Xavier reached the quarter final in Lyon after defeating Arnaud Clément 7-5, 3-6, 7-6 (6). He defeated Kucera in the first round.

He's playing against Bjorkman now.

You can do it Xavier! <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

Bjorkman should be a piece of cake. <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0"> Knowing Xavier, he'll thus probably lose <IMG SRC="smilies/redface.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

Wow, Xavier is a special guy... one time he plays terrible, the other time he's kicking asses.. Wish he could play on the same high level all year.

They are still showing Ljubicic vs Gaudio <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0">
Third set just started there.

I hope they will still show Xavier-Jonas.

Ljubicic-Gaudio is over (I didn't see who won)

Now they are showing Haas-Ulihrach <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0"> (Wenen)

So I guess we won't get to see Xavier <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0">

Xavier won the first set 6-1 and is now leading 3-1 in the second.

He's playing extremely well. There's not a lot Bjorkman can do.

He just needs to stay concentrated now.

Xavier holds easily 4-1.

Jonas retires. <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0"> He had already asked for treatment earlier.

Xavier wins 6-1, 4-1 (ret.)

Tomorrow semi final live at 3pm.

Congrats Xavier!! <IMG SRC="smilies/bounce.gif" border="0">
He really played an excellent match! Good luck in your semi-final and go for that title!
I hope that if he plays El Aynaoui he can get revenge for his and Christophes loss in the Daviscup against him!! I really didn't like his attitude in his match against Christophe, he was really annoying. <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0"> (and I think most people in the crowd thought that with me while we were watching that match.)
Keep up the good work, Xavier! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Wow, what a nice performance..

I just checked the results of Lyon, and the match Ferrero- El Aynaoui hasn't been played yet. I'm afraid it will be Ferrero... and he's good. But a good Xavier might win <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

COME ON XAVIER!!!
