Marquee match of the first round really wasn't an impressive match, mostly because Bolelli made somewhere I'm guessing in the 30-35 error range. Very dismal match from the Italian, who was bailed out by his serve virtually the entire match, which is the only real reason the scoreline looks competitive. His backhand in particular was atrocious and his movement was poor. But he's still very close to the top 100 so I'm still overall enthused, hopefully he'll do better in Miami qualies.

Cilic was mediocre in the first set, had an early break and broke himself with errors, but got more confident as the match went on, served better, and mostly just allowed Simone to self-destruct by not making errors. He played solid, which is all you can ask from him right now. I don't think this level will be enough to win the tournament, however.

Nid, bolelli sucks. Challenger win was a fluke. But considering cilic lack of matches it's a good win for him.

Yeah, and that's why guys like ROGER FEDERER among several others, and Italian coaches have called Bolelli the best Italian talent in the game currently, a top 20 talent when on, why he's beaten several top 10-20 players throughout his career. But hey fuckers, keep hating, Simone is almost top 100 again, I'll make sure to make a celebratory thread when it happens :cheerleader:

Cilic doesn't need match practice to take out Bolelli. Wonder when the last time he played a challenger was..

If he's such a talented guy then why isn't he in the top 100?

I expected he would, yeah. Cilic hasn't been impressing me whatsoever and I thought Simone had improved his form. I think Lu will take Cilic out in the QF. Cilic played decently in the second set but was made to look better than he was because of Simone's mistakes.

the idea of celebrating a possible entry in the top 100 of a guy considered top 30 is a bit of a nonsense :)
