Hi guys. Thanks a million for the warm welcome I received. I know it seems weird not posting for five years but I actually completely forgot I'd registered!!! It was only when I went to set up a new account and it told me my e-mail address was already registered that I remembered!!! (No I'm not blonde by the way hah hah!!!) I'm grateful for the welcome and I'm looking forward to trawling through the forums finding out as much about Gilles as I can and hopefully a bit of light-hearted tennis banter

Hi Eimear
I was similar to you in that I'd been registered for years and only made about 10 posts until I started posting in here! Being a Gillou fan turns you into a chatterbox like him .....
I'm Lesley btw

Nice to meet you Alli and Lesley. From your description of the board Alli I have a feeling it's going to fit right in with my personality hah hah!!! I like your avatar Alli. How do I change my avatar to one of Gilles? Where does the nickname Gillou come from btw? I know his nickname is Poussin or something like that but I'd never heard of Gillou until I joined up here. I'm probably going off topic here so if I need to be on another thread discussing stuff I'd be grateful if someone pointed me in the right direction. Right now most of my time is being spent in the pictures thread drooling over the pictures!!!

Welcome around, Eimear!
"Gilou"/"Gillou" is a common nickname for Gilles indeed, I don't think there is a particular reason.
The others really call him that way, afaik. I doubt anybody is calling him Poussin - just to poke fun at him, maybe. Gaël calls him "La Sim" too (like La Monf and La Tsong), but that might be just Gaël. "Gilou" is his common nickname imo, like Ritchie and Jojo.

Default Re: °° Introduce Yourself °° (for Simontards only)

Thanks for your reply Truc and Alli. It make sense that Gillou is just a nickname for Gilles in general. I was half thinking that anyway but it's nice to have it confirmed. Yeah, I know what poussin means (having studied French and lived in France) so I just assumed that was more of a derogatory nickname rather than a friendly one. Thanks for the instructions on how to change my avatar Alli. I'm going to go and do that now!

Default Re: °° Introduce Yourself °° (for Simontards only)

I just discovered this thread ! Since I kind of fell out of nowhere into this forum and forget all the politeness rules by never introducing myself, I'm going to do it quickly ^^

The name is Marion I'm 20 and French (pardon my English !), I'm from a little city in Burgundy but I've been following for 3 years studies of Architecture in Paris. I've been playing tennis since I was 4 years old and I used to be a decent junior. I'm playing a lot less these days, but still enjoying it thoroughly.

My favs are the 4 musqueteers but I can't say which one I prefer I dream of seeing them winning the DC together this year, with Noah as the team trainer. I'm also into Nadal (veeeery much), Murray, Mathieu, Ancic, Baghdatis, and a lot of the young Frenchies (Eysseric, Mannarino).

As for Gilles, I've been following him since around one year and a half and couldn't be more delighted after his sudden explosion at the top. I honestly fall for players because of the personnality they're showing, both on and off court, and not that much for their game (basic fangirl, I know), and Gilles is such an exceptionnal character.
Plus I went to Paris Bercy earlier this year and saw him playing doubles with Monfils on court 1 (the one where you can seat first rank behind the line judges, which is basically awesome, you're two feet away from the players this is where I took the pic of my avatar by the way).
I love Gaël, but I barely took five seconds to look at him since Gilles was so stunningly handsome So yeah, that helps too

So there I am, hi everyone

Thanks for the warm welcome Di (is it a nickname ? It's very cute ! Where is it from ? )
Aha, but you don't need French in your everyday life while I do for English !


Do I sound older, Truc ? I believe I was more acting like the teen fangirl I am deep inside (okay, maybe not that deep)
Actually I turned 20 on the 1st of January so I was 19 when I started posting here ^^

I saw Adrian live against Tursunov in Bercy this year, he got crushed but in a cute way

I don't know why, I figured you were around 30.

"Cute" is the word which comes to mind to describe Adrian on a tennis court indeed!
Let's get ready for another beating against Verdasco...

Default Re: °° Introduce Yourself °° (for Simontards only)

Well, I used to post, but nowadays I read more

Recently discovered this topic, so I'll introduce myself too.

I'm Eliane, 22 and Dutch. I live in the south part of NL, close to Germany and Belgium.
Since September I'm a European law student and in about 6 years I hope to be a lawyer. (Also the reason I don't have time to post a lot )

Ok, on to Gilles... I've been following him since a few years, guess since Thierry became his coach (love him too, but never actually seen him as a player, he was top 10 in my birth year )
I realised I was a fan in 2007 at the Gerry Weber Open. I was watching a first round of Santoro, really small court, so the audience sat on sort of stone stairs. I looked next to me at some point and Gilles just sat right next to me! I didn't notice him sitting down, but when I did, I was so shocked and instantly nervous that I thought I had to be a fan in order to have that reaction Picture of that was posted here somewhere, at least a topic when there wasn't a forum for Gilles
[edit: found the post http://www.menstennisforums.com/show...&postcount=827 ]

My #1 faves are: Arno (& Bruno) Clement, Nico Lapentti and Gilles.
I also was a big fan of Dutchie Fred Hemmes Jr, but he retired for the second time last year, so don't think he's coming back again

Oh, almost forgot to say that I don't play tennis myself and also never played. I started watching tennis around 1999 - 2000 and it became more and more and I went to my first tournament in 2003 (Rotterdam). The number of tournaments I visit also became larger, first only in NL, but now also in Germany (Düsseldorf and Halle, sometimes a challenger nearby) and I've been to Marseille last year
