Re: The Official X-man cheering thread
X-Man is ranked #84 on the rankings this week. Yesterday he lost in Estoril to Garcia-Lopez 2-6 6-7 in the first round, and he has a 4-9 record in ATP events this season. His best result is a QF in Houston, beating Isner 7-6 in the third set in the second round.
Next scheduled tournament for Xavier is the Bordeaux challenger next week. Good luck next week and beyond X-Man!
Xavier is the #6 seed and is playing Ouanna in R1, a difficult match as he is a dangerous player. If he wins he has a good chance to make the SFs, so hopefully he can pass through his first round test and make a deep run here.
Xman won his 1st rounder at RG! Glad to see he's still battling
