Lyon Final: Grosjean d. Gicquel 7-6(5) 6-4

I wonder any gas left in the tank for Grosjean in the doubles. Plus he gets a WC into Bercy next week.

Re: Lyon Final: Grosjean d. Gicquel 7-6(5) 6-4

surely thats the first time someone has won a title at ATP level by beating 5 people from the same country

Santoro, Tsonga, Gicquel, Benneteau, Cadart.

Bit of a mickey mouse title if you ask me

Great forehand to win the title. He served very well and Gicquel fails again in Lyon.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Well done Seba! Hopefully he can improve his ranking next season...shouldn't be too difficult.

Wow, beating five Frenchmen in a row. That's sort of boring.

Congratulations to Grosjean for ending his title drought though. It hasn't been a good year for him so this will help.

I won't miss the commentators on TLM ...
In 20 seconds they told " there were 8 french out of 14 players in 1/8 and finally the French number 2 won the tournament "

Re: Lyon Final: Grosjean d. Gicquel 7-6(5) 6-4

Grosjean wins the battle between him and the rest of France to take Lyon. Well deserved and shocking really that it is just a fourth title.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Good win for the french inside out fh player. Hopefully this will help him to climb up the ranking and gain a more fitting ranking (top 20-30 at least).

Congrats, Grosjean!!
The FH pass on the 3rd MP was just fab!
And he looked so happy when he won.
It was a good final. Both guys fought hard till the end.
