Re: Clay season 2012, "Take Two" most definitely

I think Gilles may finally be starting to get it that he can't play the way he usually does against bigger and harder hitting players who generate the pace for him. He's going to have to create his own pace, which he hates to do most of the time, and be on or just behind the baseline ready to attack. He can't rally shot for shot with Ferrer because he can do that all day and never miss. He's a grinder. It's his forte. Gilles is going to have to flatten out his groundies and be more willing to take risks or else he's just going to get out pushed.
