Bolelli in the final of the rich Tunisi CH, hopefully he can beat Pavel tomorrow and take the title this time after the final lost in Morocco.

and then tomorrow he can fly to Rome to prepare for the first round match against a qualifier, if he wins he plays the winner of Monfils-Blake which is not impossible considering the form of these 2 players

It probably was.

I hate when they make the qualifiers play on the first day. Doesn't seem fair.

As soon as I saw that he had to go to a third set, I had a feeling that he'd be too tired to win the match. Especially after Saturday where there were so many rain delays and they didn't finish until really late.

:sad:

They should automatically give the qualifiers in masters series events Monday off...

I saw his match against Grosjean on Sunday and he was great (the first set was terrible, but the rest made up for it). I'll follow his results more closely in the future, I liked what I saw.
When he missed a BH, he missed it really badly, the ball was always landing in the bottom on the net, that was a bit shocking, lol. But this "little" problem with the BH aside ^^, he showed a good variety in his game, wasn't afraid to finish the points at the net and I was nicely surprised by his mental strength. Grosjean seemed totally in control of the match and when he broke at the beginning of the 3rd set, I asked my friend if he wanted to leave because it looked like an easy win from then on. I'm glad we stayed, the 3rd set was just great. Nice shots from both and except one poor game from Grosjean when Simone broke back, they both were playing very enjoyable tennis and put up a real fight. The most exciting match of the week-end, there was a great atmosphere, the crowd was totally into it - they got a little ovation at the end.

I'm not surprised he lost on Monday, he didn't look tired at all on Sunday, but it certainly was mentally very demanding.

Truc
05-15-2007, 10:03 AM
And since he lost to Serra: I know Serra doesn't look very impressive ^^, but I also saw Serra-Horna on Sunday and Serra was really playing well. He drove Horna completely nuts (although Horna was looking great on Saturday), so you never know with Serra, he might have played a great match yesterday too, he's totally unpredictable. The loss to Serra isn't necessarily as bad as it sounds.

Champion number 1
05-15-2007, 10:57 AM
Yes I think Serra is in a little bit of form and Bolelli was surely tired from the Seba match. All of this meant he lost yesterday. Simo will have better days and he did well just to qualify.

Looks like Simone played really well yesterday, I´ve noticed a lot of improvement in his game this year in every match I´ve seen him in action after the couple of matches I saw from him in 2006 and he has an excellent potential to become a very good player. If he plays like he knows, he will make life hard for Hewitt. Vai Simone

VolandriFan

Simone lost to Hewitt quite easily, but I noticed that he has made some improvements. He wasn't constructing points or playing with conviction, but his strokes actually looked good, he just needs to use his brain more.

VolandriFan
07-09-2007, 12:19 AM
Soderling's best surface isn't clay, but he's more than competant on the surface and will be confident from his play against Nadal. Simone still has a chance if he plays aggressively on the right shots, not every shot like usual :lol:

He can fight vs. top ten, but he absolutely needs of service returns for it. GO BOLE!
