he's not even the highest ranked of French players from 1991 generation :shrug:

Julien Obry (beautiful one-handed backhand) and Pierre-Hugues Herbert are better ranked.

Anyway, his main goal currently is beating Karlovic's record for the quickest serve, as he was measured 254 km/h (quicker than Karlovic's record 251) on the challenger tour but it was not validated ... as sometimes these measures are not reliable.

Big servers have always attracted my eye. The power that bursts forth from the giant flick of their racquets represent the gargantuan power of fury. Infused with RAGE, a big server cannot be defeated - not by the sickening pushers at the top of the game, not by anyone.

This man, and more so Raonic need to drop their calmness and destroy their opponents with ruthless and brutal fire.

Is it too much too ask a big server have a ground game that isn't completely awful to watch? I haven't seen this guy yet, but if he's worse than Karlovic in that area...

Roddick maybe? :shrug: But seriously Isner and Anderson have good ground games, it's just their movements are so poor due to their heights it makes their groundstrokes look a lot worse. Raonic on the other hand has a good chance to somewhat develop a great ground game.

Well if you think about it logically, the weaknesses stem from strenghts. Due to big serves, their ground game doesn't need to be that good because in match situations they're not encountering these situations often. That's why improving on a weakness is a huge asset for a player. Look at Djokovic for example: his serve really declined 2009-2010. He was forced to play a lot more rallies and break serve more often. Now that his serve has improved, his return game hasn't gone anywhere.

Del Potro is another example. In 2009 he really found his serve and started doing some damage. Having played with a poorer serve before, his ground game was in good shape.

frenchman always do well in France. Remember Rodrigues, and Renevand last year in Metz last year? Came through qualies and won a round in the main draw, same thing Olivetti has done in Marseille, and we haven't heard anything from them since, if the entire ATP tour was played in France then maybe he's be the future GOAT

Apparently his match with Fish tomorrow is only one on main court which won't be streamed (according to some annoying Aussie commentator who calls 0-30 a mini-break - ****).

Annoying.

Watched him in round 1 and his first serve was pretty much unreturnable, as you'd expect. His groundies are quite unimpressive and his movement is a bit wooden and heavy, volleys are decent. Also showed some balls in final set tb,

According to his site, he lost to Llodra 6-7, 5-7 competitive match not easy to get breaks on that guy if he gets his first serve in. I enjoy players like Karlovic so hopefully this guy will improve and be seen on tour, the kind of player nobody likes to play cause of his serve.

It is alredy more than 2 and half month since Marseille and this guy is loosing to random mugs everywhere. Really i am dissapointed, i was expecting much more from Olivetti, i am sure i wasn´t only one with that serve and beating Fish it was big news back than in Marseille. Now Olivetti in 2and half months since MArseille - his results:

Guadeloupe challenger - lost to Sajous 7-6(6), 6-7(5), 6-7(4)
Tallahasse challenger - lost to Mirzadeh 6-3, 5-7, 2-6 - ranked 1610....
Leon, MX - challenger - W Ramirez W 7-6(1), 3-6, 7-6(5)
lost to Ram 6-7(4), 2-6
Sweden Future - clay - Eriksson W 6-4, 6-4
Odenbrink W 6-3, 6-4
Rosenholm L 6-7(6), 1-6

Bordeux challenger qualification- clay - W Bubka 6-3, 4-6, 6-4
W Kudla 6-4, 5-7, 6-4
L Elias 4-6, 1-6

I mean those results are pathetic really, actually his last 2 tournaments on clay at least he won 2 matches before he lost... more impressive than his HC resulst post-Marseille...

how come every fan of any random player always like to insist that the reason they havent make it thru to the big stage is that they haven't found the motivation or that they still have some mental issues to sort? sometimes you just have to accept that the player you like is a mug and get over it
