it's direct translation :shrug:I only said it because it was in the thread title at first and it's not a nickname that's used a lot.

the entire match was such a mess :help:

No idea why Flavio is playing here (indoors) instead of defending his title in Burnie :cuckoo:

The field there is so weak as well.

Uhm, of course he is going to play ATP events over Challengers :shrug: More money to be had.

Great fight from Cipo on what is definitely not his best surface :yeah:

Well if he had lost 1R (which he could have depending on who he drew, and given that this is a terrible surface for him) he gets less money than if he made the final or won Burnie (or Kazan). Sure he would have to reach the final, but it was far more likely there. (if he loses to Simon he also gets less than if he wins Kazan)

If this were a 500 tournament I could understand (for money), or if there were no other winnable HC Challengers this week, but both weren't true.

Gicquel close to retirement after this loss, and no one will regret him.

are you kidding?

playing Burnie would have meant hanging around Australia for that last two weeks and Kazan is in the arsehole of nowhere with temperatures of -25C. Neither are exactly appealing options.

Of course he's going to play an ATP event in a city probably an hour flight from his home. There are more things that simple points and prize money to consider.

Well that's fair enough but I'm just saying if you're gonna argue from prize money/points it's not a good argument :shrug:

He'd better gone to South America to play on clay.
