A day after his defeat to Juan Martin del Potro in Basel, Federer looked cool and relaxed, joking with Michael Llodra.

And the first boos of this Bercy 2013 go to…Ernests Gulbis, who as usual acts like a spoiled brat.
7-6 7-6 win for Fernando Verdasco whose best results this year are a final in Bastad and the quarter-finals at Wimbledon.

Fernando playing with a guy from the public after his victory:

First match on Center Court on day 1: Lopez-Tomic, a nice opposition of playing styles between Lopez, the left-handed serve and volley player and Tomic the counter-attacker.

This match could have gone either way but at the end the player who produced more game (and some nifty volleys too) won: Feliciano Lopez outlasted Bernard Tomic 6-4 6-7 (4-7) 7-6 (7-1).

David Ferrer captures the first Masters 1000 of his career after 3 defeats in finale (Rome 2010, Monte Carlo and Shanghai 2011 ) and ends Jerzy Janowicz magical run in Paris.

The season is far from over for the Spaniard, who will play in London next week and the Davis Cup finale against Czech Republic from 16 to 18 November.

For the title, Janowicz will square off against fourth seed David Ferrer who defeated wild card Michael Llodra in semis.
