Well, he serves the set out, 7-5 in 1h. 5 minutes, 9-13 W/UE's, not that bad after all.

Re: 2013 Spring European Clay Season, Allez!

Congrats Gilles

Now, the match-up between my first and second favorite players but of course I'll be rooting for Gilles. Let's take back the lead in the head to head!

Gilles Simon-Roger Federer

Re: 2013 Spring European Clay Season, Allez!

Better than yesterday. Good job. And I'm glad he kept it in 2. He played almost 4 hrs now in 2 days, while Fed only played like what, 50 mins so far.

Tomorrow he plays another one-handed backhand, 3rd in a roll now. Getting quite a practice in that catagory.
Good luck against Fed. Allez Gilles.

Re: 2013 Spring European Clay Season, Allez!

Really good fighting from Gilles. He may have had no real first serve, but all the more reason why it was an impressive win. He basically won the match off of a second serve. He fought hard and didn't waiver during key moments where he could've been down 4-2 in the second set and defended many times a 0-40 hole. He also worked his magic and drew a lot of errors out of Youzhny with his defensive skills and basically being a human backboard.

Another fine effort from Gilles to make it as far as he can before facing someone who will obviously be tough to beat and the clear favorite now. Still, Gilles may frustrate Federer and have some chances the way he did against Murray, and there's no question that Gilles does tend to get motivated and up more for big marquee matches against the top guys.

Anyway, good job Gilles for turning things around with Youzhny after losing quite a bit to him. This makes three wins in a row over somebody he used to struggle with and who clearly is still playing some good tennis to have beaten Haas the day before. I have no doubt Gilles will try his best against Federer and hopefully it will be enough.

Good to see him win in two after saving SP's in the first and being 3-*2 40-15 down in the 2nd. First games were really tough, but then he adjusted and played quite well at times IMO. Roger looked great vs Starace and it's on clay, where they've never played, so good luck!
