Great week for Gastão and a big mental upgrade on his game on the final! The beginning of 2nd set was very intense, with home crowd pushing for Rogerinho and some judging over-rules that could break him mentally. He was 3-6 1-2* down after that and still managed to bring it back.

I think that his ranking will be around 106, cauze there are 14 points from last week semis that are still missing on the rankings

I like Gastão a lot, and it's even better now that he is within one good tournament of becoming Portuguese number one. He's clearly the best from that country.

Since 2 years, he's moving in the right direction tough. Don't know what to think about his potential
You have to remember that Gastão had a serious injury two years ago.

There isn't information yet.

Rogerinho was without energy on the 2nd and 3rd set but still another great week for Gastão. Will move to the 112th position tomorrow, top-100 is coming.

Yes!!! Gastao a break up in the last set! Now keep your focus, specially in your serve!

Gastao just did one of the sickest dropshots ever! What a beauty! And next point he breaks! Vamos!

Great win Gastao! Now revenge tomorrow, the heavy lost of last week! Good couple of weeks in his 2nd home country! Top 120 with this win. top 115 if he wins tomorrow. Maybe he can go directly into wimbledon MD with a good clay season. He never qualify to a Slam MD directly. Could be his first.

Elias d Andreozzi 2-6 6-4 6-2

Only saw the last four games, but Andreozzi seemed to have run out of steam as he was very lackluster and didn't want to fight.

When I say potential, I mean in a career. That is not to say he will do better, but he trains at Bolleteri academy, has practiced with Federer at a young age, while Guido stayed in Argentina. That being said, he is equally talented and could have a shot at breaking top-50. Tomorrow, we will see. Guido was great in these last two matches, however in Itajai against Dutra, I was disappointed. We'll see what happens
