Resignment isn't the solution, and certainly not an option of mine. I can't deny the facts. He's lost his 5th match in a row, yes. But I haven't seen that match. Maybe Chucho has really played a great match and there was nothing Gaston could do today. Maybe if they had played tomorrow, the outcome would have been totally different.
Don't lose hope Vale. A tiebreak in the 1st set helps me believe it has been a great fight.
