Default 2009 Grass Season ~ well done Gillou for best grass season yet :D

Can we dare to have a grass season thread? Truc reported that the injury with his knee is not as serious as it looked....

I love the grass season, to start with, Wimbledon fortnight was the only time I ever got to watch tennis when I was young and I completely associate it with Scotland's all too brief summers, being light all night, eating strawberries like they're going out of fashion, drinking ice cold cider in the garden etc etc etc

So to get us started, Gillou has committed to the Aegon Championships @ Queens

I love this one, it is like he is saying "Come with me darling; we have a mission to do today..."
He has always nice pictures about his relationships with his raquet

Yes in French grass is "herbe"

Default Re: 2009 Grass Season

I love grass season and I'm so glad to hear Gillou's knee injury is not serious, since I'm going to be at Queens.

The 2nd time I saw Gilles live was at Wimbledon 07, losing in 5 sets to Youzhny. It was a really fun match.

Good luck to Gilles on the grass.
