Who cares about the US Open, when you have the Genova Open in Italy going on this week! The US Open has been lame, predictable, with rather poor matches. The Genova Open has been much more exciting, and much more Italian, and nothing is better than Italian tennis and Italian challengers on clay. All four semifinalists are Italian, so the fans will definitely be having fun rooting their men on. Who do you guys think will take the title?

SF Matches

Bolelli v Starace

Seppi v Fognini

I think Starace will win this. Bolelli comes from my region and I've seen him many many times and every time I see him it seems to me even more lazy and dumb.. guy has talent but it seems that he doesn't wants to show it for more than three minutes lol. So I think he'll lose to Starace, who is a solid clay player and has the necessary strength even to beat Seppi or Fognini. here I think Fognini will win, plus he is used to these courts 'cos he cames from Genova region, I saw him too many times and he has much potential, but lacks of continuity and he's not ready for a breakout.. but he shows great matches and I think he'll beat a Seppi who I ever hated much more than many other Italian players even if he comes from my northern italy

anyway Starace will win this and I hope that these victories and these tournaments will help some good Italian player to raise 'cos we never sucked like this in all the open-era.. and we're gonna take a 5-0 from Sweden in davis cup, lol

This is the best tournament after Umag.

Seppi and Starace can play in the final, OMFG! :spit:
I think Potito will clinh this.

What's the fastest way to get to Genova, please? :D
Just some 600km away from me, damn.

Oh well, Ljubljana challenger is coming up soon...and that's only 15 minutes away from me. :devil:

Yes, played well in the last two sets to do it also. He's the best player in the draw, in terms of level.

Outside of Andreev, also Gabashvili, Massu, Volandri and Zverev played this event, so it was a good draw. Would have been even deeper had Cuevas and Gil played but they were in the US still with the doubles.

As predicted Starace won, now I think Fognini-Seppi h2h will go to 5-1 :)

yeah I think you're right.. our best-ranked player was 31-yo Sanguinetti :lol: at least now we have more hopes..

however as predicted Fognini won 6-2 4-6 6-4 and now Starace will achieve this, still too solid on clay for Fognini I think

Fabio Fognini is the winner of the 2010 Genova Open!

6-4 6-1 victory over Starace in the final. Congrats to Fabio, when he's focused, he's a damn good clay courter.

Potito, WTF?

What a mistery this Fognini...one day he'll play like he just came from a night party and the next day he'll play like a superstar.

Seppi

Maybe next year. :lol:
