As expected, he lost.
He's not healthy enough to play and only played this first round for money.
Tursunov can be good on these courts but it's a bad loss for him especially the score.
He should withdraw from Montreal and only play when he feels ready to go.
I disagree on all counts. I think he came because he really wants to get back on the court and play and this is part of how he gets back to feeling ready to go. He doesn't like to practice as much as play himself back into form and this is part of the process. He already said he hadn't even picked up a racket since his 1st round loss at Wimbledon a few weeks ago so this is part of the slow build up back into form.
I'm just glad he felt well enough to play and didn't have to retire or lose 0 and 1 or something. Tursunov is an aggressive offensive-minded player and when he's in his better form, he's no cake walk. A rusty Gilles losing to a more in form match ready Tursunov isn't a big deal in my book. Again, the victory here is in the fact that Gilles is back on tour and ready to play himself back into form. It'll take some time to get his groove and confidence back in his game.
