RG FQR: Magic runs out. Rosol def. Gicquel 7-5 6-1

I read something that said Marco said he was fatigued after yesterday's long fight with Ungur. So I guess the fighting and battles he's endured these last days caught up to him in this rematch v Rosol, who blew a 5-*0 30-30 lead (is that correct?) in the third set last week in Bordeaux.

Unfortunate result for the event but Marc will have an opportunity for a LL so not all hope is lost.

I thought Rosol was a bad player, Filo?

heh

:lol:

It's ok, it's not the first time someone that has entered in an argument with me has left it with his tail between his legs.;)

I haven't left the argument, since there wasn't an argument in the first place. Just a difference in opinion ;)

His groundshots to me are garbage shots, he's a mediocre mover, and his net game is adequate. He serves well, he's pretty consistent *for a challenger player* and he returns decently, when he can get a hit on the ball he can hit it hard. But nothing special in his game whatsoever.

Marc is a considerably better player, he would have won were he not fatigued.

Funny, that's exactly how I would describe most of your favorites.

No, but seriously, stop with the hate. Gicquel was a good player and he has some past results to show off that, but he's 35 now, this result is completely normal.

I think most of my favorites have more talent than Rosol does, though. Simone, definitely. Pippo, definitely. Bjorn, definitely. I do think he's better than RRH, though.

I don't hate Rosol, he has his moments, he did a good job to qualify here, but Marc to me is still a better player than Rosol.

Should I search your posts to confirm this or just assume you're being pretentious?
