RG R1: Simon finally wins again, def. Odesnik 3-6, 7-5, 6-2, 4-6, 6-3.

He has an easy draw for the first few rounds, hopefully he can take advantage of it. Good morale boosting win, he needed it. He fed off the support of the crowd in the last set.

RG R1: Simon def. Odesnik 3-6, 7-5, 6-2, 4-6, 6-3

lol @ the effort it took

is simon really that bad or does odesnik actually fight the system and not suck on clay; turned off the tv some time during the first set

oh well, positive winner/unforced error ratio from simon in the end... according to this shoddy slamtracker anyway

brands or kendrick next

Odesnik has done shit this season and took him to final set

shame he gets to play Kendrick next round, a decent claycourter would have taken this mug out

She-mug won a match on clay, finally? Good for him. Wayne-O losing some points now. That's going to hurt.

Good way to win the match for Simon, should be a bit easier for him next round.

One poor game from Odesnik in the 5th and he got nailed for it.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

could this be a turning point for Simon's confidence? I saw some great play from him in this match, some aggressive play at times, though more pushing for most of the time, the match point was very impressive

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.

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

simon punishes wayne-O for wearing blue shoes and white socks with black shorts / shirt.

Simon wasn't great but it wasn't a terrible match. At the moment anything is a good win for him.

I watch Simon and think two things: 1) How is he number 7 in the world? 2) Is he Arnaud Clement?
