Re: 2013 Fall Season, Regroup! Allez!

This is Gillou I fell in love with. Worth the wait. So he hasn't been sitting around and playing vdo games during time-off

Gillou , great comeback, he's done the double in Metz ( both times after his children were born). Surely something fun to tell his sons!

Re: 2013 Fall Season, Regroup! Allez!

I see that his beefing up still has a long way to go, still struggling to lift up that Metz trophy . Valentin will have his own giant pacifier to play with.

11th title, 4th on indoors, 3rd in France ( Metz ^ 2, Marseille), and gets an 11-4 record on finals , plus he has got his first win on a final vs a Top-10 ( 3rd of the season after the Delpo and Tipsy ones)

BTW, I hope that if he is too tired he withdraws from Bangkok ( he has succeeded on defending his points from there, even added 100 pts.) , but I think he will play, he can start on Thursday. Allez Gilles!

Re: 2013 Fall Season, Regroup! Allez!

After 3 long months of dark days, Gilles has come through for us and given us happy days once again!!! So happy that Gilles keeps the title a year for the past seven years straight alive! Not to mention that he won against France's golden boy Tsonga who so often overshadows him in the tennis media's eyes regardless of what he does or accomplishes. In the FFT's eyes especially.

Also his first ever win on a hard court against Jo Willie. The 5 wins that Jo had over him in their 5-2 H2H in favor of Jo all came on a hard court with Gilles' 2 lone wins coming on clay...until today that is of course. Gilles really does come through in finals. It's just getting there that can be the problem. He has a solid finals record. That means he's actually not intimidated by the moment. In fact, it seems 1st round matches are far more difficult for him than a finals match is.

But I've been saying it all week you guys. Look out! Top 6 Gilles is back. At least he was for this tournament this week. I hope he can sustain it for the rest of the year. Congrats Gilles!

And if anyone knows where to see a replay please let me know. I would love to see the match again.

Yay! I'm so happy to see Gilles back.
Carine and the boys really are his lucky charms.

Re: 2013 Fall Season, Regroup! Allez!

So happy for Gilles!
It's been so bad for him these past months, I never thought he would be winning a title so soon. Let's hope Valentin will continue to be such a good luck charm. Now praying he stays healthy and can get his ranking back to where he deserves.
