What is that, Filo's fourth bagel of the tournament? He's on fire all right, but he still has to put Andreev away. Forza F-Vo!

Unbelievable! He is so in the zone this week. Why can't he just pretend he's playing in Italy in other tournaments?

I'm trying to watch this online but it's not connecting. :(

2-0 2nd set :( Come on Volandri, let's make this a historically dominant clay court tournament. Don't lose any more games.

4-1 in the 2nd set for Andreev. Looks like they'll split.

This is best of 3, right?

Best of 3 sets it is Leo.

Vamos Igor, win this title you tactical genius.

C'mon Igor! Overwhelm him with your court positioning :D

My radio for this match is slightly behind. I just heard Andreev win the 2nd set now.

This would be so disappointing for Volandri to lose a 2nd straight Palermo final, especially this year with him being in the zone and barely losing games all week long. However, Andreev also has a poor record in finals and he could use a title again.

Vamos Igor serve well and break down Pippo's forehand, you took out the Italian I liked, now do it again.

Is that how he turned the match around, by picking on Volandri's forehand?

Andreev definitely has the service advantage in this match and I'm afraid he may have gotten into a good rhythm by now, which is serious trouble for Filippo.

I can't see this match sadly, it's just Volandri's backhand is his best shot, so either he has made Pippo hit volleys or he is serving well.

Oh okay. And yes, if Volandri is being forced into the net then he's going to have problems.

My Italian radio suddenly became bad American music. :lol: :confused:

Fight, Filippo! This is your chance.

Leo

Did you say it was 2-1 Andreev? Livescore.com says 3-1 Volandri!

jole

3-1 Volandri per ATP :(

jole

4-1 Volandri. Question is, is it 1 or 2 breaks?

Action Jackson
10-02-2005, 05:58 PM
In the scoring thread it's 4-1 Andreev.

Not the 1st time the ATP would have got it wrong.

Action Jackson
10-02-2005, 06:04 PM
4-3 Andreev, he lost his serve.

Leo
10-02-2005, 06:05 PM
Apparently 4-1 Andreev was correct because now I have the radio back.

The crowd trying to will Volandri and he does break at love for 3-4 in the 3rd.

I think Igor just got a warning? Keep choking.

And yes, the ATP was insanely off with their scoring.

Oh, that serve lets him down again. What a blow for Filippo, he must be crushed. :(

Congrats Igor on title #2!

Just like I said Igor wins the matches he shouldn't like this one and against Ferrer in Valencia, yet loses to Serra in Bucharest.

Good to see title number 2 to Andreev.

Exactly, he's so bizarre. I guess he just prefers being the underdog. Let's see if he completely falls apart for the rest of the season as he did after Valencia.

Congratulations for Andreev, let's see if he will be more consistent next year in the big ones (and also, if he will have a little bit more of luck with the draws, most time he gets nightmare opponents soon in the beginning)
