He got beat by Roddick on clay in straight sets. Not a positive outcome.

One tournament does not make a good year so far. Of course, he has been injured, but he has had some bad losses since then, too.

He has no chance to reach top 10 or 20 for that matter.

Yeah but this was his first match against a such important player.

Next time i guess he'll win.

He has great shots... Top 10 1HBH on the ATP, and potential to get higher in the rankings too. But, I'd say he'll peak in 1-2 years. Look at Wawrinka: He's been playing for a while, and it's not till now that his game is solidifying and he's beginning to beat up on higher ranked players. So, I think it will take some time, and there will be no immediate shocking surprises, like Kuerten's first RG.

He had chances in the 1st set, didnt see the 2nd. A few rallies I saw he was dictating and then blew a very makeable forehand. I think it happened a few times in the tiebreaker.

If Robredo can make it to the top 10, I dont see why he cant.

His biggest problem is he loses in round 1 or 2 in every hard court tournament. Can't make up any points to get to #10 that way.

Isnt this his first full year at the tour level??? His groundies dont look like clay court specialist groundies.

i think its more of a stragedy thing if nothing else, he got his high backhands working vs. roddick but he started mixing up his tactics too much and overall just didn't step up when he needed too

Hantuchova's been watching his matches. Sounds like a nice future to me.

[QUOTE]

What you mean? Is his girlfriend?

Also keep in mynd that he made trough the final the past week where he lost to Gonzalez!

He was a bit tired, he is not ued to get trough the weekend against such great player.

Yes his shot are not clay court specialist i think he can play well on hard-court. His problem agaisnt andy is that after the delusion of losing the first set at the tiebreaker, he got too down on hinself, too disappointed, and Roddick nticed it and keep the ball in play.

The italian Tv commentator where so stupid they keep repeating: it's surprising that Roddick is playin from the baseline and asked him: Roddick reply: "i don't think so i always play from the baseline i just don't push the ball as hard as i usually do". There's a big difference between playin from the baseline more conservative and getting to the net!

Only he knows if he's willing to put the work in. Or will he be content to have a few good results and a decent pro lifestyle. Then there are injuries - if you can't avoid them you have no chance.

He definitely showed potential. But as others mentioned, 'on clay'. What will he do during the US hardcourt season?

That's right and he has no weapons and is mentally weak. I don't think he has much of a pro career ahead of him.

I find his game very similar to Daniele's, don't you think? Maybe they developed a similar relationship than Ancic-Ivanisevic?

He has similar mannerisms when serving, and very similar strokes.

Daniele is the name, Bracciali is the second name, he is younger and he is more fisically gifted than the small bracciali, there are similarities like one handed backhand flat shots that remind him but this mean he can do well on the us season.

Roddick, as said by many Pros got better on clay, as the other american blake did. He is not so easy to beat as in the past, and he is a very experienced player!

I know Daniele is his name, but I like to call my countrymen by their first name :)

That was exactly my point. He's younger and more physically gifted than Bracciali, but I find Daniele way more talented and with a better understanding of the game.

Not only that, but I find Bolelli's game really similar to Bracciali's, specially his ground game and serving motion. Unfortunately, the attacking mindset is not there :(

I think Bolleli in 1-2-3 years will be where Wawrinka is now... a better player, more consistent, and hitting harder through the ball with more confidence.

I'm italian. I was born in italy from italian parents. More precisely, in Castiglione di Gar***nana, nella provincia di Lucca. Toscano puro :)

I LIVE in Argentina. There's a difference ;)

Bolleli has a top notch forehand and a decend backhand. He is 23 I think and a bit too late for him to be anything worth mentioning in greater terms, for example being a future top 10 player. I do think he has a potential to make a few good results here and there but almost everyone in top 100 do have it. He is just about as average as they come and seems that hitting with Federer on numerous occasions was nothing else but good scouting from the great man - he saw the great Fh of Bolleli's as a chance to practise against such.

Yeah he declared that he takes inspiration from federer strokes!

He was born on 8 Oct 1985 so he's 22. Just think about players that came out great at 27 28 years, he is young enough to have a brilliant carrer! His best shot his crosscourt forehand, impressive, but his coach said he is natural eith his backhand as well!

What u think?

I think he has a promising career. Nothing special but a top 20 player probably. Can't see him winning a Slam.
