I wonder any gas left in the tank for Grosjean in the doubles. Plus he gets a WC into Bercy next week.

surely thats the first time someone has won a title at ATP level by beating 5 people from the same country

Santoro, Tsonga, Gicquel, Benneteau, Cadart.

Bit of a mickey mouse title if you ask me :eek:

Great forehand to win the title. He served very well and Gicquel fails again in Lyon.

I won't miss the commentators on TLM ...
In 20 seconds they told " there were 8 french out of 14 players in 1/8 and finally the French number 2 won the tournament "

Grosjean wins the battle between him and the rest of France to take Lyon. Well deserved and shocking really that it is just a fourth title.

Good win for the french inside out fh player. :) Hopefully this will help him to climb up the ranking and gain a more fitting ranking (top 20-30 at least).

Congrats, Grosjean!! :yippee:
The FH pass on the 3rd MP was just fab!
And he looked so happy when he won.
It was a good final. Both guys fought hard till the end.

Allez Grosjean! Tres formidable! :cool:

"I lost the feeling to win a tournament in 5 years so I'm really happy to win today especially as it's in France", Grosjean said. "I remember my first time here 10 years ago so I just hope that I won't have to wait another 5 more years to win because I don't think in 5 years I will play."

Gicquel's behaviour was really poor. He acted like a spoilt child when close calls didn't go his way and he threw hs towel at umpire Grilloti's chair at the end knowing full well the guy had just umpired his final match after 23 years.

"He (the umpire) did some mistakes today, but it was his last match today. What can I say? It is difficult to be on the chair."

Boo!
