And I don't care about Harrison allegedly having more potential than Simon ever had. It's easy to be hyped up as the next big thing when you're the only young American who isn't playing like shit.

Why can't we be Happy that Ryan had a good run, defended his points, and Simon is refinding his form after a horrible slump?

Besides Harrison imploding in the third set (which still had many close games in the early stages), he definitely dominated many of the rallies in the first few sets. Harrison was determining how the rallies went, but Simon did a great job at retrieving/retrieving/retrieving, i had forgotten how much energy the guy has

Because hardly anybody on MTF likes him. . The only Frenchmen I dont like is Gasquet and I am sure the only one you dont like is Monfils.



Stronga,Monfils,DelPo,Nalbandian,Berdych,Gulbis,Ha as and Djokovic are the players I support the most.

Haha good point Gilles is a tactical genius just knows what he wants to do and usually is pretty successful at it.

he's a really nice guy with a lot of class and it would be nice to see him getting back up in the rankings. I feel like he works really hard to compensate a bit for the size/power hole in his game

I like Monfils. I just also like making fun of him. Tsonga and Gasquet can be really hard to root for when they implode spectaculary. Simon however is the little engine who could.

Aw. Nice to hear that about Gilles benji. He seems like a good guy. I like the fact that he's finding his form at the moment, although he should have ended this match sooner.

Trolling is defined by Herring as baiting and luring others into pointless and time-consuming discussions.

4 criteria of trolls:

1. Appearance of outward sincerity.
2. Posts designed to incite anger or "flames"
3. Posts designed to waste everybody's time with useless argument
4. Desperate desire for attention, any attention at all

Recognize them, don't engage and put 'em on your ignore list where they belong. Feed a troll and you're just encouraging their attention-seeking.

Great fight from the bulge master.

Simon is a lightweight guy with a big heart and clear conception of what he can and must do in order to win and that's good enough for me.
Compared to him and in spite of all the presumed talent, flair, speed, strength, results and whatnot, the rest of the mousquetaires are a bunch of bluffs and chokers.

Good showing from Harrison as well... will have to try harder and keep his nerves in check though, he's too tightly strung and that hurts his game more than it helps.
