I was hoping this video would still be up. It's so sweet. :)
He was playing at a Polish Challenger in 2005.

JBdV translated it: "I would like to thank all the Polish people who cheered for me, and all the pretty girls who came to see me play"

:lol: I love the fact cohka didn't understand what he said and had to come to MTF to get the compliment!

In the category "mini-videos", you also have another classic when he's asked for an ATP report in Hamburg who will win the 2006 World Cup:

(Or the longer version to appreciate better his refreshing answer in the middle of all the boring predictions - well, apart Murray who is hilarious):

I always loved his comments about football. :lol:

The videos on your website are very extensive!! I'll need to spend a free afternoon watching them all.

Thanks! I will have to take some time in my holiday to watch more movies :)

That last one is cool, Murray is really funny :lol:
But what is the first thing Gilles says? I'm still not good at French ;)

"J'ai pas compris" (he didn't understand the question first). But nothing wrong with your French, it's hard to understand.
I don't know why they kept that part, it's pointless and nobody gets what he says. :shrug:

They kept it, because they also love Gilles hair and want everyone to see it ;)

His reaction after the match, he doesn't look too crushed!

He just explains that he got injured again in training with Marat and had not played since then. So against a solid claycourter who doesn't make errors, when you are unprepared and physically not well, that's the result!

Nice blog by the way, Truc.
Lilibel, are you Lilibel from Infotennis?

I like the vidéo of the preparation in Paris Masters Series, with the countdown, you can see what they do the hours before the match, and when he ate..

Merci!
I'd love to see again the highlights of his match against Gaudio in Hamburg 2006, btw. I uploaded the highlights of the match on MTF at the time, but I don't have it anymore and Youtube and Dailymotion deleted my videos, unfortunately.

Wasn't that the match where Gaudio ripped his shorts. That was priceless. :lol:

There still are videos of the shorts sequence on Youtube, but the deleted highlights video was also showing the rest of the match. And it isn't available anymore on ATPmastersseries.tv either.
Gilles meant at the time it was the best match he had ever played.

I'm downloading the highlights because I didn't watch the 3rd set.
Did you include the whole tie break ??

Thank very much for that Truc :D

The highlights video is from AMS.tv, so it's just a few points (and I don't always get their points selection), not the whole TB. But at least you can see the MP if you've missed it.

If you haven't seen the 3rd set, I'll try to convert the file or edit out some parts so it isn't too big. I'll take a look at it later.
