Re: Fredrico Gil

Trying to revive a bit this forum about Gil. I'm major fan, think he is doing a lot for tennis in Portugal.
But, doesn't it seem strange that he already said that his last two tournaments of the season will be Montpellier and Valencia? Such strong fields, and IMO he still didn't secure enough points for dirrect acceptance at the Aussie Open. Long way to travel to risk the qualifying... Shouldn't he play one or two challengers instead?

Quoting myself!, just to say that, after this win today against Roger-vasselin, IMO Gil is at the Aussie Open directly.
I've been taking a good look at the ranks, and at least 10 guys above him will lose a lot of points until the end of the season, so he's safe to finish now at the Top-100, I think, even if he looses the rest of his games (Tsonga and Valencia Qualies).
If I'm correct, congrats, Gil, at a season were he played so irregularly (more frequently playing poorly), but with the best result of his (or of any portuguese) career, at home, at the Estoril Open, that epic run to the final! A lot of heart through out the season, just like today again.

Re: Fredrico Gil

Gil eliminated from Valencia early on Qualies with 6-3, 4-6, 7-6 (7-4).

Considering the fact that he was one break ahead in 2nd set and 1 mini-break in 3rd set Tie-Break, this is awful. I hope he comes back way stronger than he actually is.

Re: Fredrico Gil

Gil eventually finished his season at 101, but with the same points of 100... He is now into Chennai and AO (entry list just released, uff!) and will play Sidney Qualy in the middle.
I hope he does better at this first tournaments than last season, finally advances at least one round at a grand Slam, and hope to see him in South America, for the golden Swing in February, playing at Santiago, Costa do Sauipe and Buenos Aires.
Go, Gil!!

Re: Fredrico Gil

Well, I think he do a lot better than he did this year. He should play more clay challengers than HC ATP-tournaments.
Australia is okay, but after the SA swing he should go to Europe to play challengers, and skip IW and Miami.

Re: Fredrico Gil

Good idea, Ad Win, and definitely a right one. He should play events like Meknes and Marrakech. Big points, clay events, weaker draws. He needs as many points as possible before Estoril.

He should have a better season next year with a full season of ATP competition under his belt and some good rest, but he needs to get better on HC. When he first came up, he did it by mixing good clay results with some good HC results, but the last year and a half, he's become only a clay courter. Now that Rui is ahead of him in the ranking, he should have extra motivation for 2011.

Re: Fredrico Gil

After a disappointing loss against Berdych, Gil is now playing Sidney qualies. In the first round Gil defeated Dudi Sela(2) 6/4, 4/6 and 6/1 and Matosevic with 3/6, 6/3 and 6/3. Considering that he played 6 sets yesterday he will face some problems against Greul who defeated Kukushkin without troubles.

Re: Fredrico Gil

Through to second round after Nieminen withdrew with a knee injury after the first set. Hard to tell how he was playing when Jarkko was injured, but neither player looked particularly bad at all. He will play Simon or Lu next.

Re: Fredrico Gil

Simon and Lu will play 11:00 AM (local time) and will finish the match. 6-0, 3-2 for the frechman. Would be very interesting for Fred if this went to a decider set, but i think Gilles will win in 2, and won't be that tired, against Gil.

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.

Re: Fredrico Gil

A good look at the ranks leads me to say that Gil has now a decent chance of getting directly in ATP 1000 Miami, and is safely directly accepted at Casablanca, Estoril and Roland Garros. So, lots of ground for a good run in the ranks this year. He really played decently against Monfils at the Aussie Open, so good prospects for the near future... Every point counts now, since he has a lot of points to defend in the mid-season.
