Thanks (merci ) Soulage, very interesting I didn't know the start of his carreer and about his future plans.

yes he plays in Lille and is in the quarterfinals against De Schepper, a tough QF, as De Schepper has had a very good start of the year.

it may be the key match of the week

Other former top-100 Odesnik and Levine also play futures in America this week although they didn't reach top-50 like Marc Gicquel.

He won Lille, let's hope he can make it back to the top100.

Futures is maybe a good way to find confidence he's playing another french future this week in Poitiers. As it's in france it's not a problem for him but i hope he will find soon the upper level. In Poitiers Future this week you have Gicquel, Haider-Maurer and Ouanna. Anyway Marco is the big favorite to win it.

Quote:
Tout juste aura-t-il fallu attendre le fameux septième jeu pour voir le Breton s'emparer de la mise en jeu, jusque-là solide, de l'espoir Jonathan Eysseric.

Impérial de bout en bout, Marc Gicquel n'a plus jamais laissé à son adversaire la moindre occasion d'espérer quoi que ce soit. En deux petites manches et à peine une heure, l'affaire était pliée (6-3, 6-2).

« J'ai bien géré ma semaine, se réjouissait-il, après coup. J'ai eu des matchs qui auraient pu être compliqués contre des gens comme De Schepper, Renavand ou là face à Jonathan mais j'ai été solide, complet dans tous les domaines. Le bilan est vraiment très positif.

» Venu dans le Nord pour relancer, à bientôt 34 ans, sa carrière après une année perturbée par les blessures, Marc Gicquel a fait le plein de confiance et a démontré qu'il n'avait pas été trente-septième joueur mondial en 2009 par hasard. Sous les yeux de son nouvel entraîneur, Thierry Ascione, il a pu retirer beaucoup d'enseignements intéressants de sa semaine lilloise.

« Si je continue à jouer de cette façon, il n'y a pas de raisons que ça se passe mal, estimait-il. J'étais venu pour gagner des matchs et des points ATP. Contrat rempli. » Bien qu'habitué à évoluer dans des tournois plus prestigieux et ayant déjà remporté des succès plus significatifs dans sa carrière, le Breton était visiblement très heureux de triompher dans le Nord. « Quel que soit le niveau du tournoi, je suis toujours content de gagner. Je suis un compétiteur avant tout, insista-t-il. D'ailleurs, j'étais déçu de perdre la finale du double samedi et ça aurait été la même chose si j'avais été éliminé rapidement dans le tournoi de simple. Ce qui aurait pu arriver car on n'est jamais à l'abri. Il y avait quand même dans le tableau plusieurs gars qui ont déjà battu des top 100 par le passé. » Plus que satisfait de la qualité de l'organisation et convaincu que cet Open de Lille mérite de grandir et de passer au moins au niveau challenger dans les années à venir, Marc Gicquel a, tout de même, admis qu'il espérait bien ne pas revenir défendre sa couronne l'an prochain : « Si je suis là en 2012, c'est que je n'aurais pas progressé au niveau du classement, que je serais toujours à peu près dans les mêmes eaux et que je n'aurais donc pas atteint mes objectifs. » Un cas de figure difficile à imaginer quand on connaît le bonhomme et sa véritable valeur. Mais avant de revenir sur le devant de la scène et de pouvoir batailler avec des rivaux de sa dimension dans les grands tournois, Marc Gicquel devra continuer à batailler encore quelques mois dans l'anonymat des « Future » et des « challenger » voire dans les qualifications des Grand Prix. Sa route le mènera, cette semaine, vers Poitiers. Ses futurs adversaires peuvent déjà commencer à trembler.

Great job winning both futures, Marc! That's over 50 points gained in 2 weeks! Are these 15K + hospitality or just regular 15K's? If they are 15K+H that would be like 70 points. In any case, he should gain 20+ positions in the rankings. This is a great start to hopefully good performances in challengers and a top 100 position.

Thank you so much, you always have the info on the Frenchies

Saturday, so only one more day to wait. I hope he gets a good draw, and can do some damage. With so little to defend these next months, US Open MD direct should be a goal for Marco.

Thierry said the goal was to enter again the top 60 before the end of his career. I found that quite crazy I mean he's 34 years old as all veterans guy his ranking at the end of the year could be decisiv to continu or not.
He's in Estoril QD and play a Tapei guy first.

That is definitely ambitious, but it's good that he set such a goal, because it means he's going to be extra motivated and work extra hard to achieve it. I can see top 80-110 consistently, I'd be surprised at top 60. He doesn't play a physical game so that helps him. Hopefully he plays one of these last 3 majors, if not all 3.

Marco won 7-5 in the third today over Yang from Taipei. Great serving stats. Now he plays a Spaniard Sergio Gutierrez-Ferrol in QR2.

Marc lost to ERV in the final round of Estoril and now plays in a challenger in Rome this upcoming week. He plays Alessio Di Mauro in R1. Hope he has a good result.

Marco lost 4-6 6-2 4-6 to Di Mauro. He got a WC into Bordeaux and plays Lukas Rosol in R1. He has a good draw so hopefully he can put together a good week in France.
