By the way, i'm contemplating going to the qualifying tomorrow. If I do, i'll try to see if I can find Gilles practising somewhere.

Re: The LUCKY Eastbourne and Wimbledon Grass Season comeback thread

I am soooo happy he got a WC! And with the state of the entry list he could do really well. *fingers crossed*

Praying that he's finally back 100% healthy. I saw him play in Miami and it was so depressing

Allez, Gilles!

I don't mind seeing that, kinda fun
But I think he at least got a haircut in between showing up at the 2nd Mousquetaires epi and the RG commentary booth, he even shaved .

Thanks Jase! Watch out though because afterward you may end up thinking he's a better catch than Tomas

Re: The LUCKY Eastbourne and Wimbledon Grass Season comeback thread

gilles has a very nice draw

evgeny korolev in the first round, the guy who hasnt even won a match in forever

a qualifier in the 2nd round

most likely llodra in the quarter final

so i could definately see atleast a quarterfinal appearance here

if he gets past llodra feliciano lopez most likely awaits in the semis
