No words really for how bad Simon was
How can someone get that lucky and lose?

Farcical lack of line call at Match point no.4 might have cost Granollers on another day.

Ugly tennis, and it got worse and worse over time.

Re: Valencia SF Lucky Granollers def. Gilles Simon 64 64

this would be a poor match in challenger qualifying, and no I'm not exaggerating

Haider-Maurer did it just last week in Vienna.

Vamos, Marcel You show them why they should have given you a WC. Beat Pics on his own tournament!

Challenger quality match. Simply painful to watch, unless you're a Ferrer fan of course. Unless Granollers picks it up gigantically, he's going to get crushed. Fortunately for him, his opponent today put in what must be the worst performance in an atp semi I've ever seen.

Has to be something wrong with Simon, a virus or the knee problems again perhaps. Was just rolling the ball in on serve, returned with the silken touch of an elephant, and whenever he had to pick up a low ball he was making basic errors - bucketloads of them. Almost every 2nd point was a jawdroppingly atrocious error from him. Also doublefaulted every break.

Granollers was choking bigtime at the end, gifted away two breaks entirely on errors, but Simon was so godawful he couldn't do anything.

Vienna is not a 500 event but this match looks more like a qualifying match for a challenger.

Vienna is a 250. Anyway, Gilles had a bad serving day while Granollers served well. Gilles did put up a decent fight despite not playing well (he saved lots of break and match points). A few of the points in the last few games were really good as well.

Pretty sure with the new ATP World Tour schedule, ATP 500s are always in the same week and 250s are always in the same week. No mixing and matching. Both Basel and Valencia are 500s this week, for instance. Not sure if that's the best strategy but I guess that's what the ATP wants...

Meanwhile, disappointing semifinal results today for me. Looking forward to the Basel final but meh to Valencia tomorrow.
