Re: Allez Gillou! - *testing my luck for IW & Miami*
I scoreboard watched the match, a very boring thing to do I must say. So I did play by play to make it interesting:
Gael served first, got broken. 0-1. Gilles opened his serve game with a DF, but he held on without much trouble, 1-2. Montanes DF at bp to give the game back, 2-2. Gael serves again, he's down 2 bps, saved 2nd bp with an Ace, rallied back to hold serve, 3-2. David held, 3-3. Gilles serves, down 0-30 with his 2nd DF, down 2 bps, saved 1 bp but got broken anyway, 3-4. Montanes held, 3-5. Gael held to stay in the set, 4-5. David held again, so far he’s the only one that hasn’t been broken. Ferrer/Montanes took set 1 6-4 in 32 mins.
Gilles held serve to start set 2, an Ace to finish that game, 1-0. Montanes also held at 15, 1-1. Gael served, broken at 15, down 1-2 for the Frenchies. David held firm his serve again, Frenchies down 1-3. Gilles serves, broken at love. Frenchies down 1-4. Montanes held, Frenchies down 1-5. Gael serving to stay in match, serve his first DF but Ace a 2nd serve to hold, still down 2-5. David, who hasn’t been broken yet in the entire match, serves for the match. He held.
Spaniards beat Frenchies 6-4, 6-2 in just under an hour.
Well, that was quick. Hope they at least have a fun time on court.
Gilles' single match is scheduled on Stadium 3, first match tomorrow, start time 11am. Good luck Gillou.
