Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol
Simone lost in the SF at the Genova challenger to Starace 4-6 4-6. After this loss, he won back to back matches twice in nine events, making the QF of Napoli, losing to Fognini, and the SF of Ortisei, losing a close match to Lacko. The year Simone had this season is very similar to his 2009 season, a couple of good runs, but filled with 1st and 2nd round losses all over the schedule. The good thing for Simone is he has very little to defend up to April, so one can only hope he can find a way to regain the form that brought him inside the top 40 just early last season.
He will be nearly 25 1/2 when the 2011 season starts, so he is no longer young, and that is not an excuse for his lack of performance anymore. His struggles on surfaces that aren't slow clay will need to be rectified. It's time for Simone to make a step up in game and in focus and determination, or he will continue to be a regular challenger player for the rest of his career.
