Marseille, R2 Simon def Djocomic 6/2 6/7(6) 6/3

Djocomic was broken twice in the first set, making a double fault on BPs each time. He was a UE machine the rest of the time, (40 cm out at least just to be sure he doesn't win too many points).
The only similarity with the player who won AO was the ball bouncing.

In the second set he pretended to fight but not too much. Simon wasted 1 MP and did not manage to finish the match though.

Simon broke in the third game of the third set.
Finally what we were all waiting happened: the trainer came at 4/1.
The end was boring like nothing else.

Congrats to Simon for beating David Guez in the first round.
Let's not forget he is REALLY sick.

Jaap.

Nice tanking job Novak. Why did you even bother playing?

Very crappy match indeed.

Djoko obviously playing WAY below his normal level, gave Simon gazzillions of chances to take the match in two sets, but Simon apparently was glued to the baseline and refused to take advantage of all the chances he got. Ugh.
