:eek:

Seppi had MP serving at 5-3 in 2nd set and lost 4 games in a row after that, while Starace was leading 4-2 in the 3d

Starace def Seppi 1-6 7-5 7-6 in the Italian deby

Well done Starace for fighting hard in this match, but Seppi this was a blown opportunity had a match point in the 2nd set, but couldn't convert.

Lots of breaks in this match and Starace will play Calleri in the semis.

Typical scoreline for Italy's derby
Seppi can't handle country mates two days in a row

Well done to Starace, although this was a blown opportunity from Seppi's point of view. It was very disappointing that he couldn't close out the match in the 2nd set and he was duly punished.

that makes it 2 matches in a row where Starace saves MP and wins it, what's the record of this?

Both of them were nervous and it really told in the TB when they both missed overhead smashes and neither of them were prepared to hit close to the lines and take risks. It could have gone either way but the Potato took it and probably had the slight mental edge after Andy didn't convert that MP in the 2nd set.

Seppi had enough chances to win this, but the big Starace was defending well after his medical timeout was moving quite well.

Seppi went through a phase where he could either hit the ball out or at the bottom of the net, good week for him anyway regardless of this result.
