Rainer really was the better player throughout the match. His grass pedigree and game was just too good for Bellucci. Bellucci couldn't finish points off and Rainer's flat shots and accuracy darting the ball from side to side exposed his poor grass movement.

Good expected win for the veteran.

Way to go Rainer!

35 year old loves grass and stays in touch with the top 100. F. Lopez next.

Beat me to it. I was expected Schuettler to win but am still so happy that he did. Bellucci's drop shots were too much.

Probably one of the few matches where i wouldn`t have bet on the seeded player to win it.Bellucci should stick to clay events,he isn`t good on grass.

Rainer is 35, bitches. 35 and still doing work.

Feli v Rainer R2. I'm excited for that match, will be exciting contrast of styles and two guys who can truly play on grass.

Bellucci couldn't finish points off and didn't know how to put points together. He was just hitting the ball, hitting drop shots at inappropriate times. He doesn't construct points well enough to beat someone like Rainer on this surface.

it's good to see Rainer staying strong, I wasn't sure if he could pull this off but Bellucci had no plan at all

Freak me Schuettler I'm sick of this guy just showing up in the grass court season and nothing else. Hack.

Expected apparently. I really like Schuettler when he became old :lol: When he was in top 5 I didn't like him ;) Now I wish there was more players with his style (am I getting old or what...?)

Great win, Rainer. Keep on rolling. Lopez is definitely a winnable match.

schuettler is too solid off the ground for a brainless ballbasher like bellucci

Schüttler was so bad on clay.
And he is so dangerous on grass.

That just shows how huge the difference from those surfaces still is although people say that queens grass was nearly slower than roland garros' clay.
It's not just about the speed of a surface, it's about other things.
And Schüttler is still someone to look for at grass.

This Schuettler was too good for this Bellucci. :worship:

Yeah, expected. Bellucci isn't too good on grass, he should lose to very good grass courter like this old man.
