6-2 down, when Andy serves like that its nearly imposibble, he has played only 4 points on 2nd serve

Oh well, had his chances but Murray was too solid. Gilles has to be playing at his absolute best level to have a chance against Murray.

I'm hopeful for the rest of the indoor season but he needs to start playing better from the start of the match. He's giving the other player a set at the start and it's really hard to win consistently that way.

I didn't expect him to win, but I'm sad all the same, because this one was close and he had chances. Ah well, moving on.

That Beijing draw is rather tough. He would have no trouble with 3 out of the 4 top seeds but he got Jo . Oh well, he can manage. Good luck next week, Gilles.

Hi, you guys may feel a little bit better to know that more than half of the stadium were supporting Gilles. I'm not sure how it was translated on TV screen but we chanted "Allez Gilles" and "Simon. Simon" pretty loud and often. He's a more popular man than Andy here.

I'll post pic from the match later.
