Harrison has some growing up to do. He should have won this match. Great match for Simon. Real veteran stuff.

Re: IW 4R: Simon breadsticks Harrison 7-6(0), 5-7, 6-1

patches of this match had gilles back at his best. from *5-6 15-40 he won 16 straight points and 24 of 26 points. that is what gilles does best give away no points at all. his problem this year has been throwing in silly errors and games. his forehand looked a lot better today.

he is still lacking confidence (this week he has failed to serve out a set or match 4 times now ) but his fight takes over and wills him over the line in the end.

i like ryan but he has some serious growing up to do. his defense is clijsters like with the splits and being strong but agile.

all in all i'd have snapped your hand off from simon to make qtrs this week, but now he is there and it is isner not say murray or djokovic in his path cant help but feel like this is a chance at some big points for making a semi final.

this must have been a nice pushing extravaganza between the two...

Re: IW 4R: Simon breadsticks Harrison 7-6(0), 5-7, 6-1

LOL at this match...even more at the thread title. MTF is full of some of the least knowledgeable yet most vocal fans of any sport that I've seen. Those who think this match was NID for Simon must have been high or just blind. Simple Simon got blasted all over the court, yanked from side to side. He didn't choke 3 MP away, Harrison took them from him. It looked like a heavy weight versus a feather weight out there...the only difference was the additional 5 years experience that Simon has on tour.

Harrison def. Harrison (Simon was there too).

Ryan needs to learn that if you have someone backed up and far off the court, that the way to finish the point is not by rolling the ball to the other side of the court to setup another massive forehand...it's by hitting a sensible approach shot and ending the rally by moving forward.

It's surprising that considering how good Ryan was at net in this match he didn't get the hint and do more of this. He seemed content to play 40 shot rallies and let Simon error...that's the strategical equivalent of Federer trying to beat Nadal with his backand hitting balls way over his head. Even though, I must say to his credit Harrison is fast enough and good enough on defense that he did have quite a bit of success with this strategy.

For the blind Gilles fans, I will say he does have a way, almost reminiscent of Schuettler(MTF members like the OP with a join date after 2007 should google him) where he puts the opposition into a sleeper hold. Every ball he hits is at the same monotonously slow pace....eventually his opponents will stop playing aggressively sensing there is no danger and then WHAM! Forehand winner or etc.

Guarantee when Ryan Harrison gains more confidence in his offensive game, specifically finishing the point...guys like Simon will not trouble him. Good learning experience for him though, hope he watches the tape and learns.

whilst i agree this match was no gimmie for simon, he missed a smash and didn't put away an easy volley on 2 of the MP's, that is not harrison 'taking them from him'

stopped reading after that as can already tell you are just as biased against simon as the fans are for him you will be ranting about
