Re: 2015 Season SCHEDULE and CHEERING Thread!!!

Congrats Gilles! I've been busy with work so I've missed both his matches so far. I'll be watching him play Gael even if it's painful.

Re: 2015 Season SCHEDULE and CHEERING Thread!!!

Gilles entered Kitzbuhel? I don't understand this decision at all.

Oh well, good luck Gilles in the quarters, so happy to see him playing well on the grass. Will be tough against Querrey though.

Re: Who is the biggest Grand Slam underachiever in the top 20 ?

The odd thing about Gilles is he has a very good winning percentage at grand slams, top 20 of all active players. He almost never loses early and makes the fourth round a lot. The problem is he...

Re: Queen's Club SF: Anderson def. Simon 6-3 6-7(6) 6-3

Anderson has got to be the most boring player in the world to watch but credit to him because he played an amazing match on serve. He was unplayable at times in his service games.

Well that was quite the serving display by Anderson, nothing Gilles could really do. Good effort and good tournament.

Re: Nottingham MD

If Gilles makes the finals of Queens he should withdraw.

Re: 2015 Season SCHEDULE and CHEERING Thread!!!

Yeah, this is looking like it will be a tournament to get a match or two under his belt and not one where he will make a big run. Oh well, I'd rather he have the hard draw here and an easy one at...

Re: 2015 Season SCHEDULE and CHEERING Thread!!!

2nd time in 3 majors that Gilles draws the eventual champion. I don't know whether to feel good or bad about that :p. Either way, good luck on the grass, I'm glad he's playing some doubles with...

I Couldn't watch because my parents were in town but it sounds like there wasn't much he could do. As you said, hard to be too upset but it is disappointing that the weathe conditions likely helped...

Re: 2015 Season SCHEDULE and CHEERING Thread!!!

I like this schedule. The pressure shouldn't be too bad as most people will be focused on Tsonga and Monfils-Federer.

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

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.
