So if I am correct, his next tournament should be the Rogers Cup in Montreal starting on August 10.

That's a lot of time without competition for someone who unfortunately hasn't played much lately.

All top players has to play Cincy, so he will too. Cincy is the week after Montreal.

I hope he play better in the Hardcourt-Season and can stay in the Top 10!

Please look on the following link, on his profile you can read, that his favorite surface is clay, is that right?

Yes, it is right.

Here's another interview from April where he says it very clearly ("Clay, my favourite surface"):
http://www.lequipe.fr/Tennis/breves2...-preferee.html
«C'est la surface que je préfère. De loin. Quand je me sens bien, c'est la surface où je me sens le plus fort» (= It's the surface I like the most. By far. When I feel well, it's the surface where I feel the strongest.)

Not much of a surprise, he grew up on clay and as the ball moves rather slowly off the court, it's probably the best surface for him to deal with ballbashers.

Good luck Gilles and lets hope a return to hardcourts brings back memories of his terrific run last season on HC and brings some better form and better results. I'm with you all the way Gillou!!!

If he loves hard courts so much, why not play in LA? This should be good practice heading into Montreal and Cincy.

He likes hardcourts too, but the quote was about clay.

I don't get why a lot of people assume he would have kicked ass big time if he had played the US hardcourt events.
Remember when he won Indianapolis last year, it was such a struggle, he had to go the distance in each match (except the final), he only made it to the final because Haas flipped his lid and Querrey collapsed physically... His only good match of the week was the final.
