Re: What Does Gilles Simon Have To Do To Convince Us He Is The Real Deal?
What do you consider a big deal? Talented? Be number one? Win a GS? Beat a great player? I think Simon is enough talented to be on the best 40 and stay there. I do not think he will win a GS or he will be number one. He is an average tennis player. Like many others. Today the outstanding players (big deal players) are Federer, Nadal and the perspective of Djokovic could be consider.. I do not see any other? With the time we will see another young guys that we can see as a big deal player.. It must happen.
We like average players, like Youzhny, Kiefer, Grosjean, Davydenko, Gasquet, Lopez because they can sometimes surprise and amaze us.. but they wont do anything more. Because they are old and or they do not have the ability to do it. And, of course there are others super talented and a real waste, like Safin, Hewitt and Haas.
It might be wrong about Simon, but this how I see about him right now.
