Gilles Elseneer

i saw him play gasquet at wimbledon 2005 and was very impressed.
the other year i thought he was pushing for the top 100 and now he seems to have vanished? anyone know what he is doing?

Gilles had a terrible year with loads of injuries and sicknesses. A few months ago Gilles told in an interview that he still has the ambition to get back into the top 100, but unfortunately he isn't on the entry list for any of the tournaments in 2007 so far.

And what's more: he has an awful lot of points to defend in january and february: 107 (!) and he only has 144 at the moment.

Let's hope he still can come back, cause he really has got some game. And with his serve he can beat almost everyone at grass.

Re: Gilles Elseneer

Gilles finally made his comeback

He reached the 2nd round of the ITF tournament in Sunderland. It's not a very big event, but you have to start somewhere.

I hope he will climb the rankings sometime soom, because he really has the ability to rank in the top 100.

Good luck Gilles !!!

Re: Gilles Elseneer

Wauw, Gilles really made an impressive start to the season after a year full of injuries

In Sunderland, he reached the semifinals without dropping a single set

He will now play Gary Lugassy (FRA-3)

Good luck to you Gilles !!!
