Hi guys! Again a report from the train.
I'm an even bigger fan of Gilou after today.
I'm so sad I can't make it to his match tomorow, it's court 1.
I have to be in school, if I miss this class I'm not allowed to take the exam.
Anyway, back to the report. I saw Gilou practicing today and afterwards a girl wanted him to sign a ball, but she only had a regular pen, not one of those permanent markers. So Gilles put on a big smile and asked the 5 people around for it. I gave him mine and when he was done signing he walked towards me to give the marker back. Then I asked him for a picture of just him and he gave me this shy smile and said 'I don't like that...' I didn't really know what to say, cause I have never seen a player who ever said that.
So then he said: ok, just one... But at the same time a woman also standing there offered to take a pic of us together and he smiled at me again and replied 'Yeah, I prefer that!'. The picture didn't turn out that great, cause it is pretty dark next to the training courts, so we look like we're standing in the shadow.
But I can look at it and remember this moment. He was just soooooooo adorable.
Didn't see Carine and Timothée this time, but Gilles wasn't in a hurry today like in the weekend when he wanted to get back to the hotel.
Teem, don't worry, I'm on my way home and I will have time in the next few days to upload pics before I go to Marseille.
And while writing this I'm contemplating if I might say I'm ill tomorrow.
I mean, it's Gilou on court 1!!! It's such a small court, if he climbs the ranking again, he'll be back on center court next year. On court 1 I can see him play 2 meters away from me...
