Was the match so bad?
It was an OK match, not as good as the one vs Tsonga. However, this match (and a couple of previous ones where he's lost very tight match) showed that Grigor improved in fighting, not giving up easily.
It was error-fest from both players with some flashy points (from both Grigor and Gael). His serves, BH & volleys were better from his previous matches but again not to the level that we know he can be.
With Gael on the other side of the net, Grigor looked slow by 1/2 step.
Just my thought. Comments are welcomed.
