2012 starts on the wrong side for Gilles. So this is take 2, let's start over again. Not to expect him to suddenly be good, but we'll do all we can (and pretty much all we can do is to open new thread for each tournament if that helps :p) to hope that he'll get better soon.

Next stop is Indian Wells, starts on March 8th, but he has bye, so probably won't start for him til the 10th at the earliest. HC is of course more of his element, so here's hoping that he'll do better, beat a Top 50 and get that monkey off the back. Allez Gilles.

Hoping he beats Sela. Then, against Wawa, it would be interesting.

Re: Indian Wells - A new season begins "Take Two"

Gilles teams up with Mahut to play double in IW. Their first round opponent, Dolpogolov/Malisse, aka the defending champion. LOL.
