:woohoo: My italian stalions doing great lately. :crazy:

Andreas finaly won a tiebreak, which is a quite an achievement, so Oli decided to retire due to shock and embarrasement.

I was at the match. Must say I didn't notice Rochus was injured: he played very smartly always changing rythm of the rally, coming out sometimes with backspin attacks, many times with drop shots (missed too many), sometimes with good flat strokes. At the start I thought the choice of hitting many drop shots was tactic in order not to give rythm to Seppi, but probably it was just to shorten the rally. Anyway the Belgian served for set on 6-5 but Seppi played an awesome return game and a very solid tiebreak to close the set.
