Ah OK

Well I've plenty of patience, I'm not expecting miracles for him and it's obviously going to take a few months for him to get match fit again. On the plus side he's more unfit and therefore quite sweaty so our chances of seeing a shirt change are pretty high

It's looking good for Miami, that's where he changed his shirt for the first and last time during a match, right?

My example was not very good, maybe he also says "saturation point" as "this is more than my body can cope with" and not with reference to the time it takes to get back in form. But he does sound pretty impatient anyway in the few statements I read. Too impatient.

But still, it just isn't right is it, to claim he was 100% ready a few days ago and now physically falling apart like this. He can't be that deluded.

I thought the tournament was to start tomorrow! >_<

I would rather have him watch Kim or Justine's matches when they came back to see how one can get fully prepared. Unlike the mental stuff, the physical aspects of a real match can be reproduced in trainings.

Am I the only one that likes his hair. It's far sexier than his tennis.

Ditto. I'm just thinking it's kind of strange he has to be in match situation to do some rather basic work. It's well known he's never been big on trainings and stuff but at his current level, it means one match per tournament/week, obviously the working will be done at a quite slow pace.

But that's ok, I need time for my new obssession.

I'm not sure if your comment referred to mine, I was talking about IW. Yep I'm totally out of the loop.

He started to play better in Miami and a few months later he was in the Roland SF, it's really not unusual to take a couple of months.

to be honest I don't even know what's best for him right now......to play or to give himself some time to rest the problem with Gillou is that he's too stubborn with pretty much everything

He knows that his comeback in Marseille and Dubai was ridiculously premature, not even able to practice twice a day, aching all over after each practice session - any other player would have skipped those 2 tournaments. It appears he's still not really in shape to play, of course it's frustrating, but it is a bit early to lose his patience already.
I'm fine with him wanting to play tournaments and to test himself on the tour rather than training in Paris, but he has to put things into perspective then.
Thanks Fran, for the news.

I’m glad that Gilles whined about all these, so we at least know what is his problem, which is still mostly physical at this point. On the other hand, he doesn’t have the right to whine then, since he’s the one who’s insisted on coming back way sooner than he should, the consequence is that he has to now suffer even more physically, he's paying for his choice, so he better just suck it up.

Anyway, I’m thinking maybe he overtrained in the past few weeks, pushing his body past the limit in hope of catching up for lost time. It doesn’t work that way obviously, and the body is breaking down. He should listen to his body and stop the “refusing to be injured” nonsense. And that’s really unfortunate if he is now feeling the pressure of not being able to win a match, or even a set. There’s yet another lesson to learn.

Having said all that, wish I can give him a hug though, it’s hard for him. But I have to believe that he has always been able to work his way out of dire situations before, so he will find his way again, eventually, I hope.

I probably need a new obsession too. Not that I'm impatience or anything, but this is going to take a bit more time it seems, I need as much distraction I can get. Alpine Skiing season is over , that doesn't help.
