Re: The LUCKY Eastbourne and Wimbledon Grass Season comeback thread

Thanks for all the interview/article updates, Fran!

I'm so glad Gillou is back finally, really been missing him and the inner workings of his mind. Good luck tomorrow!

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?

Re: The LUCKY Eastbourne and Wimbledon Grass Season comeback thread

a real battle here in the 2nd

6-5 andrey leads

gilles had a chance to break for 5-4 at 15-40 on andrey's serve but full credit to andrey who held off both break points

kuznetsov takes the 2nd set 7-6(7-3)

and now gilles is double faulting all over the place

3 of his 7 have come in the 3rd set alone

Re: The LUCKY Eastbourne and Wimbledon Grass Season comeback thread

gilles in trouble in the 3rd set, falling into a pattern of fighting tooth and nail to hold serve while andrey holds relativley easyily

12 return points for andrey in the 3rd compared to 4 for gilles

Wish there's a stream to see what's going on. He must be getting really tired, or worse .

C'mon Gilles, just break him and get it over with.

Re: The LUCKY Eastbourne and Wimbledon Grass Season comeback thread

love hold with aces number 3 and 4 for andrey for 5-5

followed by love hold for gilles

i think the fact that he's been in troubl on every service game up to this point has got him fired up

tiebreaker time!

gilles has lost the last 2 he's played

KEEP IT UP, GILLES! So happy. I may go on Friday if he's on an outside court and still playing, but I don't think they use outside courts for semis.

Well done Gillou.

Llodra lost a set to Robert, there's still hope!

Er no, Llodra already won in 3 earlier on. I merely meant he doesn't seem to be in the best of shape.
