Here's audio of an interview Gilles did with a radio station before his exhibition in Hungary.

Re: The video thread

On my latest scourge of youtube searching for new Gilles Simon videos, which has become a lot more needlessly complicated thanks to youtube's stupid new search function but I digress, I found this neat little video of an interview he did before his exhibition in Buenos Aires back in Dec.

He is really personable in this video especially and best of all he sings a little Rolling Stones "Sympathy For the Devil" at the end so sweetly.

Once again I say "Carine, you are one lucky gal. You've scored the perfect man.

Be careful Gilles, he almost gets the car door taken out by a van when he's getting out of the car at the end of that video

I like his advice to the other players, you can tell he respects his parents because they didn't pressure him early with tennis.

He's 'telephonically autistic'.

Highlights from Benneteau SF in Rotterdam. The video quality is poor but it's longer than the other ones I've seen. I'm sad I missed the match, it seems like a great one from the highlights.

From Marseille:


If the Frenchies here can kindly translate, will be greatly appreciated.
Someone asks him to sing, and he sang . He better don't quit his day job though.

I don't think anybody asked him to sing. They just asked what he was currently listening to on his iPod and he said The Rolling Stones' "Sympathy For the Devil" and then he sang the opening line from the song again on his own. He really likes that song because if you look a few posts up to the one I posted of him in the car ride question segment, he says the same song and sings the opening line. So make a mental note everyone, Gilles is a man of wellness and taste

Q: Are you going to hire a coach anytime soon? If yes, who will it be?
GS: Yes, of couse I'll get a new coach unless I get injured and quit tennis next week. Whom I'm gonna choose, I don't know yet, have a few ideas but unfortunately and that makes me very sad but I can't tell right now.

Q: What's on repeat on your Ipod atm and can you sing it to us?
GS: Lately, the Stones "Sympathy for the devil" and now... *bip it never happened*

Q: What's the last Piano tune you've learnt?
GS: I suck at playing the Piano. The last tune I've worked on is a video game OST which is very dear to me but I'm sure nobody ever heard of. It's called "To Zanarkand" (Final Fantasy X).

Q: Your best pal on tour?
GS: Gael when I get the chance to meet him.


Le Poussin! Faithfully ignoring the haters since 1995.

Le Poulailler de Poussin! (Simontarded.)

Re: The video thread

Thanks for the translation. I wish I spoke and understood French. It's such a sexy language.

Surprised he would think nobody would know the videogame soundtrack. Surely he doesn't still think that gamers are a minority bunch.
