Thursday ATP Results: Bastad, Stuttgart

Posted by gauloises1 on July 16, 2009

Some tough matches in Bastad today. Verdasco survived a match point in a three-set victory over Daniel “lethal like” Koellerer and local wildcard Andreas Vinciguerra came back from the brink of defeat to subdue Canas. Things were much simpler for Melzer and Pico, who had a typically bizarre scoreline but still managed to put out Crivoi in straight sets.

Sadly Gilles’ woes continued, losing to Zverev (who also beat him in Rome). And Lukas Kubot is questing for braaaaaaaaaaaaains again. He beat PEHK 62 64.

    Sucks to be Gilles, but at least Pico won. And got a bagel out of the deal.

    Gilles better get his act together. His slump was rather inconsequential at the beginning of the year but now he has to start defending his points from last year otherwise it’ll be bye-bye top ten for him.
