Re: 2013 Grass Season, Allez!

Unfortunately another slow start from Gilles. Needs to raise his game quickly to stay in this second set

Re: 2013 Grass Season, Allez!

Oh well, looks like he doesn't have a chance in this one. At least I had myself prepared for a first round loss.

Depressing. He's not winning this match, in fact, don't think he'll win a set.

Re: 2013 Grass Season, Allez!

No plan for getting to Lopez' aces though.

Re: 2013 Grass Season, Allez!

The commentators' suggesting that he may have some back problem. It's possible, seeing how tentatively he's been serving the whole match. Then again, it could be just him not feeling his serves today, and not much feel for his ground game either. The only thing that's working seems to be the volleys, how funny.

Re: 2013 Grass Season, Allez!

There's nothing you can really do when someone is serving like that. Maybe we can have a miracle and he has a second 2 set comeback, at least there's no way he's tired

Re: 2013 Grass Season, Allez!

I like Lopez so it's strange to cheer against him, but seriously Stop serving like such a beast

Re: 2013 Grass Season, Allez!

If he can hold to get a TB, maybe he can get Lopez to blink there, that's if he doesn't blink first. Well, there's a hope if he can keep holding, however tiny that hope is.

Re: 2013 Grass Season, Allez!

That's a good fight to hold. He's really digging in, but did he ever look so casual . I'm really kinda loving it, hope Gilles can at least prolong this match to another set.

Re: 2013 Grass Season, Allez!

Never thought I'll be so happy to see a TB , not confident that he will win though.

Re: 2013 Grass Season, Allez!

Oh well, he tried. Hope Lopez has a good tournament, his serve was looking amazing today. Maybe Gilles can have a bit of a break and really focus on having a few successful months to get his ranking closer to what it should be.
