I've been a Gilles fan for a long time and never imagined he was a smoker. I doubt he is but I don't know
Anyway, great to see he's already a break up in the second set.

That's what I think. It's something that seems totally unbecoming of him and I just don't buy it. I think it's just two announcers making small talk about his cough stemming from his cold. But it would really bother me if it was true.

I've never heard that and I'm 99.9% certain it's not true. The British commentators aren't always the brightest bulbs.

I'm gonna say it's BS, because he's been on tour for 11 years and this is the first time ever that I heard such thing. But of course I wouldn't know.

Some fans here have seen him live in tournaments often, no one ever saw him smokes (surely if they did, they would have said it on here). So, I'll be doubting that commentator's source.

Serving for the match and suddenly Seppi is playing full of purpose and got the break. Gilles better be careful.

It's exciting isn't it!


Gilles played pretty well again today and especially considering the cold, windy overcast day it was. He has a pretty good record when he actually gets to the final, much like Nikolay Davydenko does, it's just getting there that's usually the challenge for him, but once he does he tends to come out on top. I hope that will continue to ring true come tomorrow, but Lopez and grass are more often than not a deadly combination. Good luck Gillou! Win your first grass title and first title of the year to continue the at least one title a year streak!

I was getting a bit nervous there at the end with Seppi breaking back. But so happy to see Gilles back in another final. Hope he can play his best against Lopez and get the win.

Either way it's been a successful week. Lopez will be very tough but I'm glad Gilles is playing him in the finals. It will help him get a read on his serve for Wimbledon.

Yes, it's better that he has a practice run tomorrow to get prepared for next week. And it's also a good thing that they are both in the same boat going into Wimby. But tomorrow is gonna be big, whoever wins will have a psychological edge. Good luck Gilles.

I just listened to his post match interview that was posted online and he said he's really happy with how he played. Confidence is half the battle with him so it's good to see him feeling good about his game for once.

Great week to see Gilles back on a final , the final will be one of his toughest, Lopez game is so suited to grass, and his serve is really effective in the surface, so Gilles will need to serve and play really well. About Wimbledon draw back to playing Lopez . If he beats Feli on Wimbledon he should beat Berankis/Mathieu and then a really tough match vs Haas, who plays so well on grass.
