The shirt looks too tight on Gillou. Anyway, it looks nice.

Re: THE pictures thread

Think we need some new photos to get us thru the week.

I'm so bored without tennis this week, so I downloaded some old matches to watch, 1 is Gilles' final in Casablanca last year. After he won, he was sitting there looking around in his handsome self, so I made some screencaps. Not the best of quality, still good for your eyes , I hope.

Re: THE pictures thread

Very good for the eyes thank you!
Did you download it from the video thread here / my website or have you discovered a secret stash of Gillou matches somewhere?

Re: THE pictures thread

From your website, Les . You have the most comprehensive collections of Gilles Simon matches in the whole wild web out there . I've looked around but I've never found anything that is not already on your site. I can't thank you enough for that .


BTW, your photo links have issues, error pages, in case you haven't noticed that.

Re: THE pictures thread

Thanks for that, I hadn't noticed. The whole website was lost when the server blew up (!) so I had to reup it, I've obviously not put it back exactly the way it was! That's the weekend spoken for...

Re: THE pictures thread

Hi everyone,
I've come back from greeting Gilles @ Suvarnabhumi Airport for a while.
Since I can't go to see him at the court, I just hoped to get a glance of him here.
And it's worth everything. The real Gilles is totally sweet & friendly!

I met some of Gilles fans there and we stayed together in a group of five, waiting patiently.
One lovely friend brought a big "Gilles" signage with her and Gilles finally saw it.
He seemed quite shy and surprised to know that he has his own fans here.
They way he walked to us was really cute - touch his nose, rub his arm & smile along the way.
He said hello and talked to us while signing and he's so kind signing for everyone!
He even allowed us to take photos with him one by one before getting in a car ~so lovely~

And here are some photos I could manage to take. It's very difficult to focus on anything else
once his beautiful face & sweet smiles were just right in front of you ... shaky ... shaky ...

P.S. Thank you my new friends who were there with me having fun & happy moments together.
Have a great time cheering Gilles on court!


ALLEZ Gilles!!!

Re: THE pictures thread

Thanks a lot, very cute story!
But it's too bad you can't go to the tournament at all?

Sounds like a fun! How come you didn't invite me?
Thank you for sharing the story and the pictures na ka


October is such a bad month for tennis. So many exams. Would have loved to (try to) ask Gilles out for a dinner!

Re: THE pictures thread

Yes, Gilles seems really pleased and in a very good mood.
Hope he can play well and have no injury during the tournament.

Truc:
Sadly, I can't go to see him play because I'm now pregnant, yes, pregnanttttt.
Not die-hard enough to go to the arena/court which is too far from my house.

Nong Ome:
I MISSED the news! I saw Channel 3 camera there but didn't expect them to broadcast this fast.
Did you see a pregnant woman running around?
And SORRY for not inviting you because it's just my abrupt thought going to the airport.

By the way, good luck with your exam na ka. Take care!

Channel 9 will probably broadcast the news later Hmmmm, I was too focused on Gilles so I don't think I spot you there But sure will take a closer look on Ch 9 news later!
Oh, I was kidding. That's OK I'm glad you and all his fans had a great time

Kop khun ka and same to you na ka

PS. I think it was pretty die-hard to go to Suvarnabhumi Airport! What a dedicated fan
