04-11-2007, 05:10 PM
Potito can be really good if he has left behind all his physical problems

04-11-2007, 05:24 PM

Nice win Poto :yeah:

Verdasco has had problems since i saw him in DC.

Starace poses a threat to most under-peforming players, and it's good to see him notching a win. It's been a while. As for Verdasco, I didn't see the match, but it's possible (going by the scoreline) that he went out less tamely than he did against Simon last year.

Starace could do some damage if he held it toghether mentally on clay, he gave Federer a shock in rome last year. Im expecting him to do better this clay season than any other.

Verdasco injured his abs in 3rd set and is in doubt for MC

04-11-2007, 06:08 PM
Fernando :sad:

04-11-2007, 06:10 PM
he gave Federer a shock in rome last year.

6-3, 7-6(2) — yeah, he was practically shaking in his boots. :spit:

04-11-2007, 06:19 PM
Verdasco... :lol:

04-11-2007, 06:24 PM
6-3, 7-6(2) — yeah, he was practically shaking in his boots. :spit:

Well Starace did serve for the second set, so he certainly had his chances.

04-11-2007, 07:10 PM
Yeah, I guess that's to be taken into account.

Starace keeps surprising some people including myself :p
The latest I've seen of him was in Acapulco? Where He played a great match against Ferrero and showed He can play great when he wants to!

Congrats to him! :hatoff:
