Re: 2009 Summer Hardcourt Thread

One has to give some credit to Falla, though, not a bad showing. I doubt he will sustain it though, Gilles in 3.

Re: 2009 Summer Hardcourt Thread

I've never seen Falla before, but his game looks awfully similar to Gilles'.

Okay - time to regroup! Allez Gillou

I was watching this http://www.fromsport.com/video-55060.html, but not anymore, it's not working for me now. Probably better that way, maybe I won't tear my hair out so much.

Don't flame me for saying this guys but he is pushing today and I hate it. He is so much better than this.

Re: 2009 Summer Hardcourt Thread

1-0 up,Falla helped Gilles along a bit with a few silly errors. Time to show your class Gilles

Re: 2009 Summer Hardcourt Thread

If he gets his first serve percentage up from the 37% from last set, he should be fine.

I actually think that his counter-punching strategy is effective right now. Falla covers the court pretty well, Gilles isn't really on his game, so why not wait for Falla to make the error?

Gilles is smart and doesn't work any harder than need be But, seriously - it appears like it's really hot there. I haven't seen such a strong sweat pattern on him in a very long time.

Re: 2009 Summer Hardcourt Thread

If he can stay in rallies he will win but he needs to improve his serve and his backhand and quickly.

Re: 2009 Summer Hardcourt Thread

Yeah Alli,I was thinking about the heat and the sweat on him too. Shorten the points Gillou and make Falla do the running and sweating
