Indeed she has a real chance of the QF. Seppi was unfortunate when he came back yesterday. Didnt play too badly, but Andreev had enough.

Schiavone has done well to get to the fourth round, she has gone into 2/3 games as underdog as well I believe.

I give her a real chance to beat Razzano and make the Wimbledon Qtr Finals, what an achievement that would be.

Schiavone also beat Wozniak (Canadian), not Wozniacki (Danish) who is alot better.

Anyway, 4 players advance to round 3.

Great fight from Starace against Stepanek, to take him to 5 sets, and we all know Poto is normally useless on the grass. Seppi managed to win in 5, done well after having to come back to play being 2-1 up over night. Also, Bolelli pulled out, which was a shame, him v Tsonga would have been a good match and Fognini lost easily to Ferrer which was expected really.

Also good luck to the 3 ladies left. I think 2 of them have some chance to advance. Vinci is surely a gonna against Serena Williams. Hope she shows her best.

Tursunov would have been incredible

Re: Italians at Wimbledon 2008

Not only this, but also from the womens there was 5 out of 7 going through (1 exited to another Italian too)... so a good start for Italian players in general.

The next round is far tougher for most. Seppi will be disappointed if he flops to Gicquel though. He should fancy his chances of R3 after a huge win against Blake. Fognini and Starace had retired opponents, going any furhter than R2 would be minor miracle for 2 clear clay courters Bolelli against Tsonga, well if he gives 100% thats all you would ask. Should be disappointed not to be on a better court than court 3 (old court 2) though.

Re: Italians at Wimbledon 2008

Wimbledon is the least favourite surface of nearly all Italians so we did well to have 2 in the 3rd round

Will still be commenting on the juniors. Gianessi looks likely to go through R1... currently a set and break up.

Galvani gave a very good match, but in the end lost in 5. Good tournament for him still.

Yes Youzhny is not great on grass, but difficult still. Good stuff from Bolelli and Seppi to get to R3. Seppi against which Safin will turn up?
