All these French players make clowns out of themselves though, Clownga, Simon and Monfils... Shame Lllodra and Benneteau are too old to save French Tennis. Only hope left is Gasquet and I can't see him improving much.

EDIT: Forgot about Chardy, maybe he could do something good. Only time can tell.

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

Injuried leg, injuried forearm... but still the winner. What a fighter!!

Haters gonna hate, but no one can deny that these 2 have a lot of heart.

Gilles, I'm so proud of you, you never give up.

an embarrassment to modern mens tennis. match should have been called off and both players fined for excessive pushing.

Who can sit through that shit? I sat there for 20min and I want to kill both of the player and the FTF.

Nalbandian/Davydenko/Berdych/Gulbis/Nadal rock, the rest is more or less sucky.

Hilarious. All the people insisting that DP was going to demolish Murray now moaning that Andy has an easy draw because DP can't make the match... And it's not as if Gilles has ever been a tough opponent for Andy so his tiredness won't be a massive factor anyway.

Anyway I thought this match was very compelling. Really glad Gilles came through! He showed so much heart. And good on Gael for a strong start to the season after so long injured.

Gilles Simon - Juan Martin del Potro - Grigor Dimitrov

Pablo Andujar - Philipp Petzschner - David Ferrer - Mikhail Youzhny - Simone Bolelli

Julien Benneteau - Juan Monaco - Tommy Haas - Gianluigi Quinzi - Tommy Robredo - Guido Pella - Lleyton Hewitt

Both of these guys didn't have much in the tank before starting the match...
And yet they gave their heart out there and played so many long rallies for almost 5 hours.
One word is to be said: RESPECT!

Allez Simon, you rock
