Re: 2013 Spring US Hardcourts, Allez!

Anyone who can hold serve has great chance against Gilles these days.

He breaks again, still not a single winner from him, but Zemlja is all over the place sometimes ( 18 UE's).

Re: 2013 Spring US Hardcourts, Allez!

Based on what I'm seeing so far, he's not playing any better than IW thus far.

Not a good match so far, worse than that Paire match. Zemlja hit as many UEs as Paire, but he's not nearly fun to watch as Benoit.

Re: 2013 Spring US Hardcourts, Allez!

Ok, I did predict a rough first set, not exactly like this though. Hopefully he plays better in the 2nd. 43 UEs combined in the first set.

Gilles never was an exactly agressive player, but this US swing has saw him play so passively, his BH which used to be rock solid and able to produce winners is absent, and he usually goes for too much on his FH.

Gilles breaks due to some poor errors from Zemlja. 3/2 up

Re: 2013 Spring US Hardcourts, Allez!

He's not playing well, confident is low, so he's grinding matches out. It's not pretty, but winning is better than losing. On the one hand, it's annoying that he's playing so badly, on the other, it's amusing that he still win considering how bad he's playing right now.

Broken while serving for the match. Zemlja is mounting his comeback again, this time not from 1-5 but 2-5.

Re: 2013 Spring US Hardcourts, Allez!

If he keeps playing like this, maybe he'll finally admit that he needs a coach... okay, wishful thinking.
