Gilles is hitting his groundstrokes pretty well today. There is hope yet. He's doing a good job at getting ahead in Wang's service games, he just needs to play more offensively. And I just love his backhand, it's so flat.

Man all these dang errors from Gilles. That's the problem right now.

Last match, I really felt that he couldn't do much. This match, I think he's not trying hard enough. I don't know, but he could do more to put some pressure on Jimmy on those rally. C'mon Gilles, wake up.

He's already cranking more serves over 100mph compared to last match. He's just being a little to sloppy on his ground strokes right now.

But then, it also seems that every time he goes for a shot, he hit an UE.

That was a good hold from Simon. Wang has definitely started to hit the ball harder and flatter and Gilles needs to be a little bit more aggressive himself.

Well, I think if he’s not able to hold serve, that’s not because he can’t serve. I mean, the slow serve is not what’s hurting him. The thing with Gilles, when facing a lower ranked opponent, is that, he doesn’t press hard enough. Unless things go really well and he is in a groove or sth. Otherwise, a couple of misses while going for it, then he starts shying away from pressing too much. Surely, anyone in a GS MD is able to pull an upset these days. But Wang is ranked outside Top 150, Gilles’ letting him play too much. If he’s playing a Top 20, you won’t see him playing like this.
That's what I think anyway.

Ok, just when I said that, he did press hard here. Get a break, well done. Now, please don't give it back.

That's a much better serve game to close out the set.
Now, be a sweetie and finish it in 4. I got to go out soon. C'mon Gilles.

I hope Gilles is able to steam roll Wang here in the 4th set. It looked like Wang was starting to feel all of the running Gilles has made him do.

Gilles off to his usual start to a new set after winning the last with a break against him after having 0-40 on Wang.
