Re: Clay season 2012, "Take Two" most definitely

Serving well is a good sign. I'm happy.

GGL has no answer for his BHDTL, just like that last time they met on hard court. He's really looking good.

C'mon Gilles, please take care of Tipsy, I really want to see you play Nole. Allez. Hopefully Nole get past Wawa.

Re: Clay season 2012, "Take Two" most definitely

decent performance and despite his moaning i thought he moved really well on the blue clay. 3rd round he is the heavy favourite because of the h2h.

a qtr final would put him within a whisker of a place back in the top 10!

Time to make him your bitch, Gilles.

Tipsarevic was crap against Del Bonis. Hopefully he will play even worse.

Re: Clay season 2012, "Take Two" most definitely

Not a particularly good day for the Musketeers today. Tsonga and Monfils are out and you have to think that Gasquet will be as well considering his opponent. Being that I really only like Gilles of the French players anyway, it doesn't bother me, however, I do hope it's not a sign of things to come.

Re: Clay season 2012, "Take Two" most definitely

OMG, Nadal lost to Nando
Never say never.

Ok, now I'm a bit nervous, I hope Gilles gets thru. He did almost lose to the Fog, so he better be very focus against Tips. Allez Gilles.

Re: Clay season 2012, "Take Two" most definitely

5 games in 12 mins. There's hardly any rally, both of them are serving a storm at the moment. Can they keep up? Hopefully, Gilles can maintain it.

Re: Clay season 2012, "Take Two" most definitely

why are you so bad on TB

2-4

Some spectacularly bad misses and a bad net cord. C'mon Gilles, overcome your nerve and come back please.

Re: Clay season 2012, "Take Two" most definitely

Lost 1st set in TB.

Losing to Tipsy on clay would be unforgivable, despite the fact that Tipsy is higher rank.

You better come back, Gilles.

Gilles . It's like he loses the tiebreak in his head before it's even played.

Well in fairness this isn't really clay, it's playing like a fast hardcourt.

Re: Clay season 2012, "Take Two" most definitely

Gilles Simon's toughtest opponent has gotten the better of him once again. His mind.

He may have won the past four encounters against Tipsy, but this one is not looking good.
