I'm pulling a Zahirah and opening all the new threads.

Of course the prospect of a pic thread was a major reason for asking for a Gilles forum. I have no new ones yet, but feel free to post the best old ones in the meantime. :drool:

I'm glad your opening all the new threads.

Here are some older pics from the thread.

From RG 2005 (Is that Winogradsky)??:

This photos is the first time I became aware of Gilles. It was AO 2006. He had given so much in his match against Berdych that he literally had to be helped off the court (he won by the way). :)

He had given so much in his match against Berdych that he literally had to be helped off the court (he won by the way). :)I became a fan in Marseille 2007 (I had never seen him play before) and I'm pissed I missed that epic AO 2006! I know Forget called him "a genious" after that match, which made Gilles laugh in an interview when he was asked about it (he answers something like "nice from him, but I'm not so sure, it must be the first time he was watching me play!"), so I'm very curious to know why the hell Forget called Gillou a "genious". :lol:

(I put bits of the French interviews of the AO 2006 here: http://gilles-simon.over-blog.com/article-18005307.html - it's fun to read now a few years later, he's also asked to describe his game, etc. - I can translate it later if anybody is interested.)

He looks so great on these older pics of Cécile. But I have never seen a pic of him as a boy. He wasn't doing well in the boys championships, so there are plenty of pics of Richard, Gaël, Jo, even Mathieu Montcourt (or Clément Morel!) on the FFT websites, but never of "young Poussin".

He really was still looking like a boy in his first years on the tour, he has changed a lot:

Yes, please, I saw them in the gallery on Corinne Dubreuil's website, but they were with watermarks there.

I remember he looked pretty skinny in these pics, that was only one year ago, he has really developed his upper body when you compare with the shirtless pics taken by Toppu in Sydney at the beginning of the year.

– I see Toppu's pics (http://www.menstennisforums.com/showpost.php?p=6489397&postcount=1198) are not available anymore, unfortunately, so here are two for the ones who missed the whole series:

Some random pics which were already posted, I just browsed through the Gilles pics I still have on my HD (but I have lost many of them lately).

I know it's silly, but I love the way he sometimes throws his racquet with a sulky face: :p

And Gillou showing some emotion on the court (Umag 07, Rotterdam 08, AO 08, Marseille 08, Sopot 07, Marseille 07, Bucarest 07, Umag 07):

Is my translation right? - that he says he has good timing in striking the ball that's why he can get so much force on the ball without expanding too much energy.

Thanks for all the :drool: pics especially the one with Serra and Gicquel?? and Toppu your pics are fantastic. Thanks for reposting them.

Thanks a lot, Toppu, and you can also post the old ones again, Zahirah, we won't mind!
It's hard to find them again in the old thread - and you guys take the best pics of Gilles, really. The media often have terrible pics of him, while he looks so great in yours. Some of my favourite pics of him were also taken by Iza in Bucarest, I think.

To stay on topic, a couple of "portraits" and press conference pics (already posted in the other thread too by Ome for most of them):

I first noticed him in Rotterdam 2007, because Thierry was with him. But I didn't become a real fan untill Halle that year. Gilles suddenly sat right next to me at Santoro's match. Didn't notice him sitting down, but I was so overwhelmed when I looked his way, I concluded I had to be a fan when giving that reaction :lol:
I wouldn't get that excited if it was Gasquet instead :p Just as an example, 'cause we saw him walking around a lot

And my second post in this picture thread can't go by without actually attaching a pic ;)
It's from Marseille this year, we were just sitting outside at that door when Gilles arrived. Together with meeting Murray for the first time, it was the highlight of the tournament :lol:

I'm glad we have a new forum, you were hiding that nice pic from us, Kezzi! Poussin's match against RobredoI doubt that's the match which made a fan out of you since we were talking about that? ^^ (I didn't see it, but I saw the "highlights" and it looks like Gilles hardly won a rallye, was it really that bad? http://fr.youtube.com/watch?v=NaCA2eVYyj4)

well last year I saw two Gillu's matches live, against Robredo and against Canas.
Poussin didn't play good against the spanish player (and I argued with some Robredo fans while I was watching the match :p) but probably due to an amazing match played the day before against Canas. I was there and saw the perfect geometric game of Simon and admired the way he found to beat the great defensive game played by the argentinian...I rooted for Gillu from '05 but that was the day he became one of my favorites

I love that last picture, except for the ugly chubby guy.

And I love his smile in the second to last. Don't you just think he has a wonderful smile? Awwww. :hearts:

And in the first picture you posted it looks like that guy is choking him. He must be so bewildered and confused by Gilles' hotness that he grabbed the wrong head.

The third picture in your second post is also one of my favorites. It's very naughty looking. :devil: :drool: Ah, if my mom new what a perv I've become, she'd be oh so proud.

Thanks, Cin, I confirm he IS really cute.

My pics suck, I can't take good pics of Gilles Simon for some reason. All my pics of him playing are completely blurred.
He was always practicing on courts with a wire fence (with Mahut on Sunday and only with Tulasne on Monday), so I couldn't take pics of the training.
Here are a few pics of the Malisse match (and the Sunday training), I have more, but they all look the same and are all pretty blah:

Truc
05-13-2008, 12:26 AM
And pics of the :hearts: doubles with Jo - I realize now I hardly have any pic of him smiling for Scottie although they were smiling quite a lot (about his volleys, for example!):

Scotso

I love the pictures. Especially, yes, the one of them smiling. ;)

Truc

He looked so great during the doubles match, I wish you would have seen it - because he was much more relaxed, of course, but also because he had shaved, somebody tell him he looks much better without that "beard"!
And I know most of you guys are not Jojo fans, which is normal since they're pretty much the opposite, but they make such a nice team together. Gilles also was watching shortly Jo's singles match yesterday.

He looked so intense and angry during the Malisse match, it was quite hot too in a way, but he almost scared me. ^^ He was screaming things like "Puuuutain, mais ils font un concours de plage, là ou quoi?!? :fiery:" because of the horribly loud speaker on the Center Court, he cracked me up. :lol:

And I don't know if it shows in these few pics, but his haircut was pretty funny too. You have to see it live, I guess, it reminded me of what Zahirah said about his "big hair" in Sydney when she was afraid the wind would blow him over (although it probably was even "worse" in Australia).

Truc
05-13-2008, 07:02 PM
I took a look at my other pics, but they're definitely not interesting, it looks like I took the same pic 10 times. ^^
Anyway, here are a few others (I post the last training pic taken through the hence because I found his arms so skinny, Brego mentioned his legs last time in Rome, but I was a bit shocked by his arms too):

Scotso
05-13-2008, 08:43 PM
He is a bit skinny, but I find that very attractive on the right people. It suits him, I think.

I like the ones of him preparing to serve, he has that "don't @#%@ with Gillesex" look. :drool:

But he does look good, I love the pic of him smiling.

I posted the Tennis Magazine article in the Interview thread:

I managed to find a French pr.o.xy to watch the video - but it's not so interesting for you anyway, Zahirah, it's all in French and it's actually a video about Salim Sdiri, that long jumper who was hit by a javelin one year ago in a meeting, maybe you've heard of the story. He qualified for Beijing, so there's a whole report about him and he happens to be together with the guys of the French tennis team during the opening ceremony.

There even is a short interview of Gilles, here are a few screenshots with THE HAT:

Most of them looked a bit weird with the hat imo. But it really suited Gaël, I saw everybody is having a good laugh at my caps of Gaël during the opening ceremony in GM and I don't get why, I thought he looked cool. :shrug:
Anyway, the guys look so excited and happy, it's nice to see.

I didn't see Erno during the ceremony, btw, and I couldn't find pics in your pic thread in Gulbisland, do you have pics of him?

Brego
08-10-2008, 03:15 PM
Fran thanks for the screencaps. :)

Gilles looks cute but a little uncomfortable in his hat. Come to think of it, I've never ever seen him wear head gear out on the court.

The livescores are pretty bad on the Olympic site but I managed to find a really good quality livestream :D on the CBC website but only for centre court. :(
So Gilles is just going to have to beat Soderling and everyone else until he plays a higher ranked player which would put him on centre court. :)

Edit: Just found out that channelsurfing.net has livestream for the first 3 courts.


It looks like Gilles and Robin are rescheduled for 12:30 (right around the hottest time of the day). :devil:

He will have a few more chances to make that experience, but that's too bad, all the more since he had such an unlucky draw and his tournament also was over so quickly, I hope he still had a nice time?Come to think of it, I've never ever seen him wear head gear out on the court.He was always wearing a cap when he had long hair in 2006, but I've never seen him with head gear either since I started following him (2007).
I like he doesn't wear a cap.

From the last issue of Tennis Magazine:
http://img300.imageshack.us/img300/9951/gillesjeuneem7.jpg
Gilles at the age of 11, the article says he was so small compared to the others, but already a pain to play for the opponent and wasn't afraid to use sometimes "old-fashioned" shots like the sliced FH.

I still would like to see a pic of him at the age of 15-16 next to Jo & Co. That's the time when the height difference was particularly bad, according to him.

He was red in the face, but not bathed in sweat like Cañas - I can't find a good pic of Cañas to show the difference, but it was quite terrible on TV!
The FFT website also says it was just crazily hot out there.

I remember seeing her in the stands during Marseilles last year - she's really sweet :)

Awww thanks all for the pics of Gilles (past and present).

I agree that the picture that said he was 11, he actually looked about 5. lol.

Thanks for the pic of Gilles at age 11 - so cute. :)

I've never seen that picture of Carine before. It looks like it was from Hamburg??

So many new fans of Gilles lately!

They have tons of pics of him on that website, I had never seen them, thanks a lot!
I see they also have a lot of pics of Indianapolis, during matches, in practice, signing, in interviews... The whole audio of his interview in Toronto too.
MERCI! :yeah:

I think Paulo's frenchiness has finally infected me. Now, I am just a tard for all frenchies, maybe except gasquet. His bandwagon is still too full. sooner or later I might even buy rosetta stone to learn the language :o

I'm totally forum-crashing here, but I just wanted to say that Gilles was the second most awesome person this day for me? He was so nice to everyone :yeah: And when I asked if he could sign my ball, he said, "Sure, sure!" In this weird voice, almost Borat-like :lol: I don't know if that was on purpose or :shrug: :lol: But he was so upbeat :lol: And one kid was like, "Gilles! You're too awesome, man! Pound it *they do a fist bump*"

I know, first time I heard it I wanted to giggle but I thought it wasn't polite :o then I heard him chatting with Roger-Vasselin in French and he sounded normal :lol: he comes across as pretty intelligent in his press conferences too :yeah:

Burrow started a thread on GM once to poke fun at his "Donald Duck impression". Now Borat. :sobbing:
He sometimes has weird intonations in English, but I had no idea it's so remarkable. :lol: I hear him speak French most of the time.

Great pics and the last story with the kid is so cute, thanks a lot!

His intonation is fine, I think :lol: it's more to do with how high the pitch of his voice is in English. My voice gets squeakier when I speak in English too, compared to Malay.
