RG R2: Simon def. Kendrick 7-5, 6-0, 6-1.

Confidence seems to be returning slowly but surely. Stats like last year apparently, 31-11 according to the tracker. Cant really trust that though. Still, good result. Hanescu next, harder then his first 2 matches.

Kendrick is a total, total clay mug. Words do not describe how bad he is on clay.

Re: RG R2: Simon def. Kendrick 7-5, 6-0, 6-1.

Was competitive for the first set. Kendrick's serve/volley was allowing him to hold despite his serve being relatively ineffective in the cold, and slow Lenglen. In rallies he was being aggressive enough to win a fair few points.

Howver, at 5-5 Kendrick had bps, missed em, Simon held. Then Kendrick threw away his serve and the set with several silly UEs.

Opening service game of 2nd, Kendrick again had a bp, missed it. After that a total tank job, just gave up, errors galore.

I'm not so sure about a return to form here, but at least the ease of the win should allow Simon to get his head straight. Onwards and upwards.

Good stuff, hope he can reach the quarters.

Congrats Gilles But I wouldn't read anything into this win, really. Kendrick is not good on clay, and Simon in any form is a bad match-up for him gamewise.
