Too many errors from Simon in the first/second sets, rather uncharacteristic. However, the key thing was he played the big points well despite this, especially that first set tie break where he went straight to a 6-0 lead, and saving 10 of 12 break points.

In the third set Simon was simply glorious. Masterclass of variety and precision flat hitting. If he meets Nadal playing like that, he'll win easily.

if simon was the real deal last year, he's the real real deal now.

Only 2 threads?
His movement was great, in the part of the match I saw anyway (slept in )
Looking forward to his next match against Gael

i donn't know which game did you watch but:
1. in tie break ancic didn't any first serve
2.ancic had more errors than simon
3.simon should loose 3rd set easily

simon played very good(not the best he can),but like simon played today ancic in top form would win against him.

Poor Mario had all the bad luck today. Every single net cord went against him. But allez petit Gillou!

Yes, but 6-0 tells its own story.

As he always would, given a more aggressive game. However, Simon still dumped far too many into the net, by his standards. In 4 sets against Guccione he made 15 errors, here it was mid 30s in three sets.

Huh? You meant first surely? The 3rd was a total walkover.

Played Gilles, never in doubt.

He played well within himself and only went for it at certain times in the match but all in all another nice match and can you believe that this is his best GS showing ever?

Gael up next, will be interesting but I just think that Gilles is waaay too smart for Gael.

Re: AO R3:(6) Gilles Simon defeated Mario Ancic 7-6(2) 6-4 6-2

it's about time Giles bow out of Australian Open.

The only thing which is keeping him alive in this Australian Open is his newly grown beard which he isn't shaving off.

once he does and starts looking like a teenager, he won't continue to survive more then 2 rounds
