RG FQR: Magic runs out. Rosol def. Gicquel 7-5 6-1

I read something that said Marco said he was fatigued after yesterday's long fight with Ungur. So I guess the fighting and battles he's endured these last days caught up to him in this rematch v Rosol, who blew a 5-*0 30-30 lead (is that correct?) in the third set last week in Bordeaux.

Unfortunate result for the event but Marc will have an opportunity for a LL so not all hope is lost.

It's ok, it's not the first time someone that has entered in an argument with me has left it with his tail between his legs.

I haven't left the argument, since there wasn't an argument in the first place. Just a difference in opinion

His groundshots to me are garbage shots, he's a mediocre mover, and his net game is adequate. He serves well, he's pretty consistent *for a challenger player* and he returns decently, when he can get a hit on the ball he can hit it hard. But nothing special in his game whatsoever.

Marc is a considerably better player, he would have won were he not fatigued.

Funny, that's exactly how I would describe most of your favorites.

No, but seriously, stop with the hate. Gicquel was a good player and he has some past results to show off that, but he's 35 now, this result is completely normal.

Good for the game.

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

I think most of my favorites have more talent than Rosol does, though. Simone, definitely. Pippo, definitely. Bjorn, definitely. I do think he's better than RRH, though.

I don't hate Rosol, he has his moments, he did a good job to qualify here, but Marc to me is still a better player than Rosol.

Should I search your posts to confirm this or just assume you're being pretentious?
