Allez Gilou! :cheerleader:

Allez Gilles :yeah: ! Not a bad draw IMO, Flo Mayer could be a nightmare for Gilles on the QF's, hope Giraldo or Baghdatis takes him out, and I think Gilles can beat Raonic if he plays his best. One match at a time though, Falla can be dangerous when on.

well he should definately be able to beat levine/falla and make the QF. It kind of sucks because he got stuck in the loaded quarter with 4 of the title contenders all in there.

good luck to him

Gillouthe best 01-01-2013 10:29 AM

It will be Falla tomorrow on court 1.

His schedule:

11:00 am.

Hantuchova/ Srebotnik vs Pavlyuchenkova/Safarova
Stephens vs Arvidsson
Simon vs Falla

Allez Gilles against Falla! I remember he had a bit of a tough time vs him on Cincy 09', hope he wins!

Gilles, the number 3 seed at the tournament and semifinalist there from last year, yeah, let's put him on court 1. Just ridiculous. Well, so much for being able to watch his first match of the new year I guess.:rolleyes:

Re: 2013 Australia, new adventure begins in Down Under
 
Well I guess there is a stream for Court 1 after all, but it is pretty bad. A fixed camera on only one side of the court with no following of the players and horrible resolution. Gilles won the first set 7-6 and is up a break in the 2nd set. Hope he can close it out in straight sets.

Re: 2013 Australia, new adventure begins in Down Under
 
He won 7-6 7-6, not too impressive, felt like he's still trying to get back to game form, and he DF on MP :rolleyes:. But then, he won 2 TBs, that I consider a good start for the year :yeah:. Good luck next round. Allez.

Re: 2013 Australia, new adventure begins in Down Under
 
I'll take it. 1st match is never easy, so to win in straights but to be pushed also is ideal. Nice to start off with a qtr final in 1st tournament of the year also.

falla taking a medical time out in the 2nd set tie break was pretty bad.

Gillouthe best 01-02-2013 10:49 AM

Re: 2013 Australia, new adventure begins in Down Under
 
Nice win for Gilles :yeah: , he didn't crumbled under pressure on TB's and he was also good on BP's, 3/4 converted and 6/9 saved.

mike s. 01-02-2013 12:42 PM

Re: 2013 Australia, new adventure begins in Down Under
 
Congrats Gilles, didn't see it but it's good to get a straight sets win and to win two tiebreaks. I think Baghdatis is next, would be nice to get a semi in the first tournament back.

misty1 01-02-2013 01:01 PM

Re: 2013 Australia, new adventure begins in Down Under
 
well given the fact that he struggled so badly with tiebreaks last year its nice to see him win 2 this year

keep going gillou:)

Gillouthe best 01-03-2013 08:19 PM

Gilles up tomorrow on Pat Rafter Arena ( CC) vs Baggy.

Schedule:
11:30 am. - Simon vs Baghdatis

Allez Gilles against Baggy! He better watch out, H2H is 2-2 and Baggy usually looks really good in Oz, hope he can win!
