I know it was just before the Nishikori/Querrey match, but I was watching BBC2. They might have still shown it on ES though

Thanks for the memories... Andy Roddick.

I'll be at work but I'll be recording Eurosport and I have a pal recording BBC so if the match is shown, between us we should have it.

Allez Gilles, defeat Mannarino and play well. Also if he gets past Delpo the draw is open, the QF would be against Ward or Querrey, which comes in a terrible form. Wawa was upsetted by Ward

Gilles Simon
Benoît Paire, Edouard Roger-Vasselin,Nicolas Mahut, Jeremy Chardy, Aljaz Bedene, Florian Mayer, Tommy Robredo, Evgeny Korolev, Albert Ramos, Guillaume Rufin

Re: The Grass is Always Greener on Gilou's Court - 2011

Grrr, Gillou 4th on court 1. No stream. Ah well, good luck to him against the young frenchie, Mannarino has been a bit variable lately, I think a Gulbis win, however, isn't that threatening . But we shall see, Allez!!

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


Thanks for the memories... Andy Roddick.

Gilles is 4th match on court 1. Wonder if it'll be on TV, it's scheduled for the same time as Del Potro's match

Battle of the light-weights . Adrian same height as Gilles and 4kg lighter according to his ATP bio.

Too bad no stream, I would love to see these 2. Flyboy said Adrian is a good grass player, I have no idea cos I never saw him play on grass. Anyhow, Allez Gilles!

I'm pretty sure they don't even have cameras on court 1, i've only ever seen centre court matches, but i may be wrong

i agree with filo V. that adrian has the game to be very good on grass..given gillou's habit of struggeling with frenchmen this could be a dangerous match for him if adrian plays well

Paire, Benneteau, Gicquel

Another rain delay. They're still only on the first match on court 1, Gilles may not be able to finish his match today depending on the length of the others.

Edit: it appears his match has been moved to court 2, he is on after Nalby

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