AO R2 Simon def Guccione 6-7 6-4 6-1 6-2

Routine win for Gilles, never got broken, bettered Guccione for aces 14-12, never really needed to get into gear against a fairly poor opponent who, once his serve had gone, his game had gone.
Allez Gilles! and his sexy passing shots

Re: AO R2 Simon def Guccione 6-7 6-4 6-1 6-2

Yes a routine win in the end, but from what I saw the Gooch gave Simon a pretty good match for the first two sets. I was actually quite surprised at how much Guccione's improved his ground game and I really think he'll do well this year barring injury. Simon was genuinely frustrated by the Gooch's service and did well to keep on top of things in the second set. Once that went Gilles's way, Guccione just lost a lot of confidence and went a bit wayward mentally... had a few of those BP points been played a bit better by Chris, it could've been a different story.

Time for Gilles to break the third round curse.

Gooch had 0-30 on simon's serve in the 2nd, 2 points away from being 2 sets up...

At first Gooch upset Simon with these aces and successful net escapades; the French looked like could find no remedy (despite holding own serve comfortably).

The monumentum changed when Gooch could break at 4-4 in the 2nd set; there was 0-30 and a challenge that overruled decision in Simon's favour. From that moment on, Gooch genuinely struggled in rallies (even if it lasted 2-3 shots boo hoo). Also later his net game got worse.

Overall, never in doubt.

Re: AO R2 Simon def Guccione 6-7 6-4 6-1 6-2

Guccione is shameful winning 7 games in three sets at home with his serve, even if Simon is a good receiver. It's a pity because besides good serve he can hit sometimes nice volleys and groundstrokes from both sides but zero passion in his tennis

Re: AO R2 Simon def Guccione 6-7 6-4 6-1 6-2

complete meltdown by gooch.
but good display from simon who is showing why he is a top ten player.
he was up 7-6 *4-5 40-15 on serve an loses 4 straight points to lose the set and then wind + simon took over the match.

congrats to simon

Very routine. Gilles looked bored.

It was the first time I'd seen Guccione play so I was trying to be nice! He just faded, once Simon found his return against him his fate was sealed.

Simon got lucky.

He won't be so lucky next round.
