Re: 2013 Spring US Hardcourts, Allez!

It's ironic that I think this was his best match of the tournament but he lost. Still pretty poor overall but at least it wasn't embarrassing and was a step up from the first two rounds at least. Same old story losing serve to start the third set.

Not a bad match. Kevin was on fire and could hang with Gilles from the baseline.

Re: 2013 Spring US Hardcourts, Allez!

It's not too bad, is it? At least the score isn't. I only got to see a few pts here and there, I'll watch the replay to find out myself. Sad though, so close, I know his game is sucking badly right now, but regardless, winning is still better than losing. Oh well, hopefully Miami he will be better, I'm not sure how he will manage to make his game better. But his game in Marseille was completely different from Rotterdam, so who knows. Let's hope for the best.

Yep, exactly. He played better today, but that's not saying much because of how awful he was in the previous two matches. Still not anywhere up to his level. If he had played like he did against Del Potro in Marseille, he would've had no trouble with Anderson.

At least he doesn't leave us all with a performance like he had against Paire for us to have to stew over. Today he was just mediocre but not awful. I guess I can deal with that for now.

Expected loss, I had the hope that Gilles would surprise us and win but just not today. The last two points were a bit frustrating, who knows what would have happened if he had attacked. Again, making R4 while playing like shit is not that bad, but good draws are not usual with Gilles and tis was a huge chance for a MS QF. Anyways, I hope he plays better in Miami!

Re: 2013 Spring US Hardcourts, Allez!

I assumed it was Carine cos in this clip

Timothee was playing alone near her.

That explains why papa was busy baby sitting Timothee this week.

Re: 2013 Spring US Hardcourts, Allez!

A very blurr image, but it could be her. 5 mths? no way, at least 6. Okay, so maybe July due day... which means the baby will come during Wimbly . Joking. Hopefully it will be during his off time in the summer so he won't miss it this time. When Timothee was born, I predicted that their 2nd will be in 3 years, spot on (if that's really her).

Oh thanks for the pic and the clip, Blue. Timothee had finally beat that beach ball into pulp at the end of the clip , so cute.

I agree, it's consistent with Carine's morphology. ^^

No wonder he's been so stressed this year, he probably is getting no sleep.
