Re: 2013 Australia, new adventure begins in Down Under

This is the part I don't like as a Gilles fan, watching him torture himself.

Re: 2013 Australia, new adventure begins in Down Under

F**k. I want him to stop and at the same time I want him to make that one more ball. This really hurts. And deep down, I know the more effort he put in, the more effort he waste for no good reason.

Re: 2013 Australia, new adventure begins in Down Under

I know it's not much of a comfort but we all know that Gilles had Monfils beat before he started cramping and there wasn't really much chance in him beating Murray so yes he should've made it to the 4th round and gotten the extra bit of points, but, at least he made it to the 3rd round with no warm up tournament and being sick. Also, in true Simon fashion, he is showing what a fighter and stand up guy he is. Without question if this was Monfils, Gasquet or Tsonga, they would've retired long ago. That's not Simon's style. That's where he breaks away from the mold of most of the french players. He doesn't quit.

Re: 2013 Australia, new adventure begins in Down Under

Yes, he doesn't quit, that's what I love about him. But at the same, too damn hard to watch him when you know he's hurting like hell.

Re: 2013 Australia, new adventure begins in Down Under

I don't care if he cannot walk out to the court next round, I just want him to win this because he really have it in the bag and then that damn bad luck strike 4-3 in the 3rd. It just so not fair.

Re: 2013 Australia, new adventure begins in Down Under

I'm going nuts here. I'm sitting at the couch, feeling every pain and agony that Gilles is feeling. I'm sure he feels 100 times worse than what I'm feeling.

Re: 2013 Australia, new adventure begins in Down Under

Oh my god, if you have any strength left, please Gilles, gather them all and sprint to the finish line. Please, please, please let him win.

Re: 2013 Australia, new adventure begins in Down Under

Such a shame for Simon. And the crowd is totally on Gael's side and not giving Simon much love at all despite all of the heart he's shown.

Re: 2013 Australia, new adventure begins in Down Under

Gilles out there all alone fighting his heart out, even the net code won't help him. He'll just have to will himself thru this. Cmon Gilles. Against all odds, we know you can do it.

Re: 2013 Australia, new adventure begins in Down Under

I hope these 2 don't have to play against each other ever again, every time they play, they just shorten each other's career by 2 years.
