Indian Wells R3: Simon def. Wawrinka 6-4 6-4

Match got a bit interesting in the second set when Wawrinka started hitting out without inhibition after falling behind a double break at 1-*4, but overall way too many errors from Stan to win the match, he received treatment for a lower back/upper leg issue at 1-*2 in the second set. Simon was decent, served well and didn't have to get out of his comfort zone too much. Stan couldn't consistently find a way to finish points off without errors. His serve bailed him out for most of the match, and he saved a handful of match points down *1-5 in the second set with winning serves/aces, but Simon was overall too solid on the day.

Should have been 6-4 6-1 (Gillous had 3 match points at 5-1) but good solid win, much better from the bulge king.

Well done Gillou. Stan I'm sort of giving up hope he'll get back to the Top 10

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

Got a tad nerve wracking late in the 2nd, but Simon held easily at 5*-4 to end any possibility for a crazy comeback.

Simon deliberately choked to deliver the double bagel. Gotta love that stuff.

anyway, gilles was the far more steady player and once he got going was in control of the match. stan grabbed a couple of games back at the end when hitting freely thinking he had already lost.

i'll take a 4th round, but with isner not murray as the next opponent cant help but feel this is a chance to go deeper.

Gillou, keep it up- I think he can beat anyone in this quarter if he's solid enough.
