Good match. He had his usual walkabout in the beginning of the second set but he pulled it together in time.

Re: 2013 Spring European Clay Season, Allez!

Much better level of play from Gilles today. Focused, purpose in his step and aggressive both defensively and offensively. Obviously it doesn't really mean a thing in terms of how he will play the next match because of how up and down he is right now in his career, but nonetheless, today was a good day and reminiscent of 2008/2009 Gilles.

Re: 2013 Spring European Clay Season, Allez!

6/1 7/5...at last a solid win. I was so scared when he had to serve to stay in the 2nd set, cos lately he looks like not to be able to hold when he's a game down! But not today ... someone in this thread, a couple of days ago, said a match at the time and i think tha's exactly what he's doing right now.

Rosol next for Gilles, was really hoping for Troicki. Oh well, it will be very tough especially if Rosol is serving well.

. It's not gonna be that easy, isn't it. Troicki & Tipsy would have been a perfect remedy for Gilles' deflating confidence. Oh well. Now it's Rosol and probably Funky Flo . Last time he played Rosol was 2 years ago in Dubai, Rosol was ranked 155. So it'll be a different Rosol this time, hopefully it doesn't mean he'll need a whole set to figure out what he's dealing with. And tbh, I'm a little concern about his physical, he seems to be touching his left hip area a lot in Set 2 (like that injury in Rotterdam). I'm not sure if he's entirely fit. But anyhow, no need to speculate, we'll find out how he manages tomorrow. Allez Gilles.

Re: 2013 Spring European Clay Season, Allez!

Good win by Gilles , I hope he is slowly but surely regaining confidence. Next up Rosol, if Gilles is up to it he has a great chance, and then on the final I hope it's GGL because Flo is such a bad matchup for Gilles.

Tutu commenting Gilles' match, how cool. I'm also watching a French stream, but I don't know which one is Tutu. What did they talk about Timothee?

Re: 2013 Spring European Clay Season, Allez!

The first set is not looking good for Gilles. His balls so short, Rosol at half way to the serve box most of the time. He seem to have trouble handling Rosol's power. This is gonna be quick if he doesn't find a way fast.

Re: 2013 Spring European Clay Season, Allez!

Rosol is always very aggressive, Gilles needs to not let him, but he fails badly so far. 6-2 in 39 mins. If he doesn't figure sth out soon, he won't have time to get back into the match. And where the hell is that first serve went?

About to be broken in 2nd set. Hope he wins more games than Troicki.
