Not bad for a guy who doesn't belong on the same court as Federer huh! Hope ol Mats has a brown paper bag handy.

I had thought that Fed will get more support than Gilles on PC, I don't blame them, they are always in love with Fed anyway. I just hope Gilles wins it and stick it to them.

Allez Gillou!!! I hope he can sustain this level and make it to his first RG Quarterfinal. Let's pray that this is more like Del Potro in Marseille and less like Andy Murray in Madrid.

Well I'm not going to make the mistake of getting ahead of myself. I just can't do that again. I've been going at this match the whole time under the assumption that it's only just a matter of time until it all comes crashing down on Gilles, but nonetheless, what a performance by Gilles it's been.

That fourth set was a lot closer than the 6-2 score might indicate. Allez Gillou in 5!

I think it's starting to get away from Gilles now. I hope he can make something happen in the fifth set but it's going to take a monumental effort and I just don't think it's going to happen. Be that as it may, c'mon Gilles!

Well, I have not have a moment thinking that he will win it, it's easier to deal by not expecting much, I train myself in every occasion.

So Gilles is not going to win. I just hope he has enough belief though to at least hold his own and not give it away. Let Fed raises his game to take it from Gilles. Allez Gilles.

Win or lose, there's a lot of positives for Gilles to take away from this match and the past month. He was points away from beating Murray, came back for the first time in his career from losing the first 2 sets of a match to win it, and took Federer to 5 at a major which is more reminiscent of 2008/09 Gilles against Federer so I hope focuses on that and it leads to better things throughout the rest of the year. There's no reason why he couldn't and shouldn't win a 250 or 500 tier tournament if he plays like this. Hopefully Jan De Witt will continue to set him straight and make him see the positives of the last month.

Sadly, I can see his confident falling apart. C'mon Gilles.

Default Re: 2013 Spring European Clay Season, Allez!

There's some interesting comments that have been made that have shed some interesting light into Gilles Simon's habits that many feel, including Jan De Witt and Gilles' fellow French players feel do him a great disservice which is sleeping on the couch in the player's lounge before he goes out to play his match. They think that that is partially why he loses so many first sets because he is still groggy and not fully woken up and is still slow on the court. They are saying that that habit is hurting him right now because he often has spent so much more time on the court than his opponent as a result and then gets tired in moments like this. Apparently Jan De Witt is trying to get Gilles to stop napping before the matches so he is fully alert and ready to go. Pretty interesting insight. These comments came from Tsonga during a guest interview while the match against Federer is going on.

Well, I hope some day he will get over that last hurdle.

Gilles is such a sweet man.

Great effort from Gilles! Nothing to be ashamed of. He played his heart out and left it all out there on the court. Truth be told, I was dreading this match today because after the previous encounter that Gilles and Fed had I was afraid of Gilles getting spanked bad on a much larger stage and in front of his home crowd no less, but he played extremely well and represented himself very well and I am very proud of him and his effort. Great tournament Gilles! Now get that ranking up so you don't have to face guys like Murray and Federer until the quarterfinals instead of the 4th round. Also, loved hearing the crowd chant "Gilou, Gilou Gilou" at the end and the great applause and ovation he got off the court.
