Did Berlocq choke :sobbing:

warlocq gave it his all in that tb, left it all out and Simon still pulled it out. Fatigue was definitely a factor from Umag, which Gilles thrives on.

Great win for Gilles.
Berlocq fought for every points and had many break chances to break back in 2nd set, if he could break one more game maybe he should have won in 2. Then better player with volley won the crucial TB

Like I've said before, Berlocq the Warlocq is tanking so he can be at his peak for the Olympics. He's going to take the titles you know? He won the first set to prove to everyone that he could beat Simon, but then tanked the rest of the match. Expect peak Berlocq for the Olympics :armed:
