:woohoo::woohoo::woohoo:

Oh YEAAAH! He did it! For the first time ever, a portuguese male player it's in a 3rd round of a GS!

When his form was sucking badly he pull out this amazing run!!! I'm so fucking happy!!!

Now, of course his run will end (Tsonga in 3rd round), but at least he will have a televised court. Also he's in the 32 best players of the tournament!

OBRIGADO FRED! ESTAMOS CONTIGO! PARABÉNS!

Gil proved worthy against Granollers 6-3 4-6 6-4 6-3

First time portuguese man in GS Round 3. Took advantage of decent draw. Back in Top-100 and a boost of confidence. Go Gil!

I think the fact he came back to top 100 it's secondary. He is in the last 32. And this run came out of no where. He is playing pretty badly since his awesome QF in Monte Carlos last yeat. But this will definetely be a boos to his confidence, and a great achievement to the tennis of our country.

Of course he took advantage of the draw, but he still beat a top 40 and a top 30 to get there.

In my opinion, these so decent Wins at a GS and being back at Top-100 at the same time, are really important to set his mind that he is definitively a Top-100 player. He was on the line, new foreign coach, new racket, changing so much his game, as I saw in Chennai... It could be a decisive tourn-around for the worse, if nothing important happened until the end of February. But now, all new and fresh perspective. Go Gil, best portuguese player ever!

Great result for Frederico and Portuguese tennis.

Was anyone at the match? Marcel seemed to be pretty sick earlier this week apparently, I wonder if that contributed at all today.

Thanks a lot, Pirata! I also feel for Di, but Marcel will have more and better chances of going far in Slams and Gil won't, so this match was more important to him.

That photo was shocking. Running on it must have been excruciating.
