An another man (after Benoit Paire) from my city: Avignon. Happy for Mathias after some issues in challengers since the beggining of his career (juste five 2R). Mathias comes through this week and beats other frenchies (Guez, Millot 7/5 in the third, W/O against Maximo Gonzalez in QF then Hemery and finally Munoz de la Nava). Bourgue is a little bit lucky seeing the facts of the week: very close vs Millot, injured Gonzalez, then a tired Hemery after three tights 3 sets matchs and finally a win over 33yrs old Munoz de la Nava who won Moscou last Sunday.
But this title will allow him to keep his place among the top 250. Mathias has 6 x 18 points of Futures Win to defend there until the end of July so 108 points. With this title, he makes 80.. Come on Mathias!
