It's the thread!

So happy for him. Definitely feel a win vs Nalbandian would be even more huge so he'll need a much higher first serve %. ALLEZ GILLES.

Agreed. It would have been nice for Tennis Channel to interrupt their re-run of an old match to tell us why this match was not being broadcast.

What I saw from the first set last night:

Both were hitting a little tentatively at first. I figure it’s because they didn’t get a chance to warm up since all of the courts were soaked all day. I think that Gillou knows how to look cute for the crowd to get them to like him. Early on (not sure during which game), he made a challenge (that juuuuuust barely didn’t go his way) and was saying something to the chair all jokingly and smiling. I couldn’t hear what he was saying. People in the crowd on the side he was on were laughing.

After he held onto his first service game, he started to step it up and was hitting his trademark hard, flat shots. He was being really patient and waiting for the right moments too. Some jacka$s sitting near me was calling him a pusher right before he ripped a rocket-fire forehand winner. There were some awesome rallies, Gilles’ movement was great and he was playing aggressively and doing it all better than Andy. He was also returning well. Sure, Roddick had a few aces but Gillou was getting ones back that most others probably wouldn’t.

Alleeeeeez Gillou
Great report!

Also, I've attended several tournaments in the US over the years. Andy seems to be a favorite of drunks, who like to yell more loudly as the evening continues. It's not his fault. Fortunately there are few such jacka$ses, but there always seems to be one at his evening matches. At one tournament people asked him to be quiet or leave.

Amaze.

But of course, no video to get hold of.

I'm glad he's smiling on court, it's a good sign.


I'm so excited that you get to see the Nalby/Gilles match later on today. It's gonna be an awesome match, I hope. Have fun and please yell a loud Allez to him for all of us .

I've discovered that I need to get a tree cut down before I can get my satellite reception back again so I hope there's a good livestream! And no rain tonight!

Shame on me for not having much faith in Gilles . Surely he can do it. C'mon Gilles.

Let's focus on the current task. Please win tonite against King David. Allez Gilles, Allez!
