Thanks a lot for passing by, Benoît, it's very appreciated!
Yeah, it was a bit weird yesterday, Gaëlou making it to his first GS quarter, it should have felt
- and actually, it was rather painful because of all the shit he was getting for his performance (not just on GM, I wouldn't care so much about it, but it was the same stuff in most French articles too).
You've explained better than I could why he also deserves credit for this match.
Anyway, today's reactions seem more positive and do stress his potential, in Libé, in L'Equipe...
(I know it isn't pretty to watch a guy still trying to sort out his game in the middle of a Grand Slam, I wish he would have done that before too! But it's not like he used to play beautiful tennis in the past and is suddenly playing poorly since his comeback, he played some ugly matches too against Murray or Norman 2 years ago, I don't completely get yesterday's outburst of horrified reactions.)
