Re: Kitzbuhel QF : Klizan def. Bolelli 1-6 7-5 6-1
bolelli won a title on a fast hardcourt last week, probably celebrated pretty well, then flew to play on clay at altitude.
not surprising he faded but there wasn't much he could do in the third set. klizan was pretty much unplayable.
huge week for him. I can't believe people are still talking about this Olympic bullshit as if it's more important to a pro than a potentially career-changing points hall.
klizan is on the cusp of being able to leave the challenger tour behind. big chance to win his first title and a nice pay check to boot. like he's going to ignore all that to fly to london for an early exit. the olympic hype merchants are out of their fucking minds. seems some of them are having trouble accepting that it just doesn't mean that much to some of the athletes that are there.
