They haven't draw the second LL to replace Simon ?
Ben Rothenberg @BenRothenberg on Twitter:
French Tennis Federation reports Gilles Simon is withdrawing from #AusOpen due to his ankle injury. The lucky loser will be Stephane Robert.
When Simon withdraws #AusOpen draw will shuffle significantly: No25 Monfils will move to Simon's slot, No33 Benneteau will move to Monfils'…
…and lucky loser Stephane Robert will take Benneteau's spot (vs Carreno Busta in R1), assuming no one else withdraws before Gilles.
So, Monfils would move away from a potentially awesome R3 match vs Nadal and into a potentially awesome R3 match vs Tsonga. Cool.
