Andy has problem with Gilles' challenge in the first set? Andy, c'mon, give Gilles a break, you already has the upper hand in the match .

He was having a go at the umpire - Gillou asked him if he had a problem with him and he said no. According to Mark Petchey on Sky anyway

Re: On to Miami, "Take Two" continues...

I know. Just thought it's funny that he complains at all, with the Umpire. I'm not whining, but I found it funny that he has a problem with that. And that challenge is like in the first game.

Re: On to Miami, "Take Two" continues...

Oh Les, can u tell me what's the other commentator's name? It's bugging me that I can't recall his name. I like him though, he's fair, unlike other American. And he was with Petchey commenting Gilles' match in Paris against Legenda ages ago.

Re: On to Miami, "Take Two" continues...

I've watched Gilles' matches with so much anxiety lately, watching this match is kinda relaxing. Sadly, that's probably due to the fact that I'm not expecting Gilles to win.

Yes, I like this team very much, almost as much as Goodall and Koenig.

Agreed!

Good stuff from Gillou! Massive hold from 0-40 and he's wearing Andy out a wee bit. Mr Lendl will be having words

Re: On to Miami, "Take Two" continues...

Gilles yelled out after Andy missed. And he has a smile on his face, like "finally, he missed before me" . Gilles' relax too, maybe he's like me, not thinking high on his chance.

Damn, that's a great lob from Andy. Poor Gilles, having to run so much...

Re: On to Miami, "Take Two" continues...

Well, lost 3-6, 4-6. He tried, but not good enough.

He doesn't need to attend for DC, so next tournament for him is Monte Carlo, starts in 4/16.

Now go get rest and get your back fixed, Gilles.

Re: On to Miami, "Take Two" continues...

Oh well, Gilles just doesn't know what to do against him. It's such a bad match-up but it was a solid tournament, got some points and hopefully some confidence from these two weeks.

Hopefully he can improve on the clay, he's so up and down on this surface.
