Just need a new thread for Feb and March...

His draw in Rotterdam:

1 1 SODERLING, Robin SWE
2 WC HAASE, Robin NED
3 KOHLSCHREIBER, Philipp GER
4 LU, Yen-Hsun TPE

5 GULBIS, Ernests LAT
6 DE BAKKER, Thiemo NED
7 GRANOLLERS, Marcel ESP
8 6 YOUZHNY, Mikhail RUS

9 3 FERRER, David ESP
10 NIEMINEN, Jarkko FIN
11 TROICKI, Viktor SRB
12 WC SCHOOREL, Thomas NED

13 CILIC, Marin CRO
14 QUALIFIER
15 WC HUTA GALUNG, Jesse NED
5 16 MELZER, Jurgen AUT
------------------
17 TSONGA, Jo-Wilfried FRA
18 8 QUALIFIER
19 DAVYDENKO, Nikolay RUS
20 LLODRA, Michael FRA

21 GOLUBEV, Andrey KAZ
22 QUALIFIER
23 GARCIA-LOPEZ, Guillermo ESP
24 4 BERDYCH, Tomas CZE

25 7 LJUBICIC, Ivan CRO
26 STAKHOVSKY, Sergiy UKR
27 QUALIFIER
28 SIMON, Gilles FRA

29 MAYER, Florian GER
30 LOPEZ, Feliciano ESP
31 BAGHDATIS, Marcos CYP
32 2 MURRAY, Andy GBR

Too close to Murray for my liking , and I never like first round facing qualifier...but like I always said, it could be worse (poor Baggy )

~2011 Spring hardcourt cheering thread ~

Allez Gilles!

Over the next few months he plays Rotterdam, Marseille and Dubai.

The Rotterdam draw is out http://www.atpworldtour.com/posting/2011/407/mds.pdf

He has a qualifier in R1, Ljubicic or Stakhovsky in R2 and one from Andy M, Baggy, Feli or Florian Mayer in R3. Lets just not look any further than that for now

Re: Winter/Spring HC season 2011

I wasn't brave enough to make a new thread, i posted in scheduling but I think it's not a bad draw I know Murray is a difficulty for Gilles but he may be tired after AO...i'm being optimistic :P Good luck to him anyway

Gilles Simon
Dimitrov • Mahut • Paire • Hewitt • Raonic • Berdych • Gulbis • Murray


Thanks for the memories... Andy Roddick.

Re: Winter/Spring HC season 2011

Yours was first, but I did a refresh right before I posted it so there was only a few seconds in it

You had good success with your Oz thread and I'm a known jinxer so it's for the best

Re: Winter/Spring HC season 2011

hi
I think it's probably a good draw, you know Murray will likely go in a self destruction period like he did last year when he lost AO Final to Roger
So maybe he will be out from the first round (too optimistic.. I know)
anyway good luck Gilles and hopefully he will go far in this tournament ..

Re: Winter/Spring HC season 2011

Ahhhh, I like Andy, I don't want to wish him bad. But if he's going to slump and lose to someone early, then I wish he can get to QF and lose to Gilles , would be a great boost for our boy to beat his nemesis for a change . But there's a qualifier and possibly a legenda in the way before we can talk about a QF, so I shouldn't get ahead of myself.

Re: Winter/Spring HC season 2011

I love Andy but I'll be cheering the house down for Gillou, should they both make it that far!
We get TV coverage from Thursday, if there are streams, can someone record them? (if there are any, the streaming sites are being hit just now )

Re: Winter/Spring HC season 2011

Gilles isn't listed on OOP for tomorrow, he is playing Benoit Paire on Tuesday then. I want this young frenchie to do well, I like the look of him, shame he got drawn against my favorite, Gilles always comes first

Gilles Simon
Dimitrov • Mahut • Paire • Hewitt • Raonic • Berdych • Gulbis • Murray


Thanks for the memories... Andy Roddick.

Re: Winter/Spring HC season 2011

Wow, that was good luck. I think Benoit was the easiest qualy of the ones who entered main draw

Re: Winter/Spring HC season 2011

Quick report from the train I saw Gilou practicing today and I got the cutest pic of him when he saw me at the side of the court taking pics. Of course tutu gave me a few looks too, I could just see him thinking "somehow you look familiar..."
Anyway, I didn't see them, but heard from a friend that Gilou brought his lucky charm, little Timothee. He was indeed in a hurry after practice, think he wanted to go back to the hotel asap. I hope I will see Carine around when there are no matches right next to the training court, today Julien and Benoit played right next to that court. Lucky me, I didn't have to choose, but Gilou wins anyway, haha.
Only thing that worried me a bit was his neck. He was already there, but my friend saw him walking on court with one of those whiplash collars on his neck and during training he was touching it a lot. Afterwards he sat down and did some exercises like turning his head left and right. But he could still laugh with Llodra and he didn't seem to be in extreme pain when he was twisting his head, so it might be that he slept on the wrong side, woke up with a little pain and just took precautions. That was it for today, sorry for any spelling mistakes (phone keyboard is a bit annoying) and pictures will be up when I get home.
