Insanely bad... over 60 UE from Thiemo alone. Either one could've won it, and the price is a whipeout from Melzer :)

De Bakker gave up a couple of weeks ago, his post-match twitter summaries each time being "sh*t happens".

Awful match, de Bakker clearly didn't care, couldn't be bothered moving his feet, and Giraldo was sososososososo tight, especially on bps.

Choker Giraldo has finally won a tight match on the main level.

I've got a question to Spanish speakers. Lahyani pronounces "Giraldo" like "(Frederico) Gil". Is is correct? I have my doubts :o

Good win for Girlado here.

Still, a bit sad for De Bakker though.. he's had a good run lately.

Pff, Thiemo. Good that his season is over he was terrible last couple of tournaments.
