Great effort from Gilles!
Nothing to be ashamed of. He played his heart out and left it all out there on the court. Truth be told, I was dreading this match today because after the previous encounter that Gilles and Fed had I was afraid of Gilles getting spanked bad on a much larger stage and in front of his home crowd no less, but he played extremely well and represented himself very well and I am very proud of him and his effort. Great tournament Gilles! Now get that ranking up so you don't have to face guys like Murray and Federer until the quarterfinals instead of the 4th round. Also, loved hearing the crowd chant "Gilou, Gilou Gilou" at the end and the great applause and ovation he got off the court.
