Isabelle,Gilles wont lose in 1st round 3 years in a row,3rd time is lucky
Andreas Beck d. Gilles Simon 7-5, 6-1 in 1 hour 20 minutes!
1set, broken in his fist service game!
suffering physically! with a cold! unhealthy!
the german was helping, with double faults, each time Simon was broken he broke back.
Beck was serving the set at 5-4 and was broken!
Gilles 1st serve totally deserted him!
not confortable at all, no power in grounstrokes, very poor display and the racquet went flying twice!
only 4 winners in the 1st set, 1st serve in 38%
2nd set! Beck breaks in 3rd game and it was the end for Gilles!
it was the worst match of his season by a mile! Pathetic!
no hitting the ball! 2 double faults and a double break for Beck! no rythm going
not confortable in everything! 1 serve in 39% 7 winners 29 ue.
a shout of "Stop!" from him at the beginning of the set!
he bites the red dust again of Monte Carlo again! his horrible run in the event continues!
he looked sick, with a cold! but no excuses! horrible display! Simon pathetic!
now he can ask for a wc to Barcelona, he has nothing to do in 12 days.
all the others musketeers are playing in Barcelona, including also Mathieu, Gicquel and Clement.
I guess his coach Tulasne didn't tell him he is the only french player to have won in Barcelona.
Gilles as bad and horrible as you can play.
if this is the start to the clay season and a pattern to the remaining clay events I can not wait for the hardcourt season.
Au revoir Gilles!!! it was depressing!!
Oh well, Gilles, there are more tournaments ahead!!! we are not going to lose hope!
There will be more chances!!
now let's see what he has to say! interesting
ALLEZ GILLES ALWAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
in the good times and bad times!!!
