Gilles, take your prize money and get a new coach asap!

It seems like Llodra only gets in the mood to actually play great tennis against Gillou and French tournaments. Any other time Llodra loses to no names getting bageled. On to Wimbledon

I know, eh. It's infuriating . But then, he seems to be in a great form lately though, so Gilles has no chance when he himself is not that in shape. But anyhow, I like Mika so I hope he plays well in Wimby (as long as he's not in Gilles' path ).

I'm the only cheerleader for Tulasne here . He's so smitten by Gilles he just can't help it , cut him some slack .

While not exactly a cheerleader I think it's completely sweet that he loves Gillou so much
But I have to say that being in love with your protege is maybe not the best quality for a coach

As always, he was soft-soaping Gilles' peformance. Actually, for the last year and a half, the only time I remember him saying something remotely negative about Gilles' performance was about his win against Ljubo at Bercy, when he was slicing and dropshotting out of his mind. Tulasne didn't like the "bluff show" he put up.

His reaction in L'Equipe today:
Quote:
Gilles Simon, sans être « furieux » , avait l'air très déçu : « Dès qu'il y a des coups où il faut être précis, des passings pas spécialement durs, des amorties où j'étais dessus cent, je paniquais un peu. » Il a le diagnostic sévère : « La clé, c'est le jeu vers l'avant. En trois matches, je n'ai pas fait un seul point gagnant ! J'ai tenu ma ligne. Mais l'attaque qui part bien, oser venir poser une volée, même facile, j'en ai été incapable. Je mesure ce qu'il me reste à faire en quatre jours d'ici Wimbledon ! La moindre attaque me fait peur ! »
He was not "furious", but looked very disappointed: "Each time I need to be more accurate, each time I had to hit a passing-shot which was not particularly difficult, or to find the answer to a dropshot I had reached with ease, I got a bit panicky." He is quite harsh with himself: "The key is the forward game. I haven't hit one single winner in 3 matches! I held my own from the baseline. But I was unable to play an effective attacking shot, I didn't dare to play a volley, even easy ones. I realize all the things I'll have to improve in 4 days until Wimbledon! The slightest attacking shot scares me!"

It was pretty terrible indeed to see him always play a completely harmless groundstroke when it looked like the court was wide open, there was no punch at all in his shots then, not one of those "coups de fusil" ("rifle shots") he likes so much.
