Hey all!I am supporting Filippo since 2003 but since the last week in Sopot he ranked up to my favourite players! I don´t know what happened. I have my favourite players and the players I like a lot but I don´t following them soo much. But now everything changed. I can´t explain why...
That's the so called "Sopot phenomenon" it happens to me after most tournaments I'm at, that I found new players I like [or dislike], but Sopot is even more intense, really no idea why..it creates my long time favs...this year I surely can add Pippo to the group of players whose results I follow regulary.He's a classy player, smooth and elegant on court.Not an attention seeker, not a 'celebrity attitude' @ all, which is rare in pro tennis lately.. Keep my fingers crossed for him.
Best of luck&avanti!
After 2 good weeks, Volandri is back to sucking as usual for the year 2006. He lost 2-6 6-3 4-6 to Vassallo Arguello. What is so bad about it is that Volandri was 4-0 up in the third and then proceeded in losing 6 games in a row. Well certinaly a match to forget and hopefully he can concentrate on his next tournament. Its such a shame as I expected Volandri to win this tournament. At least not to exit in round 1.
Filippo defeated Moya and advances to the semifinal of RomaniaOpen! Tomorrow he plays vs Serra. It won't be easy, but if he makes it then in the final he'll meet PHM or Melzer.Both of them are within Filippo's reach..so:Avanti!
YES!HE WON!Defeated Serra 7-6 6-4!
Tomorrow a big day, the final of Romania Open. Melzer may have a small advantage,he saved some strength today-as his SF opponent PHM retired after the first set (while Volandi played a tight match..).Still a great chance for Filippo to win, so:
Go for it!
