Gilles met up with the Davis Cup team on sat and the team will travel to Lyon together on sunday, according to this http://www.rmc.fr/editorial/125963/l...roland-garros/
And if I didn't misunderstand this, his name got mentioned for WC in Metz? http://www.republicain-lorrain.fr/fr...-et-Parra.html
Since he's playing DC next week, it almost makes sense then to go to Metz after Lyon. He's at 41, he needs to be at 38 (or 37 if Haas entered with protected ranking) to make direct Entry of Bercy, Metz the last tourney he can gain positions for Bercy entry, but he will need to make final to gain pt. And if he's not playing Bangkok, then he needs to gain a lot of pts to avoid dropping out off top 50 after Bangkok... Metz WCs to be announce next thurs if anyone's interested. Too bad he's in such a struggle in ranking, so much is at stake, he just can't afford to take any time off to spend with his family, but I'm sure they will understand and be there for him.
No Metz, it seems, false alarm, my bad.
Gilles' going to Metz afterall. He got a WC.
