Never in doubt.

3rd title for Simon, the level of Benneteau's game went down after the first set, but he looked like the better player at the start.

Well done Gilles

Nobody cares because everyone knew what was going to happen.

I bet my real cash on Simon I expected some choking, but it was surprisingly easy.

Simple Simon wins another title and this time he qualified for the event, so he won 6 matches this week, not counting the walkover.

“ On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Benny had the boney git in the 1st set but from nowhere played an awful 12th game.

Nobody cares because Simon sucks and is a pusher with no game.

True, yet he's won 3 titles. One of them indoors. Surreal.

A classic MTF style comment

I still prefer clever pushing than brainless ballbashing. I have to admire somebody who has no game, sucks and is a top 50 player

By the way, can somebody enlighten me...he was ranked around no.40 and had to qualify for this Casachallenger. I don't get it :retard:
