I'm more worried about Granollers. He seems to always play his best in Valencia and beat Gilles here two years ago.

Yes, I was just thinking about Granollers' 3-1 HtoH against Gilles. But then, Granollers hasn't been playing since a retirement in Metz. He could be rusty. Either way, there's just no easy road here. I kinda wish that he chose Basel over Valencia, much easier draw, even Chardy is seeded there. But he never plays Basel, which is a faster court than Valencia. So I guess Valencia is okay, I like this tournament anyway, since it belongs to Juanqui and Ferrer, with so stunning architectual.

If he won this tournament (not impossible ) it would surely go down as his greatest title ever, considering the draw he may have to negotiate!

Best of luck, Gillou!

Tipsy again? blah! Well, hopefully he feels good. When he was pain free he beat him and when he wasn't he lost.

Tough draw as well for JCF's last tournament of his ATP career. Gonna miss him. Almagro is a tough ask, but I hope he can win at least one match. It would be great if he could make it to the quarterfinals to face his good buddy and co-owner of the tournament. It would seem more appropriate for a farewell.

Either way, Good luck to both Gilles and Juan Carlos!!!!

i like the draw, tipsy is a good match up for him, raonic, muller and dolgo - only 1 can come out of that pack, hopefully the'll eat each other up. he just needs to play free and up his game a bit, a SF is quite plausible and from there who knows. GL :]

Gilles just broke again to lead 5-4, about to serve for the set, then Tipsy retired. Everyone's in tanking mode today.

A wins a win right? Anyway, i'm glad Gilles got through so today wasn't a total bust, because unfortunately Juanqui did not as I feared. I'm not gonna lie, I got a little teary-eyed right along with him during his comments after the match. Maybe he and Ferrer can still win the doubles though.
