Two very talented underrated claycourters from Italy, two massive underachievers. Who was better at his prime? I'm going with Filo who schooled peak Fed in rome...

Poto Choked against mugro and monaco being set up on both finals.

If Im not wrong Filo beat Rafa on a challenger right before the mental giant turned pro.

Poto also choked badly against Murray at RG2009...That was embarrassing

Volandri had the better wins but the more absurd losses. Beat Federer famously in 2007 Rome, and beat young Nadal in early 2003, in two Challengers. Once indoors in a QF, and the second on clay, with Volandri winning in 3. The 2006 match in Davis Cup September World Group Playoffs was 4 sets of greatness.

Starace played a very good level against peak Nadal in 2008 Hamburg, 4-6, 6-7, and then also in 2008 Olympics, where he took a set from Nadal before the Spaniard won in 3. Starace went 3 tough sets with peak Federer in Gstaad 2004.
