Well that's it, I knew this could be dangerous, Semjan played well, but Simone was flat from the beginning. Whether that was emotional let down or physical let down, I don't know, but he just didn't have his shit together. A real blown opportunity here, because he was in a good section of the draw. I'm disappointed but more just hurt by his results, but it's not going to change.

He wasn't tired. I'm pretty sure I know what happened, I can't spell it out because of forum rules, but you can draw your own conclusions. Bear in mind Bolelli has a history of this kind of thing.

I'm just an idiot for betting on the Italian, but ive learnt my lesson.

It could be emotional let down from last week, I don't know. I'm just fed up with the bullshit. Still, he only needs a win or two to pretty much secure the AO, I don't see it happening anymore, though.

Simone, as far as I know, isn't a fixer.

Pfft, maybe youre right, but he shouldnt be tired to be honest, it's a poor excuse. Maybe it was just Semjan buoyed by the home support.

It is a very poor excuse, I'm not defending this result. He just simply looked out of energy, like he didn't have anything in the tank. Semjan essentially gave him the break back but he was serving poorly in that third set, just not good enough on the day, and yes, the home crowd helped Semjan very much with the victory.

Very bad result Bolelli, no excuses.

I remember how 2-3 years ago he was playing against Fed in Basel and the match was quite entertaining. Fed won comfortably like 6-4 6-3 or something, but Simone was a demanding opposition for sure.

These were the times when he was reaching Top30. And now ? Pathetic I should say - of course in terms of talent that he posesses.

He should focus on 2011 or gtfo for good in 2012 if 2011 is similar to 2010.

Montego, we can forget about him fulfilling his potential. At this point in the game, he needs to try not to become Berlocq. He's 25 and languishing in challengers, he's basically stuck now between ATP/Challenger level, and shows no indications of getting out. Because he cannot play on hard courts, and he cannot beat players above him. So right now, his ranking is about where it belongs, about 100. There are just too many mental and game weaknesses there to see better.

He just needs one or two wins in Finland to make the AO for sure. He should have gotten them here, and now he needs to get them next week. Just one or two, that's all I hope for.

He'd wish he was Berlocq right now.

Haha, was gonna say something similar. Berlocq is a class above Simone, no doubts. Berlocq is the best Challenger player on the clay courts,but he won't succeed at ATP level if he doesnt improve on hard courts.

That's right, I shouldn't knock Charly. He's a better player than Simone is now, for sure, and I think he's the second best challenger clay courter, behind Daniel, with Riba, Hajek and RRH right there. Charly schedules better too. Simone should be playing more on clay. He can't win on hard.

Oh well, this loss doesn't devastate me too much. He just needs to win a match or two in Finland. That will devastate me, if he loses R1 there.
