2014, Season at the Americas!

He's also playing doubles with Chardy vs Isner/Querrey. Good to see the dream team back

He plays Thiem first match. I think this is going to be very difficult for him.

Re: 2014, Season at the Americas!

Well it's too bad Thiem won because if the American player had won then we'd be getting to see Gilles on one of the three streamed stadium courts, but since Thiem's not American, Gilles will be playing him tomorrow on Stadium 5, a non-streamed court siiigh.

Interestingly enough though, we will be able to see him in doubles action for a change since he will be facing the two yanks Isner and Querrey on Stadium 2. Don't like his chances there but will be interesting to see him playing doubles at least since it's been a while since I've been able to see him do it. Good luck Gilles!

Re: 2014, Season at the Americas!

Perfect example of what I mean by Gilles being too unpredictable and just a wild card from week to week. One minute he's playing fantastically like his old self circa 2009 and taking a top 3 player to the limit and the next week he's losing to a 20 year old qualifier ranked 101 in the world in straight sets. It's gonna be a tough long year with that ranking continuing to got south me thinks. Oy vey Gilles.

Well he lost to that top 3 player. He needs a psychologist more than anything, can't think of something remotely plausible to explain all his losses and multiple injuries but mental. Anyway the young gun is supposed to be good. Still Gilles just gave up. Just no point competing like this

I hope he can at least beat Sousa/C.Busta on R2, and then who knows vs Berdych if Gilles plays well ( which is not happening this year sadly). Allez Gillou !

Well after Berdych's loss in IW I'm hopeful Gilles can catch a break here. Allez!

Re: 2014, Season at the Americas!

I saw Sousa's match against Carreno Busta and thought he was playing great. I don't have high hopes for this one...

Gilles wasted three SP's from 40-0 leading *5-4. I just can't believe this

Re: 2014, Season at the Americas!

Aaaand the first set that he was leading the majority of has been lost. Shocking I know . I hope Gilles can rebound in the 2nd set but I sure won't be holding my breath. Good God Gilles c'mon man! You're better than this!
