Re: 2013 Grass Season, Allez!

So did they call it a day, or is there still a chance the match will resume? I don't have the sound for the stream.

Good job Gilles. It was nice seeing him play the big points well.

Re: 2013 Grass Season, Allez!

Gilles , I think it's his first ATP SF on grass, and he played quite well, 27 W- 19 UE'S, 13/19 at the net. Next up Seppi, who plays quite solid, and who has won and reached the final here on the last two years, so it will definitely be tough.

Re: 2013 Grass Season, Allez!

Definitely played better today. He had an upset stomach yesterday so I think that played a role in why he looked a little worse for wear compared to today. I haven't really seen Seppi for a while so I don't know if his game has really changed much or if he's just more confident now or what, but I think that if Gilles plays up to his own level, he will be able to out-perform Seppi.

Re: 2013 Grass Season, Allez!

Yes! Great work Gilles!
Watched some highlights from the Edmund match and he was looking quite ill at times, so nice to see this didn't effect his performance too much today.
If his form keeps improving like it has been I can see him actually winning this title (and it should be giving him loads of confidence ahead of Wimbledon)

Re: 2013 Grass Season, Allez!

Funny indeed that Gilles is headlining this tournament. It worked out, considering he was the only Top 6 seed in the quarterfinals. Seppi at 7 is the only other seed in the tournament, and he's played well here before in the past, but Gilles can beat anyone when he brings his A-game. He needs to ride some positive energy with Jan to his first grass court final. I'm sure DeWitt has a good adjustment for Gilles to make playing against Seppi tomorrow; we'll see how it pays off.

Re: 2013 Grass Season, Allez!

Gilles got an absolutely impossible draw at Wimbledon, it's sad really. Oh well, I'm not sure he makes it out of round 1.

Re: 2013 Grass Season, Allez!

Well, I'm not really surprised by this. A bit bummed yes, but not surprised. As the 19 seed, you're not going to get too easy a draw usually and the big guns start around the 3rd round instead of the quarters. But, if I could try to put a bit of a positive/optimistic spin on this, it would be that Gilles may end up facing Lopez here in the final if both guys win their semifinals which would give Gilles an early preview of what he would be dealing with 1st round at Wimbledon which would be a positive for him and his coach. Secondly, he does have a chance if he could get through Lopez (we'll know more after today about the situation regarding that) I see him being able to get through either 2nd round opponent if he keeps up his current level.

Paul hasn't been playing very well now again as of late. Then if Haas stays alive in his section then I know it will be tough, but I still give Gilles a bit of a chance to sneak out that win in a best 3 out of 5 sets because of Tommy's age. Realistically Gilles' end would come most certainly in the 4th round against Djokovic. I'll be ecstatic and satisfied if he can make it there and happy or content if he can at least make it to the 3rd round. If he can just get his ranking back up inside the top 15 it will help him in majors like this stave off the harder opponents for at least one more round. Winning Eastbourne is a good way to move that ranking up and help that cause.

Re: 2013 Grass Season, Allez!

Sloppy play for both today, granted, very windy condition.
He has no first serve so far, should I blame it on the wind?

Allez!

Re: 2013 Grass Season, Allez!

Served out the first set without hiccap.

Hopes he'll win it, better in 2. He's coughing a bit.

Alright so the stream i'm watching on right now the commentators just said that they were told that Gilles Simon is a smoker. This is BS is it not?
