Well, that's about it too. That one point and the one in the pic. That's enough to make me .
I'm a bit afraid you will have too big expectations now after reading our posts (the match was living on the drama, it might be disappointing when you already know the result). But you managed to enjoy real nightmares like the Hanescu match, so you can't be too disappointed by this one.
I do seem to have slightly lower standards than yourself in that respect Fran!
Maybe because I found Gillou at the point a lot of folk (including him) call the best match of his career (so far anyway) I've subconciously resigned myself to only having glimpses of him playing that well again. Or maybe I'm just so besotted with the guy I would enjoy watching him play tiddlywinks for three hours at a time (although naked Twister might be more fun )
Was that pic during the third set? If not I must've missed it
Yep, it's in the 3rd set, you can't miss it.
When you watch the end of the match, can you pay attention to Nole's UE stats in the 3rd set, please? Gilles talks about it in his post-match interview, he wonders how many errors Nole had in the 3rd.
(Although I'm not sure they give the stats for the 3rd set alone, maybe just for the whole match...)
Thanks Amy,Fran and Les for the captions and pics So much more than just the tennis today from Gillou,some lovely fun stuff too!

I've just read your post Fran and I'm halfway through the third set (I'm loving the match though, it is good to watch!) but Nole was just an error fest up till the point he smashed his racquet. Sky always put an ad break in just where you least want it! Usually over the stats and often cutting the first point after a changeover
