Winning game 5, Volandri once again broke his fellow countryman in game 6,5-1, and eventually stormed away the first set captivating 6-1.
The second set had the similar situation. Volandri broke the fellow Italian in his opening game serve to lead 1-0. He then extended his lead to 2-0 and further on to 3-0 winning another breaking point.
Giorgini finally broke through to cut the lead to 1-3, however, that was certainly not enough. The 27-year-old then won game 5 as well and lessened the lead to 2-3 before he got the final beating by his senior tennis star.
Wining back-to-back games including a breakpoint, Volandri took away the final 3 games of the set with ease, beating Giorgini in two sets and in less than an hour. The final scores read 6-1 and 6-2 in favour of Filippo Volandri.
