Re: Toronto R3: G. Simon def. J. Acasuso 6-3, 6-4

It was a pretty long match, the scoreline is a little misleading, Acasuso didn't just go away. Simon saved lots of breakpoints again. But Simon seemed to in control most of the time.

I only saw the first set. They were really slugging it out and had some really, really long rallies. Simon seemed to attack every single short ball.

True about the scoreline being misleading. He seemed weary at the start of each set, then seemed to find some rhythm. Some long baseline rallies and plenty UE's by Acasuso. Took full advantage of Acasuso's second serve. Well done Gilles!! Keep it going.

Re: Toronto R3: G. Simon def. J. Acasuso 6-3, 6-4

Kind of expected. From what I saw, Simon was returning EVERYTHING and that frustrated Jose way too much. Acasuso missed many eaaaasy FHs.
Simon is an awful match up for hard-hitters. It was a good run for Chucho, nevertheless.

Re: Toronto R3: G. Simon def. J. Acasuso 6-3, 6-4

Acasuso wasn't really hitting hard this week, against Gulbis and Gonzalez he was playing passively like Simon normally does and today he started fairly passively although towards the end of the match Acasuso tried more to take the initiative. A lot of the time it was Simon who was dictating rallies.
