Got to thank a friend who was at the match for the updates, too much funny.

DGT up a break in the 3rd loses serve easily, then serves for the set at *5-4 in the 4th. Has 5 set points stuffs them up, so GGL hits a massive mishit and DGT takes the 4th screaming vamos so loud the birds were scared.

Both trade breaks in the 5th set, then DGT loses serve at *5-5 and then GGL fails to serve it out but DGT took 4 break points to get it done.

At *2-2 in the 5th set TB Gimeno-Traver throwing up all over the court. Cleaning squad was on then GGL got the cash.

Daniel can say goodbye to top 100, probably for the rest of the season. Couldn't beat a dude who had an appendicitis attack just a few weeks ago.

Guy throws up on court sick and you're mouthing him off, use your brains.

I'm happy DGT fought, but this should have been a straights sets win. GGL wasn't even sure he was going to play here. He fought but he lost and it's a very damaging loss for his career. He was the one who had more openings and could not take advantage of them.

There is a food poisoning bug going around Söderling, Niland, Venus Williams. The doctor came on the court at the 5th set TB. You weren't at the match so how can you say it should be straight sets and it wasn't streamed.

Personally I would never comment on a match that was played on a non-televised court. What should or should have happened, match statistics etc... its only part of the story

GGL is coming off an APPENDICITIS ATTACK. So coming into this match, DGT should have expected a weak GGL and one that was extremely vulnerable. Then to get to 5 sets and be outlasted by a guy who had a medical emergency literally a few weeks prior is............ironic to say the least. DGT should have outplayed and beaten GGL in the state he's in unless GGL has started feeling significantly better within the next couple of days and the fact is, he had the chances, and didn't take them.

Ultimately Daniel needed this win desperately and much more than GGL, he failed, fought hard and couldn't get the job done. Too bad.

It doesn't take weeks to recover from appendicitis these days it's not the 70s anymore at least GGL wasn't suffering from food poisoning causing him to throw up on court, mix in feeling crap with heat. DGT had his chances, but you weren't at the match and ibreak4coffee is right.
