I’m a bit confused whether we agree on having a new thread now or later
. But since Gilles is already in Australia, I think technically, when he steps on court and plays tennis next week, his season will start. So we need a thread to discuss his haircut
, his outfit, his tan, his form, and occasionally his tennis
. So let the fun begins.
While we are still debating whether or not he should actually resume his season so quickly without having his injury completely heal, it seems he has already made up his mind to play the Australian Open. He can only be stopped if the pain returns, but we hope that won’t happen. So here’s hoping that he plays thru the whole Australian season without any problem, and gets the Simon Slam rolling.
First stop, Adelaide Exho, Jan 12-14.
The young guns play single against each other, and then team up with the veteran to play double. So he will have to play what, 6 matches total in 3 days? Wow, quite a lot, hope his knee can handle. The young guys in this exho are Sexy, Ginepri, Tomic & Gilles. Sexy is in top form
, Robby beat Toad this week
(if it means anything), Tomic is still fighting with Rocky
which doesn't help his tennis
. I hope Gilles will have a good warmup next week to prepare for AO.
Sorry Les, I try to use the thread name you suggested, but it’s a bit too long to fit. But like you said, we can change it. I’ll see if we need to fine tune the name as the week progress. Maybe if Gilles changes his mind and decides to sit out AO afterall, we’ll have to change the thread name to “AO no more, season to be resumed in March”. We'll see.
