Allez Gilles against Melzer! The austrian can play really well, but he hasn't done it lately, so hope he's fit and can win the match.

Well done Gilles! Dolgo is going to be a lot tougher though and he'll need to play better than he did today to beat him, but he can do it!

Did anyone see the match, how'd Gilles look?

Next round will be tough but he really needs to beat players like Dolgopolov to be considered a top 15 player. He's one of the people around him in the rankings that he's fighting with for points.

Yeah I saw the match. Physically, Gilles looked pretty good, and he played pretty well during the rallies, but he didn't serve particularly well. It wasn't a pace issue, just that he missed a lot of first serves. Likewise, Melzer wasn't really playing very well in the match. He made a lot of errors during the rallies and double faults and wasn't really attacking Gilles' weaker 2nd serve. Dolgo will because that's just his playing style. He is a player who is always looking to attack, so it's going to be a lot tougher for Gilles unless he starts serving a little better and is more aggressive against Dolgo's service games.

Tomorrow's OP:

Bad news for us I think, but Gilles will be 2nd up on Union Pay Court 3.

I'm not sure if that court has a stream or not. Does anybody know? I'm thinking probably not unfortunately. Will be a hell of a match to have to miss if so.

Yeah, I don't think so either. Shanghai has the worst order of play, why do they wait until Wednesday to have all the top players play? Oh well, it's probably better for my sleep habits to not have to get up around 4 am. Hopefully he can pull it off!

Well, I wake up to see that Gilles lost pretty routinely yet again to Dolgo. Gilles what's happening to you man? He's got to find "it" again on a more consistent basis instead of just spurts here and there or his rankings going to continue to fall and it's just going to keep on getting tougher meeting better players earlier in the draws as a result.

didn't see the match but it was much more one-sided than the scoreline suggested, at least from following the tracker. dolgo's service games went by with a blink of an eye, really, i was turning to a different window and by the time i got back it was all over. he had 1 game in which he struggled but that's just about it. was lucky it didn't end 1 and 2 or something like that

Not being able to see the match is frustrating. Dolgo could have been on fire and nothing Gilles could have done, although I highly doubted that scenario, since Dolgo was hardly in good form lately. They probably both played mediocre and loose play at crucial points made the difference. The BP conversion stat is again very discouraging. I'm not holding my hope up for the remaining 2 tournaments. Seems like he won't be able to get back to Top 15 and most likely won't be able to hand on to 16th either (would have been good for a good seeding in AO). Oh well. There's always next year.

The thing about Gilles, he seems to always be able to turn things around when he's at the brink of totally losing hope. So let's hope it will happen again.

P.S. just read what Gilloulou wrote. So maybe Dolgo was on fire . Or Gilles was pitiful in his own play, who knows. Oh well.

He was not optimistic after his win against Melzer he has pains everywhere. With all these body issues I don't know what he can hope

Thanks Soulage, for the news clip.

Well, in that case, I'm glad he lost. Can't stand seeing another lackluster performance from him against his biggest nemesis namely Murray. If he can't be healthy to play Andy, then it's better he doesn't get to play him .

But why does he continue playing if he has pains everywhere?

more important, i'm planning a trip to the AO but this will be disastrous if he's in bad shape! tell him to get a grip on his act!

That's a question that we all ask but I guess it's because he knows it can't get worse so why not pick up a couple of points here and there. He has next week off so hopefully he'll come back rejuvenated for his last two tournaments. It's not the end of the world but it looks like he won't finish the year in the top 16.
