Oh well, he tried. This draw sucks.
Rest and pray for a good draw in Shanghai, I guess. At least he'll be seeded there so he won't get a Top 10 in first round.

Tipsy about to get his first ever hard court win over Gilles. I wonder if his knee is still acting up or if it's just one of those days. Either way, first match without Tulasne hasn't proven fruitful.

Gilles

I wish I could have seen the match to know what was up. Hopefully, he was just tired and wasn't used to the conditions. At least now he can prepare properly for the Masters event where he will be seeded.

It's almost comical how he won't rest when he's injured. I think this loss is almost a good thing so that he can have a little bit of time off to heal up for Shanghai and Paris.

Gilles doesn't need a coach, he needs 2 physio.
Well, I actually think he needs maybe a nutritionist, not entirely sure if that will helps. But I think his constant problems with his body needs a revolutionary solution, which is what? I don't know . Maybe he has some deficiency in something, vitamins? minerals? Okay, nevermind me, just brainstorming here with my non-exist medical knowledge. But I really do think he needs to go deeper to try to find out if he can fix it. I remember Rafter used to cramp a lot and he went to see a specialist that tested everything to find out how to fix that cramping problem. So maybe there's a specific reason for Gilles' constant problems too that is fixable?

Anyway, it's useless whatever I say here. But I'm so frustrated hearing his problems, and he's probably about 100 times more frustrated than me since he's actually having to deal with his problems.

As for losing 1st round here, oh well, at least he's not losing to a nobody. Maybe it's not a bad thing. Maybe now that he has a little more time to rest and get over the pain, maybe he'll be able to perform better in Shanghai? Not that I'm holding my breath hoping for that, just cheering myself up imagining some positive possibility.

BTW, not that we got to see what happened yesterday. But based on last week, when he was actually serving well against Tipsy, he didn't give out any break at all. Yesterday, he's back to getting constant pressure at his own serve games. That serve, is always the key.

I read L'Equipe the paper last nite, but having trouble accessing it right now, so I'll post it later if I can. But he basically said the ball was too heavy and it hurts his shoulder, so he couldn't serve after the first set.

His draw in Shanghai:

MURRAY / Bye
TOMIC / MAYER, F
DOLGOPOLOV / CHARDY
MELZER / SIMON

Well, just hope he can win a match... or 2.
Allez Gilles.

Tough draw IMO, he can beat Melzer, but Dolgo/Chardy are going to be really tough, Allez!

Wow! People often over-use the whole "tough draw" remark for Gilles, but in this case, it absolutely is. I mean if he's able to make it past the 1st and 2nd round, which he should I think anyway, his two biggest arch nemeses would more than likely make it through and await him in the 3rd (Murray) and quarterfinals (Gasquet) respectfully. And if by some miracle he was able to get past them, he'd be rewarded with a semifinal against Federer. Siiiigh.

Whenever he's at the round that's supposed to draw 1 of the Top 4, he always got Murray. Just look at how many times he played Andy in the past 3 years compares to playing against Rafa/Fed/Nole. Not saying he can beat the other 3, but he has better chance of getting a win by catching them on a bad day or sth. Against Andy, there is almost no chance. Andy can have a bad day on any given day except the day he plays Gilles, bcos he's way too confident against Gilles given the H2H. Even if Andy's in bad form, he will be able to play well against Gilles bcos of that psychological edge. So anyway, it's just Gilles' luck that he draws Murray yet again in R16. I don't see him pasting Andy in any tournament, sorry, but just being realistic. And in shanghai, I'll be happy if he makes it to R3. Who knows what form Gilles' in. Melzer's form is as unpredictable so I think Gilles does have a good chance in the first round if his body holds up. Then the 2nd round against Chardy/Dolgo (that will be a fun match to watch). These 2 can beat anyone when they are on, except it's hard to predict when they will be on, and most of the time they aren't on. Anyway, I think these 2 rounds could be the easiest or the hardest .

Tomorrow's OP:

Gilles will be second up on Grandstand. The winner gets Dolgo who beat Chardy pretty easily today. Good luck Gilles. It's going to be a tough and possibly short tournament it would seem.
