"Machado & Gil", let's hope Rui gets motivated and makes a good game against Giraldo . I know Giraldo is in good form and huge favorite, but he lost against Gil in Estoril (albeit in clay) and he is far from invincible.
I have faith. Go portuguese tennis!
I must admit that I have little hope on Rui's win tomorrow. Giraldo is a good Hardcourt player, and Rui is a weak (even weaker than Gil) player in this surface. All my faith were on Fred's perfomance today, especially because Pablo Vuevas is a tipical clay player, and Gil is not that bad on this surface, when he's on.
But Rui have a chance, even if it's small. I think he's got like 15% chance of being in 2nd round. And I hope he capitalize on that small chance
I also have to say, if I could pick just one portuguese player to win a match in this tournament, clearly it would be Frederico, since he never won a GS match, untill today. Machado as already 2 GS wins. But of course, I want him badly to win tomorrow.
Portuguese tennis FTW!
