The Indian fellow Dev Varman has barely any experience on clay, a record of 2-1, this was his fourth official match on this surface, and he gets an easy win in the final round of the qualifying in Bucharest against the italian lover Volandri...

Pippo can not go any lower then this :bowdown:

Congratulations, Somdev. You're doing us proud! :yeah:

I have never seen him play, but from the quality of the players he's been beating, I guess he should close in on the top 100 someday soon.

Filippo withdrew last week with pharyngitis, I hope he's feeling ok now.

Somdev isn't afraid of the clay.

Somdev isn't afraid of the clay.

That is nice to see, and I wish some other american based hard court up and coming challenger players would give it a try, as for Pippo, as a claycourt specialist, there is no way he can get trashed by this indian fellow, even if he played with one leg and with one arm......

Well big Sam Querrey has had a go playing nearly the whole season last year and did well in Monte Carlo.

Somdev has that great commodity confidence, if it was sold it would be worth more than gold and truffles combined per kg. At the same time many of the players haven't figured him out yet, so that helps him.

I think India and Romania are playing in DC, so this would be a reason that he is playing in Bucharest.

Great win. This shows that NCAA Tennis is pretty good. Devvarman won the NCAA title 2 years in a row as a member of the Virginia Cavaliers. First Isner now Devvarman.

bad luck for him to play Almagro now while LL Volandri has a more winnable 1st round match

I'm still mad they didn't even give Somdev a wild card to the U.S. Open qualifying. :mad:

I know, where do they expect us to get our champions in the future? We need to start buttering up these kids now so they'll play for us later.
