I just didn't feel like playing the stress game today. I believed that Gilles would weather the storm today as he did against Volandri and he did. In fact, I'm really proud of the heart that Gilles once again showed battling his emotions over not being able to play his best coupled with the 105F heat and the tail end of his head cold.
Fact is, sometimes winning isn't pretty. Sometimes it can even be downright ugly, but at the end of the day, a win is a win, and Gilles is the one moving on to the 3rd round, not Levine. Allez Gilles!
