Gicquel played a lot of miracle shots in the tie break especially the one saving the match point.

Amazing :worship:

Gicquel saved two match points at 6-4 in the tiebreak. Great fight from him and he surprisingly defends his final here from a year ago.

That had to be shot of the day. Incredible. Gicquel was in trance after that. Me too :D

Shaky match from Marc, he was playing much better in the first rounds, Falla looked actually like the better player in the 3rd set (I didn't see the rest). I was nicely surprised by him this week.
But what a fight of Marc in the TB. :yeah: That must feel incredible to save MP that way at your home event.

Agreed, Falla was the better player in the 3rd set but you have to give it to Gicquel's determination.

Falla :hug:

"It was a great tournament for me", a dejected Falla said. "I was one ball away from the final; it's a shame, but nothing I could do. He made a great point at 6-4, the match point. I went for the point, I was looking for the match. I have to look forward because it was a big tournament for me. I am back in the top 100 so that's a positive thing."

Poor Falla. You have feel for the guy, so close to his 1st ATP final.

I have a feeling Gicquel will be denied again today; Grosjean is determined to get his revenge for losing to him last year, plus he wants to get his first title in over 2 years.

Actually Grosjean hasn't won since St.Petersburg in 2002 so this may be his last chance to grab some silverware. He starts slight favourite today.
