Seppi
3-6 Cilic first set after Seppi had breakpoints earlier in the set
3-6 3-6 down 2 sets now, Seppi what the hell?
Seppi breaks and leads 3rd set *4-3
No surprise that Seppi lost his serve, 3-6 3-6 5-5 now...
Wasting breakpoints yet again, now serving to stay in match.. *5-6
3-6 3-6 5-7 pathetic, now its 2-2 and up to Fognini..

Where are all the italians in this forum?

Epic volleying from Cilic in TB
If they had to lose,too bad it wasn't 20-18 in 5th,maybe then they would learn the lesson.Every time they put Cilic/Dodig,and every time they lose,so maybe you should just put someone else then,and save Cilic and Dodig for the reverse singles,but I guess it's better they go into Sunday with some extra fatigue

Doubles starting, its Fognini-Bolelli vs Cilic/Dodig as was to be expected.

At *3-4 first set Fognini couldnt make a first serve and got broken.
3-6 for Croats

2nd set good play from Fognini now and Italy breaks to lead *2-0
Fog holds 3-6 *6-1, Italy has the momentum

Lorenzi just saved a breakpoint with a broken string, inspiring stuff
Big hold 1-6 7-6 3-1*
Epic service hold for Lorenzi from 15-40 down, 6-4
Lorenzi leads 2-1 in sets
Lorenzi holds from *0-40, playing really good

Re: World Group 1st Round: Croatia at Italy (February 1-3, 2013)

Lorenzi has had so many chances to win the 2nd set, 0-40 in one Cilic service game and setpoint at 5-4* 30-40 but now its going to be tiebreak 1-6 6-6

Finally Lorenzi wins the set 7-6 (8-6) had another sp at *6-5..

Lorenzi breaks Cilic from 40-0, good start for 3rd set! *1-0
