Re: Fredrico Gil


Damn unlucky draw again! Gil played well, but Simon was just better in the decisive moments.
I hope Gil might secure some decent points in the next two weeks, otehrwise it's relying all on Estoril where he would need at least a SF to remain at Top-100 (best case scenario, I think he needs around 90 points from one tournament, or 100 from two, in the next four weeks, if he doesn't want to play Wimby Qualies).
But he's playing really well, I think he can make it!
A good run in Monte Carlo would be 2 wins at qualifying and a win on first round. Am I dreaming too much? I think not!
C'mon Gil!

Re: Fredrico Gil

Brilliant qualification in Monte Carlo. Now a decent Draw (finally), he will play Stakhovsky.
Go Gil!

Re: Fredrico Gil

What a clear message! In-form clay-courter. Took down Stakhovsky, a top-40 in a solid fashion (6-1 6-3), after demolition work in Qualies.
Next F. Mayer, Gil beat him last year in Estoril, decent chance. Then, back-from-injury Monfils?
Must have been an agressive display, not many long rallies, I imagine, due to duration of match.
This is what he needs to advance a bit more and climb in the ranks, before Estoril (home tournament, final last year, lots of points to defend).

Go Gil!!!

C'mon Gil!
As you can see from previous post, better rum Then IN my Dreams now.
Great victory today, NeXT Clownfils, it's not impossible, since he comes from injury...
I'm positive that he already secured a direct entrance IN Wimbledon, even if NeXT week CH and Estoril turn into a disaster. But I really expect the Best, since He's playing so well.
Go Gil!

Re: Fredrico Gil

He defended Estoril Points enven before it starts Estoril. No he almost got no pressure. Even playing like that will be hard to repeat the final of last year cause this feild is too good, but with a good draw he can reach at least QF or SF at his best.

Re: Fredrico Gil


What Gil achieved today is beyond what words can describe, for a Portuguese Tennis fan, but I'll try (this might seem exagerated, but this is really the first MS QF ever for a Portuguese player...).
He played like a portuguese had never played before. He is our best player ever, and I saw him play last year at Estoril Open, where he reached the final, and it was mostly heart and will. This is also his hignest rank points in one week, since he acummulated already 205 points in Monte Carlo.
Today, he was a machine, reaching to every ball, getting the corners or the lines at almost every point, and with a lot less unforced errors than Clownfils.
Monfils was great at first set (Certinfy called this first set the set of the year), just exhausted in the second set.
I think that first set was at least the set of a lifetime, something for Gil to see over and over again. Gil was a true warrior, but with a lot of class in it.
So, he is not a Top-10 player, he lacks destroying weapons, but now I'm more confident that he will reach Top-50. He will reach his best ever rank next week, what ever is the result tomorrow.
But maybe tomorrow he makes it, can you imagine... I think that he stands some chances against Murray, if he's fit, althought it's beyond my wildest dreams.
We'll see, but today was the most glorious page of Portuguese Tennis yet, I can tell you.
One might think that a lot of goods are to come, from the likes of Gastão Elias or Frederico Silva, but the fact is that, with Gil in this form, the future is now!!!

Re: Fredrico Gil

good win! Murray not in best form and has recently lost to players lower-ranked than Gil so he still has a chance, but Gil had an injury time-out in the 2nd set I hope it is not too serious.

I also heard he did a dance routine at the players party

can't Gil still get that SE? Smucav has it cleared so it must be right but in theory he could, I guess maybe he denied wanting it or something? I thought he could still get it even if he withdrew from this entry list, or has he entered a challenger or something?

and yesh222, there is a site I refer to that has the entry lists, but last time I posted the link it got deleted so I assume it isn't allowed to be posted

I didn't think that mattered, I asked about a similar situation last year and was told(by smucav) that a SE could be awarded to anyone who didn't have DE, and who wasn't scheduled to play another event that week and it didn't matter if they were in the qualifying list or not

Gil entered Napoli Challenger, so he couldn't get the SE spot. Anyway he could've been a direct entry, but he withdrew from the alternate list.

He wouldn't be DE yet, one more person would have had to withdraw

but yeah I didn't know about the Napoli thing, that's why I asked, thanks

that event I asked about was Shanghai, there was QEL, the player I asked about wasn't on it, but I was told if he did make the SF of Toyko he would be eligible for the SE. He lost in Round 2

Gil lost though, case closed
