Re: 2015 Season SCHEDULE and CHEERING Thread!!!

That was a mess of a set but finally pulled it out.

Re: 2015 Season SCHEDULE and CHEERING Thread!!!

I only saw the third and fourth sets but from what I saw, I thought it was a solid performance and he didn't look hampered to me. Hopefully Gilles can keep it going.

Re: 2015 Season SCHEDULE and CHEERING Thread!!!

Honestly, his draw is about as easy as one can get and it's so frustrating because Gilles likely won't be able to take advantage of it because of the injury :rolleyes:

Re: 2015 Season SCHEDULE and CHEERING Thread!!!

Hopefully he gets a Tuesday start. A part of me hopes that he's overstating his injury to take the pressure off.

Re: 2015 Season SCHEDULE and CHEERING Thread!!!

Yeah, I said this was 50-50 at best considering Sock's form so this is a really good win for Gilles.

Re: 2015 Season SCHEDULE and CHEERING Thread!!!

Yeah, that Sock match is 50-50 at best. Although I think he should beat Boelli or Thiem and Wawrinka is a good seed if he gets through the first round.

Re: French players Ouanna, Burquier, Obry call it a career

Here's an article about Ouanna, Simon, Monfils and Tsonga from 2009 about rising up the ranks and their friendship. It's...

Re: 2015 Season Schedule and CHEERING Thread!!!

Tough draw in Bucharest considering the field. Tipsarevic, Troicki, then Karlovic to get to the finals.

Re: 2015 Season Schedule and CHEERING Thread!!!

I didn't get to see it but I'm with Sammy, I thought he would get destroyed by Ferrer here so I'm glad he fought. The tiring in long matches does seem to be more and more of an issue though with...

Re: 2015 Season Schedule and CHEERING Thread!!!

This was a mental hurdle so I'm glad to see him get through it even if there were a lot of breaks. Beating Ferrer on clay doesn't seem likely but hope he can somehow pull it off.

Re: 2015 Season Schedule and CHEERING Thread!!!

It's incredibly disrespectful to Gilles. You can't tell me the French crowd would rather watch Berdych or Raonic than an all-french match-up. I'm used to it but it must be very frustrating for...

Re: Dolgopolov calls gays "not normal" on Twitter, goes on homophobic rant on Instagr

Wow, you have some serious issues. One of my group of friends came out about five years ago and he is still as close with everyone as before. My guess is he stopped being comfortable around you...

Re: 2015 Season Schedule and CHEERING Thread!!!

In my opinion, It's both his best and worst surface. If he's confident and constructing points, he will do very well. If he's not confident and too passive, he'll be bullied around the court. I'm...

Re: 2015 Season Schedule and CHEERING Thread!!!

Did he just give up in the second set? I wasn't able to watch. Disappointing to say the least based on your comments.

Re: Which Miami R4 match is more interesting?

Even taking into account my bias, I don't find Simon-Ferrer bad at all. Both their US Open and Australian Open matches were dramatic and compelling with some fun rallies.

Re: 2015 Season Schedule and CHEERING Thread!!!

These courts suit him so much more than Indian Wels because the ball doesn't fly on him. I feel like he's more in control of his shots here.

Re: 2015 Season Schedule and CHEERING Thread!!!

I'm with you, even though he's a good returner, he's terrible against big servers later in his career because he often loses focus on serve early in sets. I am praying that Falla wins, otherwise I...

Re: Articles & interviews

Short interview from Gilles in English. I like how he describes himself as an idiot :lol:

Re: 2015 Season Schedule and CHEERING Thread!!!

I kind of want to see Gilles play doubles in Davis Cup where he would be extra motivated to win to see if he really is this bad at doubles or he just doesn't care about it in the regular tour events....

Re: 2015 Season Schedule and CHEERING Thread!!!

Apparently johnson was ill which explains the loss. It should help Gilles but Kukushkin can be tough if he's on.

Absolutely horrible draw, oh well. I guess it's better here than at a major.

Re: 2015 Season Schedule and CHEERING Thread!!!

I know, I'd be fine with the other three which means he'll get Raonic.

Re: 2015 Season Schedule and CHEERING Thread!!!

There's a balance though and at times it felt like he was just slapping at the ball and hoping. As Sammy said, hopefully he takes the positive from this week.

Unfortunately he is just horrible today, oh well. I guess it was a decent week but this is a very disappointing performance.

Re: 2015 Season Schedule and CHEERING Thread!!!

Nadal is playing much, much better and Gilles has no control over his shots so that's how you ejd up with a 6-2 set like this.
