What a hell of a way to finish a season. Gil lost to his friend and my other portuguese fav, Gastao Elias, after holding two MP. But still, Gastao needed this points more, to secure Top 200 finish. What an amazing year for Gastao, appart from injuries, shitty year for Gil, only one very good tournament at Monte Carlo. But secured Aussie Open direct acceptance. And Gastao can play Aussie Open Q, if he chooses to. See you next year, Gil! Go Gastao!

Pepê just did it! Won against Julio Silva. Important, it was his beast this year, took him down at a CH, at the beggining of Gastao's downfall and injury, and then at two finals. So, now into the final of Buenos Aires, in great form, and two good CH until the end of the season. Not impossible to finish the season in Top 150, even with two and a half months injured... Never forget he was around 750th a year ago. Go Pepê!

Great start of season. Final of São Paulo CH, after beating Zeballos and in-form Del Bonis. Top-100 stuff? We'll see in a few months. Go Pepe!

Gastao did well in Sao Paulo CH final, but in the end lost the two breakers. Great first serve, lots of aces, but lacks consistency (low percentage). Needs something more in that forehand to be a safe top-100 player. But I think that it's really possible to get there with this level of play. Go Pepe!

Pepe is defending 55 points this week, and he needs to secure at least QF at the strong DallasCH to retain his Top-200 spot. He then basically defends nothing till September, so a lot of time to insist on this difficult transition to ATP level to see if he can handle it. Difficult February, lots of first round losses in close matches at ATP250 Qualies in South America. Curious to see how he does today against Mischa Zverev, important test. Go Pepe!

Maybe he should have focused on Challengers this year to pick up experience and points that would stabilize him around 100th. He has nothing to defend in the following months due to his injury in 2011, so he has a good chance to climb up the rankings, but without forgetting that he's still very young and has still much to learn...

Enjoy watching Gastao, he's got flair, but he's willing to scrap when he needs to.

Some frustrating matches this year though like the Kavcic one in Florianapolis, he really should have taken that.

Pepe just won in Blumenau. Decent match today. although not many winners, but decent first and second serve. Only third time this year he won two matches in Main Draw. Now, a real test against Capdeville (took Gastão down at Miami Q). Hope he makes it, he´ll be back at Top-200 if he does so, and he'll definitively earn his WC at Estoril.
Go Pepe!

Gastão is doing really well in Caltanissetta CH this week. God wins over Lorenzi and Junqueira, now! I really hope (and expect) that he makes the Final here. Needs the points, needs the boost of confidence! He has all the conditions to secure a good second half of the season, to at least create to himself a strong Top-150 spot and attack Top-100. It's all on his mind, he clearly has the weapons. Go Pepe!

Great week for Gastao. Robredo was too much for him, but still a CH Final is great, he'll be around 160th next week. Hope he gets back to ATP Qualies after Wimbledon, and to see him getting to Top150 quickly, and staying there at the end of the season.

Great week for Gastão, he'll be defending nothing for the next months so if he does well he can climb up to 100-120. Go Gastão!!

I expected more from Elias at this time of season. Yesterday he lost to Mektic, ranked below 300.

Semi-finals in Tampere, not bad. Top-150 for the first time in his career.
