Two weeks after his birth, Timothy
was already on the circuit, since we went to
Metz, where Gilles has become! I remember
we had a great hotel room but

consider us. And we are trying to
be added. In March, I followed Acapulco
Indian Wells and Miami, because it was a
months we had not seen and that if we do
not see him this time, we do not see
not before an eternity. Timothy, in the long

either. Tournament, trying if possible
to have a large room or two
rooms for Gilles
can recover from jetlag. A
Indian Wells this year, the room was very
large but not very well suited. Timothy
slept in a large closet! eve
match, it has happened to me to offer
Gilles going to sleep with Thierry (Tulasne
coach) for it to rest.
During periods when we are separated, we
seen every day by video, if the offset
permits. It's part of the ritual end
day, there is a bath, a meal, and then say
Dad goodnight before going to bed.
Whenever Gilles returned from a tournament
it is Timothé changed, so it is a little
frustrated I think. He missed his first steps,
it was during the Asian tour in autumn
last year.
When Gilles is at home in Switzerland, was
a small quiet family life without tennis,
no call. Gilles becomes a dad
hen he cares much, he learns to
"Play" tennis racket with its small.
