Anybody notices that Gilles's been doing a lot of extra activities at almost every tournaments lately? I start noticing it in Thailand Open 2011 when he was here. He went to the meet & greet twice! one organized by Adidas one by tournament (not complaining
). We have been blessed with lots of off-court photos (Gilles writing Chinese, Gilles on a boat, Gilles swimming with dolphins, or Gilles at the draw ceremony - I've lost count how many draws he picked already).
it hardly benefits him any how.
I just feel like he's a good soldier for the tournament sponsors and always doing these stuff with smile (while he's free from playing video games in his extra time).
Just an observation. As some may think he's not as popular as the other frenchies, I think he's doing fine in this regards (not shy away from promo gigs).
