7-5 in the TB. A poor match overall, Gilles sucked heavily throughout the 1st and 2nd set. He lucked out the win in the TB and then Smyczek fell apart in the third set. Don't know who's Gilles playing next, but if it's a solid opponent, he will lose.

true, it shouldn't, this little girl had everything under control but he suddenly went in tears and said he doesn't want to play with this toys anymore, normal thing for little girls :shrug:

For some reason I like Smyczek, so disappointing to see him fall apart like that after outplaying Muller for 1.9 sets.

Smyczek was better for 2 sets, he should have won this match, somehow lost TB and in final set just get broken and wasn´t able to break back. Muller with this kind of performance won´t do much here. First decend opponent and he is out.
