Great stuff from Gilles!
Win or lose, hopefully this will be the turning point of his season.
In my heart I want to believe that, but my gut tells me that this will be ultimately no different than it was when he played amazingly against Murray a few months ago for a set and half and then lost. I think if he had won this match, which he should've, then it would've made a difference for him and his confidence, but as it is, I see it as nothing more than Gilles getting himself geared up for a big match in a big stage. He's a big match player and loves those moments, but struggles with the day to day grind otherwise these days. I want to be wrong but I don't think so.
