Re: RG R1: Simon finally wins again, def. Odesnik 3-6, 7-5, 6-2, 4-6, 6-3.
What a forehand on the run to end the match! It was his forehand that saved him today. Gilles played well in the sets that he won, although I didn't see much of the sets that he lost. Odesnik has a heavy topspin lefty forehand, so I can see why he would be tough on this surface, for an American at least.
I'd like to see a Youzhny/Simon 3rd round. Would be high quality and high aesthetics.
