Re: Fall tournaments 2009


Really impressed by the way he closed it out!
The rest was very "Gaël style". I don't expect him to play beautiful tennis in this tournament, I'm just thrilled by his effort because I'm sure he's very tired.

Re: Fall tournaments 2009

He played one in Rome against Nadal aaaaaages ago. It was a beatdown - but it happens even to the very best against Nadal on clay.
