Gilles , SF in the 1st tournament after a long absence, he has a lot of merit as he's usually a slow starter. Good luck vs Nico, it will be tough!

BTW, I think it was the 1st time he didn't faced a BP this season.

Re: 2013 Fall Season, Regroup! Allez!

Why do I think his match doesn't start until 6pm local time . I missed the whole thing . Hopefully there's torrent somewhere.

Great win, winning a TB no less. Keep rolling Gilles. Allez!

Re: 2013 Fall Season, Regroup! Allez!

Good to see Gilles back in semi I saw him practice in Metz, my sister and I decided to go on a spontaneous road trip earlier this week. I congratulated him with his 2nd baby boy, or at least I tried to say it in French and he finished my sentence.
But semifinal against Nico will be tough, also for me as a fan of both. On the bright side, the one who wins this one, should win the title.

Re: 2013 Fall Season, Regroup! Allez!

Now we even know when Valentin was born. On the ATP site:

Meanwhile, Gilles Simon, who is attempting to lift the Moselle Open trophy for the second time, reached the semi-finals as well.

Just 11 days after the birth of his second son, Valentin, the second seed and 2010 champion beat sixth seed Sam Querrey 6-4, 7-6(1) in 77 minutes.

So, Sept 9th, 7 days after Timothee's bday. Surely the 2 boys will have birthday party together every year.

Thanks. But I don't have cable.

Haven't find the torrent yet, but I did catch the highlight from yesterday's De Schepper match, and at the end, the commentator said no sign of hip injury , what hip injury?

This is the clip I was watching:

Apparently, his reason for retiring of Cincy was hip injury , but I'm not sure.

Gilles played well. I didn't see the stats but I think no break points again. Good luck in the final!

Re: 2013 Fall Season, Regroup! Allez!

I'm tellin' ya guys Gilles is looking like his top 6 old self in every match so far. He's maintaining the level which is so nice to see. I mean Mahut threw everything he had at Gilles and he didn't flinch. I know it's going to be hard in the finals for him, especially if it's Tsonga, but if Gilles continues to maintain his top form like he has the past three matches, he will be in with a real shot at keeping his at least one title a year streak alive. Maybe this time off was just what he needed to completely refocus and renew himself. Go Gilles!!!


Oh, and the hip injury thing was just a hip-flexer strain that was bothering him in Cincy in addition to the still soar ribs. Nothing serious.

Re: 2013 Fall Season, Regroup! Allez!

Bangkok draw is out. He has Karlovic or Tomic in the second round. Definitely the toughest draw possible but hopefully he keeps serving well.

Re: 2013 Fall Season, Regroup! Allez!

I watched in bits and pieces, Gilles played well against Mahut. Go for the title!

Gilles , I'm really liking his confident and agressive game here, he's serving his best in a long time. Good luck vs Jo or Flo Mayer tomorrow!
