THE pictures thread
 
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). :)

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:

Here is the scan from the "Mousquetaires de réserve" article I translated a few weeks ago in his thread, I think we only had the smaller version so far:

And yes, that's Winogradsky ( :drool: ) in that RG 2005 pic, Brego.
OK, enough spammed now. :angel:

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 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):

Re: THE pictures thread

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.

I have photos of Gilles that I haven't posted yet, I think :scratch: (including the one where you drooled all over my Facebook, Fran :p) I'll try to post them ASAP.
