Pippo retired after the first set in Rabat R2 against Machado, 1-6. Stomach problems?

I'm not sure.

Pippo won the Rome challenger last week and made it to the Rome 2 challenger QF this week. He's ranked 149 now, after starting out of the top 200. He doesn't have much to defend at all until mid-August, so a top 100 position in time for the US Open main draw is actually looking like a decent prospect. Let's hope he can continue with positive results.

Filo had an amazing tournament at ATP Rome last week, making the 3rd round as a WC defeating Luczak and Benneteau in straight sets and coming within points of beating Gulbis before losing 6-7 (4) in the third set tiebreak. His ranking surged up to 120 with the result and he is now 1 or 2 good events away in the next months to get in the top 100 with very little points to defend. Looks like his career is back on the tracks after falling off.

His next scheduled tournament is qualifying at Madrid starting Saturday, and then RG qualifying. Good luck in these next weeks Pippo!

Here is Pippo's draw for the qualifying event at Madrid:

(3) GIRALDO, Santiago COL v SIDORENKO, Alexandre FRA
KIEFER, Nicolas GER v (12) VOLANDRI, Filippo ITA

Not a great draw really, Kiefer is just coming back from injury but is always dangerous, and Giraldo just came off of an amazing week in Rome. Filo will have to be at his best to qualify for the main draw.

Good luck Filippo!

Filippo defeated Kiefer 6-4 6-2 and will play Giraldo in the final qualifying round tomorrow. Tough match, hopefully he is at his best and gets the victory.

Filippo was destroyed 1-6 2-6 by Giraldo in the final round of qualifying. Sad, but expected result. He did win 16 ranking points by winning his first qualifying match, so at least it wasn't an empty week and he is closer to breaking the top 100.

Next tournament: French Open qualifying.

Filippo finally broke for *5-4 after holding four break points. That's the story of the match, with a 4/17 bp conversion. Lucky for him if he can squeeze this one out on serve.

F: (3)Filippo Volandri (ITA) vs. Reda El Amrani (MAR)

With a win today he'll be very close to the top 100.

Filippo won 6-3 6-2!!!!

The win should put him around +/- 100 in the rankings. So proud of him, it's been a long road back but he's almost all the way there again. He sure loves playing in Italy. Congrats to Pippo on the great week!

Filippo's put in all the hard work, so he really deserves this result and a top 100 ranking. If he stays healthy, I hope he can have a great clay season on the main tour next year and onwards (however long that may be).

So recapping this week:
R1: (3)Filippo Volandri (ITA) def. Caio Zampieri (BRA) 6-4 1-6 6-3
R2: (3)Filippo Volandri (ITA) def. (WC)Santiago Gonzalez (MEX) 7-6 6-1
QF: (3)Filippo Volandri (ITA) def. (5)Simone Bolelli (ITA) 6-1 7-6
SF: (3)Filippo Volandri (ITA) def. Antonio Veic (CRO) 6-2 0-6 6-4
F: (3)Filippo Volandri (ITA) def. Reda El Amrani (MAR) 6-3 6-2

It's a shame we don't hear anything about his schedule until entry lists are out though.

According to what the rankings people on here say, Pippo will be 103 in the ranking tomorrow. One more good result should see him in the top 100, and most importantly he has a good chance if he stays healthy and keeps playing well at making the MD for the US Open now and Aussie Open next season. So proud of him, he truly does deserve it so much.

He's playing in Lugano this upcoming week, then Milano and Reggio Emilia. He's playing Andujar in R1 and will likely play Wawrinka if he makes it to the QF, so good luck to him in Switzerland this upcoming week!
