what a great win for Decoud. and this is not such a big suprise, decoud is a clay courter who had some matches in the qualies so that helped him a lot to be ready for today,and its not like Rochus is playing that well like in 2006.

That was pathetic! Rochus had *5-2 in the tiebreak and barely got through it after saving an MP at 7-8. Then he breaks for *1-0 and loses six games in a row. Ridiculous!

Rochus is done. Can't compete nowadays with his lack of weapons I'm afraid.

wow..nice surprise to see this. I watched Decoud Play live, in the Sao Paulo Challenger and I really enjoyed his style of playing, really smooth. He is problably just a little taller than Rochus but, he is a letf handed that makes the ball fly with ease..

Kinda predictable.

Not a last time The Belgian has nothing left in the bank in the 5th set.

Well prepared argie just did his business and congrats to him.

Btw it was a match between 2 runners and Ollie ran out of gas just too early

By far, this is Sebas biggest triumph on his career. He struggled along his life on Future tournaments until last year he jumped onto the top 300 ranked players and started to play challenger tournaments.

I saw him playing a couple of years ago. His forehand and serve are quite respectful. His backhand is ok. Typical claycourt player without any special talent but only his will to win. This is well deserve prize as he never gave up on his career.

Te felicito Sebas!
