You are killing me Gilles, but you won, so I'm gonna forgive you this once.

I don't really call fighting back from two sets down to win your first ever match after having lost the first two sets pathetic but whatever.

Re: 2013 Spring European Clay Season, Allez!

How did he lose the first two sets? It doesn't seem possible with Hewitt's game style that Gilles could lose that comfortably against him. Damn wedding of a friend made me sleep in a little late but I guess I was a good luck charm this time because he started to dominate as soon as I turned it on. Almost choked it away though I think the first match is always the toughest, hopefully he relaxes more now.

Re: 2013 Spring European Clay Season, Allez!

I'm so glad Gilles was able to overcome his nerves and usual early match jitters. We just read that article talking about how he's usually a slow starter and it takes him awhile to get his teeth in the match. That obviously what happened here today. Once Gilles woke up at 4-4 in the third set he was untouchable for the rest of the match until the end which was mainly due to some unlucky happenings like the broken string on match point 2nd serve return and two net chords from Hewitt as well. Then he admittedly started getting tight, but he came good in the end and it was touching seeing him give his momma some flowers for Mother's Day. Well done Gilles.

I'd say please make it easier on us next round but, unfortunately, I know better than that.
