“Database errors” galore again.
I don't have time for a proper translation, sorry, and it's not easy to summarize because there aren't many facts, it's all about Gilles describing his current state of mind, which is pretty confused.
They interviewed him yesterday after a 2 hours practice session, the journalist doesn't really comment on his game, just says he was talking a lot!
Gilles says he can't assess at all his current level. But he should stop thinking so much about it too, he's always wondering on the court: "how did I use to play my FH/BH in this situation? Did I use to attack on this kind of ball?" etc.
He says it's too hard to admit that his game won't be back over night. Going into a match thinking "I'm going to lose today" is not the right approach anyway, he needs to be able to play for the win - but without judging on himself as much as he's doing atm.
He says that he might have a 3-0 record against Korolev, but it hasn't always been easy, he had to run so much in their match in Bangkok last year.
The journalist noticed that he was not chasing down all the balls yesterday in training, as if he was afraid to hurt himself. Gilles: "No, that's not the point. I've just gotten out of the habit. It's subconscious. 'Knots in my mind' I need to untie. There's anxiety, too. I have the impression that if the guy is dictating the rallye, I won't be able to run and it's going to end up badly for me. I do everything I can to prevent him from being in control of the game, while it used to be a tactic in the past, I was doing it deliberately... I'm not completely confident/serene yet."

he is really struggling with his serve

8 double faults and going at 41% overall, including only 22 % in the 3rd set

broken after being 40-15 up in the 3rd

1st win of the year, in Gilles Simon fashion no less, down a break in the 3rd and a breakpoint away from down 2 breaks but he toughed this one out. Thanks Gilles, you just make my day and my day hasn't even started . Now I'm going to back to bed.

i really didnt think he stood a chance after he double faulted 3 times to open the 3rd set and wasted 0-40 at 1-2down in the 3rd

next up is andrey kuznetsov. Last years junior wimbledon champion, he has come through qualifying and has been playing really well.

This could be a tricky one for gilles and if andrey keeps serving like he has been, and gilles does like he did today then i could actuuly see gilles losing.

Yes!

Did anyone actually watch the match or are the infos above just scoreboard and stats datas? I hope the result was not just Zhenya's being his usual hopeless.

All SB watching, there's no stream.

Gilles was down a break in each of the 3 sets and he managed to get back. I'm sure Zhenya helps a lot to let him back in. He's serving lower than 50% (I can't say that's unusual though ). And he has like 9 DFs . All and all, I can't imagine this is a pretty match to watch. But a win is a win .

Unlike you, I can always imagine him losing . But I hope he wins at least 1 more match. Allez Gilles.
