Gicquel played a lot of miracle shots in the tie break especially the one saving the match point.

Amazing :worship:

2nd career final for Gicquel.

Gicquel saved two match points at 6-4 in the tiebreak. Great fight from him and he surprisingly defends his final here from a year ago.

That had to be shot of the day. Incredible. Gicquel was in trance after that. Me too :D

Shaky match from Marc, he was playing much better in the first rounds, Falla looked actually like the better player in the 3rd set (I didn't see the rest). I was nicely surprised by him this week.
But what a fight of Marc in the TB. :yeah: That must feel incredible to save MP that way at your home event.

But what a fight at the end indeed. :yeah:

Agreed, Falla was the better player in the 3rd set but you have to give it to Gicquel's determination.

Falla :hug:

"It was a great tournament for me", a dejected Falla said. "I was one ball away from the final; it's a shame, but nothing I could do. He made a great point at 6-4, the match point. I went for the point, I was looking for the match. I have to look forward because it was a big tournament for me. I am back in the top 100 so that's a positive thing."

Poor Falla. You have feel for the guy, so close to his 1st ATP final.

I have a feeling Gicquel will be denied again today; Grosjean is determined to get his revenge for losing to him last year, plus he wants to get his first title in over 2 years.

Actually Grosjean hasn't won since St.Petersburg in 2002 so this may be his last chance to grab some silverware. He starts slight favourite today.
