:yeah: Kezzi. Great title.

Hopefully he does well enough in Queen's to get prepared, more importantly is a good draw (please, tennis god). He's currently at 16, so the chance of him remaining at 16 for seeding and actually ends up as 16th seed is quite high. However, looking at the players at 17-24th ranked (DelPo and Nalby :scared:), I think 9-16 ranked players maybe easier to play against at the moment :lol:. And lots of dangerous floaters, Dr Ivo/Isner to name a few... ah, well, we'll see.

Allez Gilles, hopes he mows the lawn/wipes the floor ;) with the competition .

Love the thread title Kezzi! :) I hope it brings him luck ;) I'm with you lala, kind draws would be lovely!

My favourite time of the tennis year :D I may even be going to Wimbledon this year if i'm lucky! :D I would go to queens too but it's right in the middle of my final exams :sad: it's hard knowing all my favourites will be playing just two hours away and I can't go, it's tempting, but i really shouldn't. (Like lala I have never seen Gilles irl :p) I won't be moaning about tv coverage with these tourneys though :woohoo:

Allez Gilles!! Let's start with a title!! .. too much to ask? :p

I'm going to Eastbourne, so I'm praying he takes a wildcard or something.

I love watching Wimbledon on TV, I just don't always like the guys that seem to do the best on it. :p

Hopefully Gilles can make a deep run this year.

Draw for Queens is up. Gilles pulled a dangerous floater in the third round - Delpo!! :sad: It's a really strong draw so I guess nothing would have been easy.
Possible second round meeting with Gulbis, shouldn't be a problem..
I love it when Gilles gets byes :p
Allez Gillou!

Delpo usually struggles on grass, but you never know, if gilles is motivated i see him at qf or sf

id like to see him and adrian in the 2nd round..as much as it means adrian would have to beat ernests and i do hate that part..

but adrian likes the grass right? so it could be an interesting match

About Mannarino in grass, i dont think he is very good on grass, in 2010 he has Q3 in Wimbledon as best result( l. to Huta Galung) and SF in Nottingham CH(l. to Berankis). In 2009 qualified to Wimbly and lost in R1 and advanced to Q3 in Queens and QF in Nottingham. I think it should be a routine win for Gilles, but Mannarino is french, and Gilles struggles against them, but he defeated Chardy last week in RG.

Offtopic: why does Gilles seem to struggle when playing people from his own country? :confused:

Just been watching Queens, cameras have been on Murray on the practise courts and Gillou is on the one behind. Seems to be sharing a court with Delpo, Stepanek and Turnsunov (i think) plus all their coaches...crowded court!! He looked happy :p
