WWW RGR2 : [11] Gilles Simon vs [WC] Brian Baker

No thread for this??? Bakery to the victory at Philippe Chatrier vs the French #2 pusher Simug.

Honestly, can't see Baker winning here but one can only hope. Can you imagine the mayhem if BB actually wins?

I'm hoping for at least a 4 setter and stretching Simon as much as possible.

I hope Baker gives a good account of himself, so the whole tennis world gets to know him. His story doesn't seem to be known by a lot of analysts and commentators.

Baker can attack Simon's serve and won't have his own serve attacked = Baker win.

I hope Brian can adapt to the wind better than Harrison b/c his 2nd serve is vulnerable. He needs to keep the points short and try not get into long rallies with Simon (played too many matches already). His dropshots will be handy here for sure.

Hopefully, he can have fun and not let the crowd affects him. Good luck Brian, always looking forward to your beautiful game .

I like this Baker guy. I'm afraid his WTA second serve will prove to be too much of a handicap against Simon.

Re: WWW RGR2 : [11] Gilles Simon vs [WC] Brian Baker

its interesting how many people think brian will win. Last week he played well but as soon as he came across in form almagro he was easily disposed of and that was the first strong player he came across.

if simon plays well he should win this one

Funny thing to say because just one match before 'easily disposing' Baker, Almagro had an even easier job against Simon.
