Default 2010 Australian season no more. Get Well, Gilles.

I’m a bit confused whether we agree on having a new thread now or later . But since Gilles is already in Australia, I think technically, when he steps on court and plays tennis next week, his season will start. So we need a thread to discuss his haircut , his outfit, his tan, his form, and occasionally his tennis . So let the fun begins.

While we are still debating whether or not he should actually resume his season so quickly without having his injury completely heal, it seems he has already made up his mind to play the Australian Open. He can only be stopped if the pain returns, but we hope that won’t happen. So here’s hoping that he plays thru the whole Australian season without any problem, and gets the Simon Slam rolling.

First stop, Adelaide Exho, Jan 12-14.
http://www.worldtennischallenge.com/index.html
The young guns play single against each other, and then team up with the veteran to play double. So he will have to play what, 6 matches total in 3 days? Wow, quite a lot, hope his knee can handle. The young guys in this exho are Sexy, Ginepri, Tomic & Gilles. Sexy is in top form , Robby beat Toad this week (if it means anything), Tomic is still fighting with Rocky which doesn't help his tennis . I hope Gilles will have a good warmup next week to prepare for AO.




Sorry Les, I try to use the thread name you suggested, but it’s a bit too long to fit. But like you said, we can change it. I’ll see if we need to fine tune the name as the week progress. Maybe if Gilles changes his mind and decides to sit out AO afterall, we’ll have to change the thread name to “AO no more, season to be resumed in March”. We'll see.

I'm losing my memory, what was the deal with the "Simon Slam" again? I remember we used to say that a lot, but I don't remember what it was referring to (and I don't know how to search for an expression with the MTF search feature).

The Simon Slam (iirc) was improving year on year on all his previous Slam results - which he more or less managed to do last season I think anyway!

Thanks for thread Lala! We did need an Oz thread even if we don't get an Oz season! Fingers crossed that he'll be pain free and we'll have lots of magic moments to enjoy

Oh yes, that's it, I remember now, thanks.

The French channel Direct 8 was covering this Adelaide thingie last year, but I don't see it announced this year. It really looked like a "hit-and-giggle" exhibition anyway.

what a great phrase.

I wish he had signed on the Hopman Cup so we would have gotten some pics of the Ball, or Sydney, then we would have seen pics of the players' party, instead, is this Adelaide thing with not even a pic of him on their website . I'm getting impatient.

Nice thread title! I hope his body's survived the transition from freezing Europe to scorching Australia, it's been just over 40 degrees celsius the last couple of days here

I've got tix for the 3 nights, I've never been to one of these events before so not sure what to expect but it should be fun. Will try to get some photos.

Have fun! Please take a lot of pictures.

While I was looking for livestream last nite of Sydney, I came up with nothing but a link that was actually showing Adelaide news, so I watched that . They mentioned the brutal heat, 40 some degree , but they said the temp is going to come down, thank goodness. They have a short segment of the Adelaide Exho, but they only interviewed JMac, and then shown the 2 Pats (Rafter & Cash) practicing. Is this thingy indoor or outdoor?

Edit:
Oh, right. I saw the photo now, it's outdoor, night sessions only and you can watch both matches at the same time , neat!

A lil update on WTC: Gilles lost. He got bageled by Stepanek in the second set. He played quite well in the first set (7-6..there were a few nice winners) but you can tell he's still trying to it easy on his knee. And he says in the post-match interview that he got tired in the second set (which is a worry if he's intending to go to AO). But Gilles was smiling throughout the whole match so that was good. And Stepanek was making jokes(trying rather but I shouldn't be mean ) every five seconds but it got to a point where it just got annoying (at least to me). At 5-0 in the second set, Henri Leconte came on to the court and Gilles threw him his racquet and Leconte played the first point of that game (which he lost by the way). Hopefully he'll get more practice out of the doubles match but I highly doubt it. At least he's having fun!

Thanks for the news, are you in Adelaide? Or did you have TV coverage?
They did the same thing last year when Gaël was losing, he gave his racquet to Leconte who played a couple of points for him.
