Bordeaux CH R1: Old man from Tunisia comes back to defeat Rosol 3-6 6-4 7-6(2)

overall not a high quality match

rosol was close to being disqualified in the second, obviously thought (line)judges were in gicquel's favour

Gicquel lucked the second set, Rosol broke early and cruised to a 5-0 lead in the 3rd
Rosol had 2 mps at *5-1, Gicquel saved them with all or nothing shots right into the corner and broke
Gicquel started to believe again, fought massively
afterwards Rosol collapsed, managed to hold from 15-30 at 5-5 though
in the tiebreak, Rosol had an early *2-1 lead, Gicquel won 3 points in a row with insane defensive shots and closed it out on his first mp

Awesome stuff Marc
Would be cool if someone had recorded the whole match.

btw, rosol avoided the handshake, instead he tried to get into a fight with gicquel who just walked away and let the umpire handle the situation

Rosol lost with a 3rd set 5-0 lead?!

Don't forget about Cilić with Minarz in Prague.

Rosol was 5-0* 40-40 in the final set when I looked at the scoreboard. Maybe he had MP's to win the set 6-0? Anyway, this is why he will never be any good
