Oh well, as I said earlier even if he can't get into the top 10 I hope he plays well in Paris at home to finish out the year on a high note. We have to remember he's moved from the mid-40s to close to the top 10 in one year so it's been a successful year overall.
I don't think he ever plays well in Paris, the fast surface doesn't fit him much.
Anyway, he won 2 tournaments including a 500. It's been a good year in my book no matter.
Allez Gilles, keep trying next week.
