Down a break in the decider twice, down 2-5 and 4-6 in the TB, Filo V makes it to QF.

Gimeno Traver doublefaulted on match point.

You can't play tennis on a court like this. There hasn't been a normal bounce in the whole match.
Gimeno Traver is probably one of the worst tiebreak players of all time.

Was that the case in the TB when Volandri barely hit the second serve return and consequently netted it?

Volandri reached the final here last year, right?

grande Filo. from what i'm reading the match was horrible level-wise from both sides, but huge props for not giving up at any time. Extremely important for his ranking to not lose this early on, likely Bellucci next and could be too much for him at this point.

Volandri's first MP-down win since 2004!
