Thank goodness, he won a TB. Back firmly against the wall and he finally wins a TB. C'mon Gilles. Best of 3 now. You do it.

I hope he starts putting some 1st serve in and get some free pts, 47% so far is not good enough.

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

Some great rallies so far in this third set. And Lala--the best news is that Martina N. and Mary C., and not the guys, are commentating. Not surprisingly, both appreciate Gilles' style of play. My guess would be that Martina has seen him play more than has John M. She is excellent at dissecting players' games. I hope he gives her only good stuff to analyze the rest of the match! Allez!!!!

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

This is a match that I'm more nervous when he's ahead . While, he has a break at hand right now, see if he can hold on to it. Last year Stan came back from 0-2 down to beat Jo here, he's not rolling over I don't think, although I don't mind if he does.

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

Martina is a Gilles fan. I heard her saying great things about Gilles before.

I would love to hear her commenting right now, but as it is, I'm watching a spanish stream.

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

Whoever gets an early break ended up losing the set in the first 2 sets. I don't like this pattern.

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

i expected this to be a marathon match. I dont expect it to get as bad as isner/mathieu yesterday because both of them have much stronger return games taht a break would probably come faster

however its not good for either one if it goes 5 since they have both played a 4 and a 5 setter already
