Day 4 Recap
Men's singles motored on this first round without many highlighted matches for day four.
One of the day's more interesting contests came when Frenchman Marc Gicquel beat countryman Michael Llodra 6-4, 7-6 (4).
Despite these two hailing from the same country, this was only their second head-to-head showdown on the ATP circuit, and the first in five yer.
This match was closer than the score suggested. Gicquel was just far better with his break opportunities. He went 2-of-5 while Llodra converted just one of his eight opportunities.
Up next for Gicquel is another Frenchman in Gilles Simon.
Meanwhile, Uzbekistan's Denis Istomin 6-4, 7-5 over Marsel Ihan of Turkey was solid, but he will be facing a stiff step up in competition from qualifier Ihan to his second-round opponent, fourth-seeded Dmitry Tursunov from Russia.
