Congrats Florian, congrats on wasting a 3/1 lead in the third to lose to a clay-court clown.

Anyone with a little brain would pick him on clay against a clay-clown like Gicquel.

Not so sure if Gicquel was the "claycourt clown" there... (btw, I think his game is better for clay than for other courts)

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Gu, Gicuel's best surface is indoors but he made a living playing on clay events in France, so his win here is not such a surprise. As for Mayer, I agree with you, he is well known for his compact forehand swing. All in all, it was a close match beforehand, I would not be shocked with any result.

I saw Mayer at the AO live against Haas and I wasn't impressed.
