Re: RG Final qualifying match: Levine makes Gicquel feel old 6-4, 6-2

Not a good result for the game.

Marco left his comeback way too late. He was down 2-6 *0-2 0-40 and at that point was serving 36%, had 6 double faults and held serve once. He started doing better after that period on serve but only won four return points in the second set. I think there was something wrong with him. This is a very sad result, since it could be Marco's last RG and Levine doesn't bring anything to this event.

Levine had 40-15 to deuce in the final game but closed it out.

Gicquel beat Matosevic yesterday. And he loses to Levine today? Doesn't add up. Something was wrong here. Such a shame. Hopefully, it doesn't demoralize Marco too much.

Gicquel is still a legend. Maybe he decided to go partying yesterday.

Gicquel has never been known for consistency and predictability.

But I'm really surprised at the result. The scoreline more so than the outcome.

Yeah, I agree, let's make a tennis event for old scrubs who are too slow to be good and hit to softly do win a point. Maybe it could even have a Volandri-Gicquel final. I agree, that would be what is good for tennis. Let's do it.

Nestor - Chvojka - Pospisil - Raonic - Peliwo

Volandri-Gicquel is infinitely more interesting than seeing the same Roger/Rafa/Nole/Murray/Ferrer shit over and over and over, when their matches are shit and the result is predictable before the match begins.

Gicquel and Volandri may be older but they're surely better than guys on this forum who get more attention. Volandri is a better player than Dimitrov, for example, yet is hated on here for no reason. Gicquel plays a MUCH more entertaining game than Raonic, yet gets no attention due to the fact he's in challengers.

You have got to be kidding me.

I'll grant you the Gicquel-Raonic one, but, man, are you wide of the mark with the Volandri comment.

The results show that Volandri is better than Dimitrov. As for game, Volandri's BH is better than any shot Dimitrov has. Dimitrov has more overall talent but he's currently not the better player.

I don't know why most people here dislike Volandri. I've yet to hear a concrete reason. I think people dislike him because I like him. That's about it. Because his game is something that people like from others, yet when it comes to Filippo, suddenly he becomes unacceptable and not someone to be followed.
