Good win for Gilles in the end. ERV is a tricky player, especially on grass. I saw some of the match yesterday and ERV was frustrating Gilles with some net rushes, slices and counter-punching, but as soon as Gilles found a rhythm he was the better player.

Wasn't ERV up in the final set? Anyway it couldn't have a different ending. Sela will be way tougher.

Sela to pull the upset next round, Gilles was far from convincing.

Glad he's into R2, not expecting much from him at the moment. Hopefully he can reach delpo

Thanks for the memories... Andy Roddick.

ERV played a good match, it's more about his level than Gilles not playing well.

Wouldn't be surprised at all if Dudi beats Simon, and make it 17 in a row...

Well done Gilles.
