3/20 breakpoints converted from Guillermo, but he got it done in the end. Good luck at Wimby, Denis.

istomin was up a set and a break, and he got too arrogant. He was immediately broken back and played passive tennis the rest of the match. Wawrinka will brush him aside in 3 if he displays that kind of poor form.

This is really surprising to see Garcia Lopez in the final of a grass event! He is ok playing on hard courts but I would had never expected him to reach a grass court final. He achieved some good victories like the ones against Benneteau and Istomin though. I miss the old days of the faster grass courts amd not this joke. :sad:

As a matter of fact, the courts at Eastbourne are traditional, fast grass courts. It baffles me how people confuse Wimbledon slowing down their grass with every other tournaments doing it.

And GGL reached the semis here last year too, no big surprise.

Have u been this week in Eastbourne? I watched today the final on TV and inspite there was a light rain (which make courts faster) there was a clear bounce on the balls played by GGL and on some rallies played by Llodra too.

If you have been this week in Eastbourne I give you my right hand and I would like if you can expand your opinion about the court conditions.

No, I haven't been to Eastbourne. But I have a TV and eyes. The courts at Eastbourne have been playing fast and low-bouncing the whole week. Faster and lower-bouncing than in Rosmalen, for instance.
