Hey they're brazilian after all . But its portugal against Brazil next though.

Anyway, it was really horrible from Almagro, UEs everywhere, composure non-existent. And the Footfault for 4-0 in the 2nd set tiebreak was hilarious

Very funny match. At one point Almagro tried to kill Gil with a shot (Gil played a good drop shot and Almagro just wacked it at Gil's head).

There was also a funny point in the second set when Gil broke after only playing exaggerated slices on breakpoint.

Gilberto Gil does it again.

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".

I don't like him, such a behaviour can't change my opinion about him...

Gil Peacock confirms once again how useless tie-breaker he is on the main level (36-57... 38 % -> just awful record for a Top 20 player)

Great opportunity for Bellucci to notch within one ATP tournament first quarter-semi-and-final

Gil allows players to hang themselves, GGL didn't need a second invitation.

For him to make a main-tour hardcourt semi-final is nothing other than a joke.

I thought montanes - Hernandez was bad at that time but nvm. This belluci-gil SF has to be the worst ever.

By the way, now Gil can reclaim another SE for next week, right?

Who was the last player who was a SE in two consecutive weeks?

So funny how the crowd was behind Gil. The way Almagro smacked a few balls so hard in fustration and then to hear the crowd go "OOOOOOOHHH" to taunt him was hilarious.
