God. Recently it seems like every picture of this kid just makes me sad irrespective of whether he's winning or losing. They remind me of Sveta's quote after her loss to Dina at RG 08, "I could not put up much of a fight with her today because first I had to fight myself and that's as far as I can go." Or something like that. I just see a guy who just has no idea what's going on right now and is fighting against himself to get through.
Luckily he did today, beating Tuxedo 63 64. Quite a nice win for him over a very solid opponent.
And the hot teacher/student French-on-French action ended the way that it should, with Gilly winning in straight sets and looking might good doing it. I seriously want to lick his neck in that pic. Nom nom.
Nole and Gilles will face each other tomorrow.
