Boy, if anybody ever needed any convincing of how great, crucial and important the challenge system is, I hope they are watching this match.

I feel like he can take Gasquet or Nieminen if he's playing at this level. ALLEZ GILLES ET BONNE NUIT!

How fitting that it ends with a challenge.

He wins , 6-4 6-4, really convincing performance, everything was working, the serve, BH, FH..., 5-1 H2H vs Tipsy, he makes him his pidgeon, will play him again on Tokyo R1. 13th ATP final , also third Top-10 win of the season.

Re: 2012 Hardcourt all the way! 100% going forward! Hopefully.

I'm very impressed. Gilles maintained the opening break of serve in the 1st set all the way through and that's not easy to do because you've got so many games to hold to go still until the set is over. And then he didn't falter at all when he served for the match.

I'm telling you, Gilles has a look of focus that is back that I haven't seen for a while now and I think he really is determined to win this tournament for Tulasne. I don't think anything less will do in his eyes to end the longtime collaboration between the two.

Re: 2012 Hardcourt all the way! 100% going forward! Hopefully.

I love it. He's great today. He's so sure of himself the moment the match start, didn't get frustrated at any moment, didn't get nervous at crucial time. 2 Aces to close out the match. Vintage Gilles, really!

I'm so happy now. This match is so important. For one thing, he earned himself a seeding in Shanghai if I have not miscalculated the points. And for another, he earned a spot in the final where he will have a chance to thank Tutu in public even win or lose, Tutu deserves that. Congrats Gilles, great performance. Allez Gilles, good luck in Final.

We may be looking at an all French final. I would say Richard is the heavy favorite to beat Jarkko and if he does, then that will be the true test for Simon because as we all know he is 0-5 H2H against him on tour level matches. He will have to do what he's never been able to do before outside of exhibition matches.

If he plays the way he did today he can do it. Other than the Nadal match at Monte Carlo I think this might be his best match of the year.

Tokyo's draw is out. Gilles is not seeded, and his first round opponent...Janko Tipsevaric . Tipsy's not gonna be too happy

Can't say I'm too happy either. Surely he plays great against Tipsy most of the time. But he could have gotten an easier opponent so it won't take up too much energy. Then again, when you are not seeded, you have to be lucky to have easy 1st round opponent. He could have gotten Murray, instead Gael got Andy 1st round.
