Default Belgrade SF: Seppi def. Nalbandian 2-6 6-2 7-5

Very up and down match as the scoreline suggests. David started out the match playing fabulously, hitting the ball cleanly, dictating play, moving Andreas all-around the court. Andreas played poorly and returned and served badly, Nalby was doing a ton of damage on the second return.

Second set was a complete role reversal, and it was Andreas who was dictating play with Nalbandian on the backfoot and making poor errors. Andreas served a lot better the final two sets and gave Nalby less chances to attack, made fewer errors, started moving the ball around more and going down the lines more.

Third set, Nalbandian got a bit lucky to break to start the set with a letcord at 30 all in his opening return game, and ended up taking a 3-0 and 4-1 lead in the set. But his serving and forehand deserted him and he got noticeably very tired as the 3rd set went on, moved terribly and did nothing on return after breaking early. Andreas started taking control after breaking for 4-3 and Nalby hit a couple big serves to bail himself out, but it wasn't enough.

Great win for Andreas! Hopefully he can win a non-controversial title tomorrow!

Default Belgrade SF : Seppi def. Nalbandian 2-6 6-2 7-5

Good comeback from Seppi in the 3rd after being a down break. He started poorly, then lifted his game while Nalbandian went walkabout in the 2nd.

The last set was more competitive and surprisingly Seppi served out a match after breaking for *6-5. Big chance for a second title for South Tyrol's finest.

Dedicated to the lovely Mateya.

Seppi after the match: "I wanted to win for Mateya! See you in Umag!"

Highly questionable attitude from Bandy, didn't look like he wanted to win despite being 4-1 up in the third.

Nalbandian needs better fitness. He got tired and he couldn't do anything. He was moving in quicksand the end of the third set. Seppi just took advantage of his lapses and stepped in. David would have won had he kept his shit together.

Too late now, with all his past injuries. Common these days to see Nalbandian choke

Amazing stuff, a genuine rollercoaster ride!
During the first set Nalby was playing great tennis and I thought it would end up a 6-2 6-3 score or something the like. However, like so often, Nalbandian's level plummeted during the second set. Consistency is so NOT Nalby's second name,
Order looked restored when Nalby was up a break in the 3rd, 4-1 seemed a comfortable enough score... but then nothing appeared to be how it seemed in this match.
I don't know what happened thereafter as I watched Delpo-Wawa instead, but I guess Nalby had a epic breakdown again - and/or with Seppi smelling his chances and taking advantage.

Great win for Andreas, hope he takes the title tomorrow.

Mateya
Have a on me.
