The best opening round for Italian players since 1911.

Highlights for me were Seppi's win over Blake, Schiavone's win over Wozniacki and Starace destroying Tursonov before he retired.

Forza

Acasuso

Tursunov would have been incredible

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.

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.

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.

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.
