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

And the match is not pretty at the moment. But for Gilles, it's all about surviving thru this. C'mon Gilles.

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

Melzer imploding, UEs gives Gilles 3 BPs, and then he dropshot Gilles but Gilles get to the ball and put it down the line past Melzer. He broke. Now, please go serve the match out, please, no hiccup.

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

Ace, 15-0
Moved Melzer around, forced an error, 30-0
Melzer dropshot UE, 40-0
Good shot hit the sideline and Melzer hit it out. GSM

Won 7-6, 6-4. Good man.

W/UE ratio: Simon: 20/15 Melzer 20/35

Next, the opponent is Murray and a bad back. Tough task, oh well. Good luck.

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

sucks that murray is up next but gillou has had two good runs in back to back masters events which is what he needed after the year he's had so far

hopefully his back will be okay

I could see him pull out here unfortunately. Still, great to see him winning a lot lately.

Nice win for Gillou but I'm worried about his back

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

maybe Gillou can end the losing streak here. After all Miami has been one of Murray's worst tournaments recently ..maybe the location can give gillou a little help.

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

He was very down in his post-match interview about his back and didn't seem to think he had much of a chance against Murray, particularly if he wasn't 100%. It didn't sound very promising to me but I hope that a day's rest will make him feel better.
