Indian Wells R2: (q) Brian Dabul (ARG) upsets (16) Gilles Simon (FRA) 7-5 6-4

Dabul playing some good tennis, very solid performance from the left handed. Simon looked frustrated and a bit passive on the big moments.

Dabul makes R3! Cant say Simon lost it, more than Dabul won it with aggresive tennis and smart point building. Though Simon seemed a bit lost at times on court.

Simon never broke Dabul during the match, though Brian saved a 0-40 serving *6-5 on the first set.


Congrats Brian!!!!!!

Gilles was useless. Sorry but he was. He hasn't won a set yet this year.

Heh, Dabul and his huge serve didn't get broken in the whole match. Seriously though, good effort from Dabul and a nice win.

Re: Indian Wells R2: (q) Brian Dabul (ARG) upsets (16) Gilles Simon (FRA) 7-5 6-4

simon got beat by a player who has based his service action on kimiko date krumm lol

simon was crap, had no idea whether to attack or rally, as he made errors when he forced it and got pushed around when he rallied. he is making all sort of horrible shot choices to. very frustrating performance.

Simon never attacks anyway.

Great result for tennis. 'Gillou' belongs in the same ranking zone as Somdev Devvarman.

He comes back from a long injury, though.
