Marco is in the finals! He beat Chardy in the QF and Benneteau in the SF. He's played well but mostly, he's got his fighting spirit still there as always. He plays Zeballos in the final. Winning this event would put him one good tournament from the top 100 so it's very important for him, and important for the event so a Frenchman can take the title. Let's hope he can do it.

Marc won Bordeaux 6-2 6-4 over Zeballos He played very inspired and aggressive tennis. He was down 0-40 at *5-4 but came back by hitting big serves and winners. This is a great week for him right before RG qualifying, should give him plenty of positive energy going forward.

I always forget that he's 34 :eek But age is nothing but a number in his case

He's been injured so much also that it's sort of like he has less wear on his body than most 34 year old's would have. More than anything, he still has the passion and love for the game that's needed to compete. Hopefully he qualifies for the French but if he doesn't, grass is coming up and that's a good surface for him. Things are starting to look much better for Marc career-wise.

Amazing fight from Marco. Hopefully he beats Rosol again, this would be a great 3 wins for him over good players. And yes, top 100 is getting closer and closer. He has a good chance to make the US Open direct.

He plays Jack Sock in US first round very winnable for him an article from today

US Open/ Le Briochin est revenu dans le Top 100 mondial. Marc Gicquel: de retour parmi les grands
30 août 2011

Après plus d'un an de galère qui l'avait relégué très loin dans le classement mondial, Marc Gicquel (34 ans) est de retour dans le Top 100. Ce qui a permis au Briochin de décrocher le dernier billet d'accès direct pour le premier tour de l'US Open.


«J'ai été patient. J'ai beaucoup travaillé pour revenir dans les cent meilleurs mondiaux. Maintenant, je veux y rester.» Et ce n'est peut-être pas un hasard si c'est à l'US Open que Marc Gicquel (97emondial), à 34 ans, effectue son retour parmi les grands «J'aime beaucoup la surface, l'ambiance qu'il règne dans le stade, ainsi que le climat».

«J'ai dû m'accrocher»

Il y a tout juste cinq ans, le Briochin connaissait d'ailleurs dans la «Big Apple» son meilleur résultat en Grand Chelem: une défaite en huitièmes de finale (3-6, 6-7, 3-6) face à un Federer au faîte de sa gloire. Le Breton était alors 79emondial. Il s'installa ensuite tranquillement parmi les 50 meilleurs mondiaux (et fut même 37een septembre2008). A l'orée 2010, il visait même un premier titre ATP... Avant cette déchirure à la cuisse qui plomba sa saison. Et une belle dégringolade dans le classement (199e, début 2011). A 33 ans, le Briochin devait repasser par les affres du circuit secondaire. Dans les travées bretonnes, certains imaginaient déjà le numéro un breton se diriger inexorablement vers la retraite. C'était bien mal connaître la détermination et la ténacité du Briochin. «J'ai dû m'accrocher, retourner jouer deux Future qui m'ont fait du bien au niveau confiance.»

Le déclic contre Rosol

Et puis, enfin, au printemps, le déclic a eu lieu à Bordeaux. Mené 5-0 dans la troisième manche de son premier tour face à Lukas Rosol (65emondial), Marc Gicquel sauva deux balles de match pour l'emporter... puis remporter le Challenger. Le Briochin était relancé. «Ça m'a fait remonter au classement et donné beaucoup de confiance. Ma collaboration avec Thierry Ascione m'a beaucoup apporté. Il a su me pousser et a cru en moi». Quelques tournois plus tard, le revoici dans le Top 100, avec, en poche, le dernier des 96 billets permettant l'accès direct dans le tableau final de l'US Open. Et il a hérité d'un premier tour des plus jouables: l'Américain Jack Sock (555e à l'ATP), quand même vainqueur de l'édition juniors l'an passé. «Un jeune joueur talentueux dont je vais beaucoup me méfier.» Tout en lorgnant certainement au tour suivant un possible nouveau combat face à Roddick.

What happened to Marco? He lost in a match he shouldn't have v Sock, and now he's withdrawn from a few events. Another injury?

He has a lot of points to defend in October, so he really needs some results this month as a buffer. Hopefully it's nothing serious, and he's fine for Metz.

Wrist, that's potentially serious. Too bad it affected him during the USO, that was a great opportunity for him. Yes, he has points to defend during the indoor season but this is where he plays his best, so I'm hopeful, he should be fresh. Just needs to regain his rhythm.

Gonna lose points from Mons, but it's Rennes that he absolutely must be ready to play, or he's going to find it tough to finish top 100 this year. Hope he's ready to go for the French events.
