Re: Week 40: Mons, Belgium [Entry List]

Strange the way things moved on this tournament this week. All the favourite players lost early and really sorry for Xavier.

Gicquel is a really lucky loser . This is not surprising to see him winning and especially a couple of good victories like the ones over Stefan Koubek, Bemelmans and Vliegen. Good week for Darcis too but Marc should win if he plays decently.

Good to see Mannarino in another SF and he shouldn`t have many troubles to beat Dustin Brown.

Darcis def. Gicquel 7-6(3) 7-6(3)

Steve played REALLY well today. I've said it before and I'll say it again, when he's on his game, he's a very dangerous player and really a top 60 player at least. Great serving and he hit the forehand and slice great.

Marc was alright, he saved himself with some great serves and volleys. Darcis was the better player throughout the match, I can see why Marc has been struggling but also you can see glimpses of his previous high levels. His returning was poor, though, and he made too many cheap errors.

GL in the final Steve! Get this home country title and get back in the top 100 where you belong.

Re: Week 40: Mons, Belgium [Entry List]

That volley was clearly out, but luckily it didn't matter. Dustin was barely professional level at the end of the first set, completely ridiculous play. He S&Vs a lot, but his volleying skills are extremely inconsistent, and he lacks great technique. Adrian is a good returner and has good movement, not a good match-up for Brown. Hope he gets this second set too.

Re: Week 40: Mons, Belgium [Entry List]

I agree with Flyboy about his opinion of Gicquel vs Darcis match . Good to see Adrian in a new final too. Hard to predict a winner tomorrow although Steve may feel quite more comfortable with the local support.

Mannarino can't play finals good. Steve has home court advantage as plus, he must win tomorrow.
