I actually feel that Gael and Jo may be under more pressure from the French press for RG than Gilles. But,even the most optimistic French fan/journalist will not be seeing any of those 3 as a favourite to WIN,more as a fancied semi-finalist
Only if one or all of the top 3 Frenchmen lose before the 4th round could I see any kind of quite fierce negative writing from the French press. All 3 of them will be under equal spotlight from the French media I think,come RG time.
The key thing is for Gilles not to put pressure upon himself,which I don't see him doing.
This is not how I see the French players performing at RG,rather more as I think the French press may see things going.
Obviously I hope Gilles goes far,and all of the French do well.
