I did. When Seppi is on he is really high quality. He always seems to play great tennis in Australia, then tapers off a bit for the rest of the year. If Seppi could play this way consistently all year, I would rate him Italian #1.
There is nothing wrong with him except he's also still developing. IMO, the weakest part of his game is his serve. The toss is way too high and it's erratic. Also, he's too thin for his height. He needs to pack on about 15 pounds or so.
Fantastic match between Simon and Millman, with Simon getting home in a 3rd set tie breaker after a marathon match lasting nearly 3 hours. Many gruelling rallies and a tough one to lose, but might not be such a bad thing with next week in mind.
Italy's Andreas Seppi knocked out top seed Stefanos Tsitsipas with a nerve-free performance 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 on
Thursday at the Sydney International. The 34-year-old Italian saved six of seven break points against Greece's
#NextGenATP star, and when it came time to serve for the match, Seppi didn't flinch.
"I always play my best tennis in Australia," said Seppi.
"I really enjoy playing here. It’s great to be back here and in another semi-finals.
It was very important to start well in the second set. I think was good to have early break so I could play a little more aggressive.
It worked out in the end."
