Re: Fredrico Gil

Spectabulous! Great to see him finally winning a match at a Grand Slam. Totally deserved.
Great start of the season (for his level). Good run at hard-court down-under swing. Good wins against Dudi Sela and Simon Greul, and now Cuevas!
He has some (tiny) chances against Monfils (he also played a five-seter, and was nearly ousted).
After the AO, he will play one of his favourite parts of the season, the South American Golden Swing. Up until now, he only has direct acceptance in Chile, but I hope he manages to round-up with good number of points after February, to approach his best ever rank (66th) and start compensating for future loss of points in Estoril (another final would be a dream come true).
He really needs an improvement on that serve, if he wants to stick permanently at top-75, and have a go at entering top-50. But with that height...
Anyway, huge contribution to portuguese tennis, like no other!!
Go Gil.
