Marius played really good, close to his top level, while Ignatik had his moments but was inconsistent. He also missed a set point in the 2nd at 5-3 40-30 with a double fault, and after that he fell apart and lost 4 games in a row.
Solid match by Marius, who won 7-6 6-4. The tiebreak in the first set was insane, Gicquel came back from 6-2, but Copil managed eventually to win the tiebreak, 11-9. If Marius keeps playing like this, he should enter top 100 soon because until RG, he has only 26 points to defend.
