It will be tight, I think Gilles leads 3-2 in the head to head. I think Benneteau is playing a little better at the moment but it will be interesting to see how this one turns out. Hopefully Gilles pulls it out.

Rotterdam has gone to shit. This will be utterly unwatchable between 2 French pushers.

It should be an interesting contrast. Benny will be making the play and trying to get to net and Gilles will be looking to pass and make like difficult for him. Hoping for Gilles to come through this one as it is a big chance for another 500 final.

I'd prefer Julien to win, but it might be more heartbreaking to lose yet another final. He's never faced Del Po. Has a losing record to Dimitrov but beat him easily last month at AO. Other two matches that Grigor won went the distance.

Simon was always going to win this match regardless of whether Benny won or Fed. He owns Fed's ass and Benny is a choker

Re: Rotterdam SF All-French affair Julien Benneteau vs (5) Gilles Simon

Benneteau a pusher Benneteau is too aggressive for his own good far too often (Against Tsonga, for instance) but he has a beautiful offensive game and is a great net player (Olympic medal in doubles?)

I'll be rooting for Julien, because I like attacking tennis, but I feel it doesn't really matter: the other semifinal will determine the evenual winner.

Re: Rotterdam SF All-French affair Julien Benneteau vs (5) Gilles Simon

I dont know, everytime Pushermon wins is a horrible day for tennis but on the other hand i would to see him destroyed by one of our Knights in the final, so...

Supporting the Ballbasher Nation, some of our proud soldiers:
Juan Martin del Potro - Robin Soderling - Ernests Gulbis - Thomas Berdych - Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
Exiled: Janowicz
Pusher Nation's Reign of Terror is coming to an end, their borders are conquered and we won't take any prisoners!
Get Ready King Mandy!

everytime Mandy wins, a little ballbasher kitty dies somewhere... Save kitties; support Ballbasher Nation
