Wow, Paulo retired. He took a MTO 2 games ago but it didn't really look bad. But anyway, hopefully he's not too injured.

Gilles won 6-4, 5-4

Too bad for PHM but for a first round match I thought Gilles was playing well. His first serve was good today and he was hitting pretty aggressively. One match at a time.

Re: ◄ Grass season 2012 ►onwards and upwards!!!

Paulo said he felt tension on top of the leg even before the match, he thought it would go away when he plays but it didn't, he didn't want to aggravate anything, he's not too worried but he prefers to be cautious (yes, better for him since he's so injury prone).

Gilles played well enough, The first set serve stat is very encouraging, 70% 1st serve. But by 2nd set, 1st serve % has dropped to mid 50%. Well, hopefully, he can keep serving well, cos that's like the most important on grass. It's good that the first match is short and not taxing. On the other hand though, I thought it's better for him to get more play time to get into rhythm. But anyway, we'll see what happen next round, against Malisse. Allez, Gilles.

Allez Gilles ! He has a 2-0 H2H vs Xavier, and he will be motivated for the match taking into accont what Malisse said about him some years ago.
