AO R1 Simon def Andujar 6-4 6-1 6-1

Masterful display by Gillou after a slightly shaky first set. And a dismal 1st serve (47%) Some awesome passing shots and improving netplay. Good signs for the future!

I've always liked how sharp and well disguised his backhand is but now his forehand is a reliable weapon as well. Allez Gilles

This is a good sign for him after his terrible Hopman Cup/preparatory performances. Let's make a deep run here, Gilles. Ranking points to gain too.

Djokovic // Del Potro // Paire // Thiem // M. Zverev // Youzhny
Coric // Khachanov // Donaldson // A. Zverev // Bublik
Ferrero // Rafter

And needs to cut down on the lame UEs too, but there have definitely been improvements!

Gilles really lifted his game after the first set and didn't look back. He kept Andujar on the defensive and attacked off the right balls. Overall, when it got tight, Simon played the big points better.

And Pablo, well I have to admit I found myself cheering for him (sometimes it's hard to say who you'd prefer to win out of your favorite players until you see them up against each other). He did play ok, but had some horrible misses off backhand volleys. I always knew Pablo was handsome, but in person he's absolutely stunning.

Re: AO R1 Simon def Andujar 6-4 6-1 6-1

The best thing about the first set was the ace he started it with
He barely got a handful of 1st serves in after that Needs more work Gilles!
His passes though are brutal, I hope someone capped this match!

You should give the ATP a hand with their pic selection and graphics
