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

Gillou wasted three MPs in a mini-implosion in the second set but was clearly the better player today. The outcome was never in doubt.

Both deserve a place in 'Pushing Hall of Fame', but for me... it was a fascinating contest.

Harrison was, for perhaps the first time in his life, too aggressive. Should have just hit junk slices down the middle every shot, every point.

Fifth french brain explosion in the tournament, Simon is responsible for two of them but somehow he's still alive. I guess that's the difference between him and the others.

I loved this match, I got mentally tired watching them push, I cant even imagine how tired they both must have felt. Ryan's final mental collapse was predictable but he stood tall longer than I expected him to.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

Oh man, I know these courts are slow as ass but some rallies were exceptionally long, both players were great in defense, it's a pity Harrison lost his focus after an unnecessary argue with Murphy.

Simon has become a comical specialist of winning matches in which he lost a mp-up set, has already won 8 matches of this type (two this week).

Yay Simon.

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.

Simon displayed Djokovic/Nadal level defense, returning multiple smashes and drop shot is in a single point, never going away or letting his frustration, wearing down an incredibly fit 19 year old. Really great from him. I'm glad he's back.

Well that's Simon for you. When he's not coming from behind he just goes full circle. Don't think he understands the concept of a straight line.

Bizarre match and Bizarre hug at the net. Gilles went for a handshake but Ryan just threw himself onto Gilles.

Aside from the choke when serving for the first set and then the match, Simon played pretty well. The usual defending with quite a few forays to the net and injections of pace from the back.
