Asia/indoor 2011 - Hard isn’t getting easier but finish line is near!

So, it was a struggle, but somehow he made decent results in 2 out of 3 US hardcourt tournaments. Here’s hoping that he will do better for the remaining of the hardcourt season in Asian and then indoor. Coming up is Bangkok, where he returns to defend his title, well, sorta, since he didn’t get a chance to play there last year. We’ll see what happen then. Allez Gilles.

Bangkok Draw, his half:

(1) Murray vs bye
Berrer vs qualifier
qualifier vs Gulbis
Dimitrov vs (5) Dodig

(3) Simon vs bye
Lu vs Souza
qualifier vs Bachinger
(WC) Udomchoke vs (6) Fognini

50/50 and he landed on Murray's side . Ah well, at least the road to SF is a clear path, so it seems. Good luck Gilles.

His lowest ATP250 is 45 pts, so he can replace that if he earns more than 45 pts, and a SF in ATP250 is 90 pts.

I'm watching a stream but it's terrible! If anyone is watching on bet365 and the streaming is significantly better then let me know, it might be worth me creating an account.

He's gonna lose , I knew I jinxed him when I said he has a clear path to SF . Lu's playing well, but Gilles not giving him any pressure either. And Gilles doesn't seem too eager to change things to get himself back. It's like he's saying come what may.
