Re: 2013 Winter European Indoors, Allez!

Gilles should have broken in the 1st set, a combination of Klizan slapping some winners and Gilles getting unlucky prevented him from breaking. He had Klizan under pressure on every service game and the pressure eventually told on his body as well as mind.

As I have said I don't think Gilles is playing well, but I'm happy he is battling. I hope he gives it his all in the SF because there is 300 points up for grabs which would be nice to help him stay at least top 20 for the rest of the year.

Re: 2013 Winter European Indoors, Allez!

Bennetau takes the 1st 64, Gilles is playing much better than yesterday IMO , just lacking a bit more of a read on Benny 1st serve. He showed great tennis in the last game,but Benny saved 2 BP's with a 2nd serve Ace and a good play at the volley.

Re: 2013 Winter European Indoors, Allez!

Yes, he's playing much better today, quite well in fact. Benny though, is as well as I've seen him play, let's see if he keep that up.

I'm happy about what I've seen so far, although it would be better if Gilles is on top. Hopefully, he can come back. Allez.

Re: 2013 Winter European Indoors, Allez!

He breaks with some inspired play. He seems to have a physical problem though.

Re: 2013 Winter European Indoors, Allez!

He seems to have some trouble with his left Hamstring. Hopefully that won't hamper him too much, let him play good tennis for the whole duration of this match please. C'mon Gilles.

Re: 2013 Winter European Indoors, Allez!

Yeah noticed that too. Let's hope it's not serious.
I do find it hard to watch, I don't know who to cheer for.
Somehow it's maybe better for Julien to lose this than to lose the final again. But in order to know if he can beat Delpo he has to get to that final. Anyway, I'm cheering for the Frenchman tomorrow.

From 40-0 to fighting off bps, but he managed to hold.

I give up. It's impossible for Gilles to stay healthy anymore. There's just always something that happens that gets in the way.
