He looked solid out there, very tidy on serve and with his UE count. It was the first time I saw Bolelli play and he was impressive, has flashy strokes off both sides, a stylish one-handed backhand and a pretty big serve for someone of his height; however, he clearly got down on himself after losing the close opening set.

didnt watch the match but I have the feeling that Bolelli is not yet in a situation where he can make impact in important tournament. hopefully next year he can do some damage coz the potential clearly is there

Good win, actually I was afraid of this match but getting the 1st set proved decisive for Tomas.

His fh is one of the best in the game imo, it´s really impressive the angles he can hit and the pace he can get on it with ease, his bh needs a lot of work to be done though, I think he´s slowly improving it but it´s still far from not being a weakness

Great win for Berdych.
I seriously think he can beat Roddick in the fourth round (if they both reach it)

I was surprised to see the quality of Bolleli's strokes, somebody said he had a very weak backhand, but it certainly wasnt "very weak". Can produce a hefty serve for a shorter guy, he had a chance to push Berdych here, but fell away as the match progrssed unfortunately. He could be a solid top 30 player with experience on the bigger stage.

34 winners and only 6 ue, a Top 9 job :yeah: hmmm... I fear the lefty Verdasco in R3 :scared: it will be a tricky match for Berdych.

When Simone gets his head together and matures as a player, he's going to go deep in draws. He's already one of the best at generating his own pace of the forehand side. This was a missed opportunity for a first big scalp though.
Tomas looked very solid and didn't let Bolleli take his chances. Serve worked very well also. Congrats Tomas and good luck against Verdasco! :yeah: I'm expecting a much tougher match :scared:
