I might be in the minority, but I think that the Gilles/Richard doubles combination is far from useless. It might not be successful right away, but given their complementary strengths and weaknesses, it could be a very useful alliance.

I love looking at the bits and pieces of the draw and try to guess what the actual one is. Looks like Gilles is playing a qualifier in R1, and Berdych at R3 and Rafa in QF.

Re: The "Making tennis look easy on Hard" - US HC thread. 2011

so this is his half looks like:

Fish has a BYE
Lopez vs Q
Gulbis vs Ferrero
Llodra vs Youzhny

Wawrinka vs Nalbandian
Montanes vs Q
Andujar vs Anderson
Murray has a BYE

Berdych has a BYE
Dolgopolov vs Chvojka
Karlovic vs Monaco
Q vs Simon


Verdasco vs Q
Tipsarevic vs Haas
Dodig vs Chardy
Nadal has a BYE

Good luck Gilles.

Karlovic or Monaco can be tricky if Gilles is not playing very good, anyway Allez Gilles!

I hope Monaco beats Karlovic because you never know with Ivo. Not a great draw but not a terrible one either. He could/should make the QF's if he plays like he did in Hamburg.

Looking at the qualy draw, most dangerous players are Lu(which Gilles beated both on Sydney and Melbourne this year, Petzschner, and Kamke, Falla or Russell in a good day, but Gilles should beat them without problems
