TV is not showing the match here, but it sounds painful to watch. I wonder if Gilles told himself before the match began that he should win this match because his opponent is hardworking but not very talented, and he is determined to pick up these points. As you say the statistics show he is really not able to serve and I hope he doesn't ruin his shoulder simply by being stubborn.

He leads 3-2 in the 4th with a break. He'll need at least 2 breaks up to win a set. I mean, it's a miracle that he doesn't get broken more often than he is, serving like this. C'mon Gilles, you aren't going to give up anyway, you must win to make it worth the trouble, the misery you are putting your fans thru.

You can watch it on USO's official website, they stream live, that's what I'm watching now. It ain't pretty though, as you can imagine.

BTW, I'm not looking at the stat, I'm looking at the radar meter after every serve.

Oh, and he got broken. so back on serve.

I don't blame him for trying his luck against Russell, I thought he could beat him without a serve. But Gilles is also missing more than a serve, so it's iffy but still it's possible.

Thanks, Lalaland. I had checked espn3.com but they didn't have it.

Unbelievable - he got another break! >3.5 hours--grueling. At least it is not hot in NY.

Good job, Gilles. But he needs an early break in the fifth and to try to keep the set short. At least they have a tiebreak rule at the US Open so they won't be tortured by having to play forever.
