Re: Indoor season 2008

He already said before the match that the idea was to enjoy his matches there (I posted the video in the livescoring thread yesterday). Completely different than in Bucharest - "I'm here to defend my title", etc. And he always is very honest about his goals.
I buy it when he says it's not a big deal for him. But he's certainly disappointed by his performance (he must have been quite crap during the 3rd set), he does look too in the video.

(He laughes at more than one comment. The Masters Cup question and then a few times again during the part about Jo. )

Re: Indoor season 2008

They lost in doubles too, but Jérémy was the one serving for the 2nd set when Ancic/Ljubo broke back.
That's the only game I followed, so that's the only comment I can make about the match.

Come on Gilles, I saw you in person in Monte Carlo, which was outright embarassing, I don't want to see you like that in Vienna, otherwise I start doubting why some people develop a soft spot for you.

Re: Indoor season 2008

Hmm, now people say he's playing Schwank...
I saw Schwank yesterday against Sexy and I wasn't expecting him to play so well on that surface, it wouldn't be as easy as it looks.

I hope so.

Schwank didn't do too bad this past week. But he doesn't have a game that gets better indoors like Nico's, so Gilles can do it.

Re: Indoor season 2008

Yes, Schwank isn't a bye at all like I might have thought one week ago (stretching it a bit), but his game should suit Gilles. He has been an Argie killer this year except for the Delpo match at the USO, so let's hope he will keep up the good job.

His whole draw looks OK if he has "taken his bearings".
It's a big "if", though, he sounded quite disorientated in Metz. He was just coming out of hibernation too, but since he had really found the right balance on hc/clay lately and settled down his game nicely for this kind of surfaces, the transition might be tougher than usual for him, with the increased pressure to play up to his new rank.

ALLEZ GILLES!!!

Re: Indoor season 2008

I knew it: Gilles tomorrow on the small court against Schwank. At the same time Ljubicic/Melzer on center. Poor Gilles, he will be able to count the people watching his match. I will be one of them.

Re: Indoor season 2008

Simon-Schwank was never going to be on Center Court. A 2nd round against Moya maybe. It doesn't make a difference for us anyway, there doesn't seem to be any livestream.

But you should go and watch Jürgen's match too, it might be more your taste than Gillou. I hope the matches on Center Court will be veeeeeeery long so Gilles plays during Koubek-Robredo, I wouldn't feel bad about you having to miss Koubek for Poussin then.

Thanks a lot and have fun (it makes me a bit nervous you're going tomorrow , please show some good tennis, Gilles, don't embarrass us)!
