Thanks for the info.
I was just thinking about what his summer schedule would be like. I think he will need/play one ATP250, hopefully it won't be New Haven, but rather something like Atlanta which is better in the schedule and not many top players show ;). But he may just go to Stuttgart like he did last year, which don't make any sense. Well, as long as he's healthy by then, doesn't matter which tourney he plays.

I really don't think he will make a decision until late next week. Because nothing has changed since last time he talked to the press. I mean, if he sticks to his words, he's not picking up the racket until next week, so he won't know what kind of shape he is in until then, will take at least a couple of practice session for him to see he's in no shape any shape to play.

He has committed to Hamburg, it's confirmed in the German media.

If he decides to play Queens, I can give reports, cause I'm going. :)
If anyone has questions for players, you can tell me.
I can't promise I'll get them answered, cause I don't plan to stay at the tourney all day, but I can try. Never been to London before, so I also want to see the city a little and I'm only there for 3 days. :)

That's cool you're going to Queens. :D Looks like you're next up to work on getting the list of Gillou questions answered. :lol:

If you happen to see Lu while you are there, will you take a few photos of him for me? :D

He entered Stuttgart.

So I'll be in D.C. for the event. Hopefully he actually plays it (and it's not 120 degrees this year).

If it gets too hot, just take off your shirt and reverse your camera. :shrug:

So some of you will go to Wimby? I guess?
And maybe Fran will attend the German events in July? Scot goes to DC, a lot of tourneys are covered then, just as long as he shows.


He's going to the exho before Wimby, the one he attended last year I think:

well, I mean, that's the intent, and hopefully, he really can show up there to get some practice before the big one.

Did he cancel Queens already or is it still the plan that he shows up there?
I'm going mon-wed, so I can report if I see him. :)

It's too expensive to just willingly break it like that.

Why would it break if you takes pics of yourself instead of players? :scratch:

I'm not sure, smucav has updated the Entry List today and he's still in. Maybe his knee is holding up better now and he maybe able to play? I don't know. We'll see, the latest when the draws come.

:wavey:

Gilles doesn't really announce his schedule. This is just a list Fran put together based on his known commitments to tournaments plus the required tournaments. We'll see if he goes to Valencia, I hope so, I like that beautiful brand new stadium there.

Wow. Never a good sign to sign up for 6 tourneys in a roll :rolleyes:, doesn't sound confident to last long in each one. But I guess he has to make up for lost time. Checking on the ranking, he should just made it to MD of Shanghai when the entry list comes out next week. I don't think he will make Bercy without a WC. But anyway, it's a long time to Bercy, anything can happen.


Thanks Soulage for the clip!

think I understand most of that news, except this:

même quand il a affronté Nalby à Washington, il ne m'en a pas parlé

not sure what they are referring to, was it regarding Davis Cup, do they mean he didn't say if he's going to play Davis Cup? Or sth else?

Can any French speaker help? Thanks.

Guy Forget selected Gilles for the Davis Cup SF on Sept 17-19, take place at Lyon, France. Not sure if Gilles wants to go though. We'll see.

He is not on the entry list of Stockholm, either he regains some sense to decide a schedule of 6 consecutive tournaments is silly, or he just simply forgot to enter :p. But at the moment, he hasn't enter any tournament the week after Shanghai.

10/4 Beijing
10/11 Shanghai
10/18 -----
