Default Welcome back Gilles ~ onwards and upwards to Dubai :)

OK Let the rollercoaster begin - since it's been left to a jinxer to start the thread, don't expect too much from Gillou
(Did you see what I did there? )

First up Marseille. The draw is out
http://www.atpworldtour.com/posting/2010/496/mds.pdf

Gillou is in Jo's quarter, R1 against Ollie Rochus.

I only edited the title.
I see what you did there is defined in Urban dictionary http://www.urbandictionary.com/defin...%20did%20there but on this occasion I was using it to show that I'd laid a cunning anti jinx by jinxing Gilles twice (once by starting the thread, twice by saying don't expect too much). Sorry for any confusion caused!

i know what you meant poor Les
maybe you can find some tricks to converse the jinx
have you ever tried cursing him and see the result?


edit: lol so you're trying this anti jinx , hope it works

Good luck Gillou!

If Misha is a good boy today, I'll have plenty of v-cash to jinx little Rochus back to the locker room. Vamos!

OK enough about jinxes

Eurosport have almost redeemed themselves from their awful AO coverage, they'll be broadcasting some matches from Marseille

It's a rather complicated jinxing formula you have there, Les . Hope it works.

Not a bad draw for him to ease back into action, and then Jo .

Good luck, Gilles.

Default Re: Welcome back Gilles ~ Marseille ~ European indoor season 2010

I hadn't seen this article in La Provence (the local newspaper) on Friday:
http://www.laprovence.com/article/to...min-des-courts

He says he felt the pain in his knee before RG for the first time. And he's been playing through the pain since then. Sometimes it was bearable, sometimes it was unbearable.
He had an MRI on last Thursday and the lesion now is very small. Loads of players play with this kind of injuries.
He now has 3 times more strength in his right leg than in 2007.
Being less muscular than many players also is a strength of his anyway (exactly, I hope he hasn't gained too much muscular mass because they often lose speed then, it was my first thought by reading the articles on Friday about all the body-building!)
He's not worried about the state of his game. He just can't wait to be able to play at full speed again.
Maybe it will turn out that this comeback in Marseille is too early, but it's not a problem, it will just mean he needs 2 more weeks of training then. If he feels pain, it will be because an inflammation of the sinew, but not because of the lesion. He insists that he can't injure himself again at this stage.
The 3 months off were not hard to take. He had never had a break in 5 years, always moving up in the rankings. So having 3 months off is not the end of the world. It gave him the chance to do exercises he can't do otherwise.
He says it's also a money matter when they play tournaments every week at the risk of getting injured. Not only the prize money, but the guarantees. It applies to himself too, let's be honest. It would be a good thing to take 3 weeks off 2 or 3 times a season. The current calendar allows this.
