Re: Winter/Spring HC season 2011

Thanks Kezzi, for another sweet report. I hope you get to see him play and without risking your school work.

So Court 1, no stream then. I would love to see Paire too . On Ayane's blog, someone posted L'Equipe said Gilles' match was supposed to be on monday, but because he has that stiff neck, they moved the match to wed for him. Nice of them.

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 Timothιe 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...

if it's not televised then you won't get caught provided they don't read your posts here but don't flunk exams not even Gilles is worth that!!

Re: Winter/Spring HC season 2011

Well, I have resits too at the same time, so I know I won't study a lot anyway for this one. Decisions, decisions, pfff.
I emailed the course coordinator and hope for an answer in the morning.

Re: Winter/Spring HC season 2011

Thanks and you're welcome!

I've restrained myself and went to school... The day is too long to miss, but I'm still sad I can't see Gilles play so close. Will stalk Richard next year to get him on court 1 again. It helped with the scoreboard at Bennet's first quali match. I was watching live scores on my phone, cause the scoreboard was mia. Then I saw Richard and remembered he has twitter. I tweeted him and in the last set, the scoreboard showed up.

Re: Winter/Spring HC season 2011

Well Gilles lost the first set 6-2 but made up for by winning the second 6-2. Not sure what happened there in the first poor first serve percentage at 45% and didn't convert any of the 4 BPs. Second set 80% first serve and converted the the two BPs to win 6-2

3rd set Gilles has BP on Paries first game...Paire holds.

Gilles breaks back needs to hold. I hope Thimothee works as a good luck charm like he did Metz fingers crossed

Re: Winter/Spring HC season 2011

Gilles is out. 6-2, 2-6, 6-3. Maybe his neck was troubling him? This sucks.
