"Not a huge serve" and no netgame, his match against Richard last year was painful!
TBH, I'm always surprised when the guys choose to play in Halle because the courts there are dreadful after 2 days whereas they still look beautiful in London even for the final. It isn't a big issue for Gilles since he has never won a match in Halle
, but I'm sure London is a better choice if he wants to have a decent grass season this year.
Last year he played Warsaw on clay during the week of Halle-Queen's.
