I'm pretty sure this is the worst match I've seen him play this year. Petszchner really isn't doing anything that well but Gilles is missing everything.

Guess that's why he doesn't take too many breaks during the season. A couple of weeks off the court and he forgot how to play.

This is looking bad. C'mon Gilles, get it together.

4-1 now. He really should have played Washington to get rhythm on the hardcourts because this would be an awful loss. He has a reasonable draw with no points to defend and he blows it.

Well, that's it.

It's not the end of the world but it still sucks loads to lose first round in a big event.

I don't understand him. He doesn't gain confidence after winning tournament, no momentum at all. Maybe he really should have played Washington, esp that it was such a easy field last week. Oh well, play better next week, that's all he can do now.

7-5, 6-2. I hope he was sick or something .

You can't really take anything from this match because everything was awful. It's disappointing because the top 10 is so close but he needs to pick it up at the big events if he really wants to get back to where he was at number 6.

It's good he's playing the doubles so he can get at least another match in here.

he's definately not a confidence/momentum guy..he needs matches to get himself in rythym so i guess this was somewhat to be expected

hopefully cincinnatti and US open go better

It's a first round, he should not lose in first round if he wants to be back on top, big or small events. Yet, it's the 5th times he lost 1st round this year. Inconsistency is the only constant in this season.

a stiff neck for Gilles which happened during the warm-up according to this:

J'ai fait de mon mieux, qui n'était pas énorme aujourd'hui. Mon cou s'est raidi à l'échauffement et je ne pouvais jouais comme je voulais. J'avais peur de me blesser, peur que la blessure survienne. J'essaierai d'être prêt pour Cincinnati. S'il la douleur disparaît, ça ira. Autrement, je devrai attendre jusqu'à l'US Open."

Damn neck again, well at least that explains the terrible play.

Hope he's better for Cincy but if not, he shouldn't push it because I want him to be 100% for the Open.

At least he didn't have a load of points to defend. Correct me if i'm wrong, but I think he has entered the top ten!

Shame if he's having trouble with his neck again, I would prefer it if he was just plain crap. I thought his neck troubles had cleared up

Well, Cinci next week. Let's see what he can do.

(Oh and MsTree, I feel for you both Gillou and Andy )
