I was not actually planning to watch the 3rd round match between Andreas Seppi and Stanislas Wawrinka in the Rome Open because I had already seen Seppi play and win the Serbia Open a few weeks ago. Anyhow, since I was switching between Li Na and Seppi's match, I got hooked with the Italian's match as it took a tiebreak for each set - the first set tiebreak going to Wawrinka, while Seppi took the second set tiebreak - and since Seppi was Italian - watching it became more thrilling and involving since the Rome crowd was pretty vocal about their support for their local player.
Wawrinka had six match points but never converted - and he led the third set 52 and looked set to win the match. But Seppi had other plans and slowly regained his composure and evened it out at 55. It eventually led to another thrilling tiebreak and yes, Wawrinka had SEVERAL match pointS at 63 but failed to convert ALL OF THEM! Finally, when Seppi got his first match point at 76, he converted immediately!
Seppi will meet Roger Federer in the quarterfinals tomorrow so let's see how the local crowd will support him.
