Roland Garros R1:  Simon def. Harrison 3-6 7-5 6-4 6-1
Harrison had 6-3 *5-4 40-15, and was up a break in the third set.
Complete collapse from the American, but Gilles deserves credit for hanging in when things were ugly through the first two sets, where he was struggling with the wind, struggling with his serve, and making tons of errors.
Harrison was playing pretty well and really dominating the points through the first 1 3/4 sets. Simon's game was super passive and unimposing, hitting very short and allowing Ryan to dictate. Everything changed when the wind started kicking in and Ryan served for the second set. Really unfortunate, but a good win for Gilles, never played anywhere near his best, but a win is a win.
