He's playing Stuttgart and Hamburg on clay first. He'll start his hardcourt season in Toronto in August.

Not entirely the right thread but a final, eh? :D

Barely seen more than a set per match this week unfortunately. Hopefully he'll grind out another one tomorrow though. :yeah:

Still on clay in Stuttgart

Gael started the final poorly, particularly on serve, injured his ankle towards the end of the first set. Better serving allowed him to go up 2-1 in the second set, but movement was clearly hampered and he retired afterwards.

Rasheed shaking his head in desperation after Gael squandered a 6-5 lead against Devvarman in Toronto, got rebroken to love.

Could have friend and doubles partner Kohly in R2 in cincy.

Pathetic showing.

Might sound a bit melodramatic, but I'm starting to think the next couple of months could be make or break for Gael's career.

Right now he's living off points from a strong end to last year, if he doesn't defend at least some of them he will probably drop down in the rankings to around the #30 mark. Given his injury problems, coupled with an awful mental attitude to the game of late, I'd really not be confident about seeing him turn it around :/

I've sort of felt this way for a while (in regards to this season in general), but you could turn it around and say well maybe a drop down the rankings would be something that would motivate him and get a bit more fire in him as well I think. He's too difficult to predict at any rate, I think if anyone on this forum were to try and plan out his remaining career path they'd have an abysmal success rate. :lol:

Well, he might have picked up some valuable points so I guess we can ignore my worries on ranking for a while yet but...

...He has to reevaluate what on earth he's doing with his tennis. Even given the conditions, his performance has just been abysmal today.

He's in final of Tokyo vs Nadal. His best tournament of the year outside DC. Strange to see that gael will be i think the n1 french guy in the ranking next week but in menstennisforums one of the french with less comments :lol:
