good point, you're right...but M.Pierce when became injuried was more then 30 yo, already quite old to be MODERN tennis player

btw hope for her serenity and satisfied life as well

Re: News thread

Simon admitted both himself and Cornet would be relying on wins in their singles matches in order to reach the final. “We are not counting on the doubles” he said with a laugh.

Wise guys!

Thanks Di for the article. :]

Re: News thread

I wouldn't be surprised if this will be Gilles' first ever mixed double match. Knowing he's not that good in men doubles (polite understatement), I kind of expect some distaster. It would be fun though to see how women players will deal with his serve, especially his second serve. I guess most of them already faced stronger serves on their tour Hope his good humor will show again. ^^

Time to look for a streaming..

Am I right in thinking Gillou's match starts 12 hours from now?
Better check seeing as I'm notoriously bad at time differences

Re: News thread

Gilles played mixed doubles with Camille Pin in Roland-Garros, they even aced their way into the 2nd round!

The title they picked for the article ("Simon to hunt down big three") made me cringe, he doesn't say that, he clearly states in the article they're out of reach for him as long as he doesn't do better in Slams and it's not his goal for now. He said the same thing about 10 times in French lately, so I'm pretty sure that's not what he meant.

Another article from the tournament website, maybe it was already posted, I haven't read all the threads:
"Giant-Killing Simon Wants Hopman Crown"

Probably the only heat he'll catch is from the press since hopefully the rest of us are on to their game and realize like Fran pointed out, that he didn't say that or mean that at all! Silly press
