Expected outcome, at least for me anyway. I had made peace with this being the outcome after he beat Cilic. I just didn't expect him to have much left to give against Tsonga. He competed well and actually had chances in the first set, but losing the tiebreak really kinda just took the last of his energy. I have to admit that I really don't like Tsonga. He's never really sit well with me of the Frenchies so whenever Gilles loses to him no matter the circumstances it always stings a little more than it would otherwise.
Having said that, Gilles did amazing at this year's AO all things considered and the good news is that his ankle looks to have turned out well after everything and all the tennis he played in the first two matches so at least that potential tragedy of an injury and long absence from the game was averted and by making it to the 3rd round he's at least minimized the amount of points he will lose compared to a forfeit or 1st round loss.
Well done Gilles and after a rocky start, here's to a much better rest of the 2014 season. Allez Gilou!
