Re: 2013 Spring European Clay Season, Allez!

The lower the ranking his opponent is, the more he struggles against him, does that feel like it that way?

Re: 2013 Spring European Clay Season, Allez!

My stream crashed, then he broke Volandri, how did that happen? nevermind.

Just serve it out, will you?

Re: 2013 Spring European Clay Season, Allez!

Really nasty stat. Oh well, he won, so maybe I shouldn't complain.
Please play better next round, Gilles.

Re: 2013 Spring European Clay Season, Allez!

Eh, I'll chalk this performance up to typical early match jitters from Simon. He struggled last week 1st round against Benny and then played better each round forward. It's going to be tough regardless against Youzhny, but I actually like his chances against him better than I did against Haas and if he plays like he did against Murray, he's got a shot.

Re: 2013 Spring European Clay Season, Allez!

Only saw the last 6 games. From what I saw, Gilles just wasn't hitting with enough depth and was allowing Volandri to dictate too many points. Obviously, he'll need to be more aggressive against Youzhny. Good luck Gilles!

Very good first set from him but the second and the third terrible.

Well, at least he's winning and not too down after the loss to Andy. I don't know how on earth Gilles just managed 4 BP's on Volandri serve, and the Italian got 19 . Youzhny up next, definitely tough, Gilles won in Hamburg last time, but it was really tough.

Re: 2013 Spring European Clay Season, Allez!

Gilles will be up 2nd on Supertennis Arena tomorrow not before 12PM local time. The H2H is 7-2 in favor of Youzhny, but Gilles has won the last two meetings, including one that was on clay, so hopefully he can keep the turn around going and win again. Allez Gilou!

And he breaks after tough exchanges, 4-3 for Youzhny. He needs to find his serve though, and bit of his attacking game ( 1W- 8 UE's)
