Great comeback saved a matchpoint in the second set with a clean forehand winner of the return and went on to win playing some great stuff, well done Gil

Gil

The most impressive was seeing him playing aggressive tennis at times!

De Voest was clearly injured and could barely run in the final set.

A shame to see De Voest lose here, he looked good in the first round

Yeah, Rik's movement was clearly impaired in that final set.

Pretty poor to average match, really. Am glad Gil won it though.
