Federer def. Gicquel 6-3, 7-6(2), 6-3

I was only watching a scoreboard but it seems like a pretty decent performance by Federer. Stepping it up when he had to in the second and third sets.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

I was watching the scoreboard as well and looks like Gicquel played quite well to keep it close. 15 aces from Roger so seems like his serve was clicking.

Need ideas for a new signature...

Yeah, Federer upped his performance at the right time. I was watching the scoreboard, and at 3-3 in the 3rd set, Giquel blew away two breakpoints, and after that Fed just finished him off like he does with all his opponents.

Gicquel took the second set to a tiebreaker pretty easily. He must've played okay at least.

Federer has a lot of work to do if he is to get past Tomas/Blake and Haas/Davydenko.

Did anyone catch the match in full, or at least a couple sets? How did the players play?

Gicquel managed to go to the tie-break against Federer. The Frenchman won 12 games in 3 sets. Federer made a lot of errors. It's the beginning of an end of Roger Federer. He will lose the next match and what is more he won't win any ATP title anymore. He'll drop to about 1000th place in the rank next year

Gicquel played quite well, Roger was decent and stepped it up when he needed to.
