Wimbledon R1: [31] Raonic def. [LL] Gicquel 6-3 7-6(3) 6-3

Disappointing and pretty disgusting result, but it was over when Marc failed to win the 3-2 point in the second set tiebreak, and then missed an easy forehand at 3-4. The only positive I can see from this is at least Marc's name was in the draw, and he gained 10 extra points for being in the MD.

A lucky Loser lost, pretty great result imo.

Next up, Harrison and Bolelli

It would have been better had Marc won, but it doesn't matter much. Marc now has 479 points, and with nothing to defend these next few months, is only one good result from the top 100. He's ditching the grass and back onto clay. Hopefully he wins next weeks' tournament in Braunschweig.

It's much better that Raonic won. He is far more dangerous

seemed like his serve was letting him down a bit in the second, but it seemed to be back in the third. Good job, Milos! Good luck in your next match

Maybe 4 or 5 if he wants to get more of a workout in.

Better for you and Nadal. For sane people however, this is a great result.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Stop acting as though you know Gicquel on a first name basis. The guy doesn't take the sport seriously and is on his last legs. He's a noone in the sport. Milos is has a future and is future top20 material.

stop talking shit
