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.

Re: World Group 1st Round: France at Germany (March 6 - March 8, 2015)

Roger-vasellin is the replacement so the lineup is pretty much decided then, Simon and Monfils and Mahut/ERV for doubles

Re: MTF 2015 Favourite Players Thread

Active:

2. Roger Federer
3. Gael Monfils
4. Vasek Pospisil
5. Dominic Thiem
6. Jack Sock
7. Donald...

Re: 2015 Season Schedule and CHEERING Thread!!!

I've always felt like Indian Wells and Miami are good surfaces for him so he should do well if he's healthy. It really is incredible how few points he had last year before the U.S. open.

On twitter, Gilles said he is playing Davis Cup so he'll be one of the guys on the team.

Re: 2015 Season Schedule and CHEERING Thread!!!

Congrats Gilles :worship:

Well deserved and so exciting to see him with 12 titles! If he stays healthy, maybe he can make one last push for the top 10. He has almost nothing to defend until the...

Re: Marseille F: (5) Simon def. (7) Monfils 6-4 1-6 7-6(4)

I actually think Gael's tactics weren't bad in this match, incorporating the drop shot and bringing Gilles to net was a great strategy. Gilles' game just matches up so well with Gael because he...

Re: Davis Cup 2015

Maybe Jan is trying to sabotage the French team so Germany can win :p

With Gael out, I would think it's likely that Gilles will play singles. Hopefully he can put all his past disappointments...
