don't think you can say that his career is futile since he does peak sometimes. Four ATP titles in two years is nothing to be stiffed at.
