Tougher draw for Gilles in Rome. He has an easy start against Young but then has potential matches against Andujar, Ferrer, then Murray just to get to the semis, a lot of the people he struggles against. Oh well, allez Gilles at least make the third round!

Ugh, Murray. The guy who's basically a better tennis player version of Gilles. At least Gilles wins out hands down on the sexy factor.

Anyway, Realistically I see Gilles being able to get through the first two rounds ok. Then it becomes trickier with Ferrer for sure, but he's still got a chance, but if he gets to Murray, i'm afraid that's where the journey will end because Andy, like I said, is just a better version of Gilles. He does everything just a little bit better. Serve, movement, power etc. Maybe because of the fact that it will be on clay instead of a hard court will be a bit of a factor in Gilles' favor, but I really don't see him getting past Murray. Either way, will be rooting him on and hoping for the best.

We have to hope he's rusty and have Nalbandian or Gasquet take him out!

Allez for Gilles vs Young! Donald has been playing awful lately, plus this is on clay so it shold be an easy win on the paper for Gillou.

Well Tuesday's schedule is up and Gilles will be last up on PIETRANGELI Arena, which is a televised court, (YAY!) . The camera is also really close on that court so you get to be right in tight on the action. Go Gilles!

Hope both of them win, I like to see his friends do well.

Hopefully Gilles isn't too overconfident. No matter how bad Young has played, he has to remain focused.

I wonder how Donald Young got a Top 50 ranking. I can't recall seeing him beat anyone. Well, okay, I'm sure he won some matches, I probably just wasn't paying attention.

And yes, hopefully Gilles keeps his focus. Allez Gilles. Good luck in Rome, hope you stay for the weekend .

Lala, he beat Murray, Melzer, Wawrinka & Monfils last year, and made R4 at USO and F at Bangkok if I recall it correctly.

This is one of the worst sets I've ever seen Gilles play. Young was so bad in the first set it brought Gilles level down I guess.
