After Gille Simon's pitiful run at RG, I'm surprised he is still the top ranked Frog.
Monfis is only 14 in the world seems very odd as he played way better than either of the 2 frogs ahead of him.
Apart from this, what do you guy's think of Simon's chances of proving himself on grass. Will he be a real contender unlike Gasquet ?
He's the top-ranked Frenchman because his late-season points have yet to fall off.
Sure, his form is terrible at the moment, but people are almost forgetting that he had a good start to the year, which is why Monfils and Tsonga aren't streets ahead of him, points-wise (on 2009 results).
Simon does seem to be more comfortable on the quicker surfaces, but he is also particularly vulnerable to the powerful aggressors, and the Wimbledon draw will be full of them. He isn't a contender for Wimbledon, but as long as he doesn't get a horror draw, he should win a match or two.
