Miami R3: (11) Gilles Simon d. Grega Zemlja 6-4, 6-4

Gilles had no problems with an injured Zemlja but he still had very scratchy play, hopefully he'll step up against Tipsy.

Gilles basically did enough to win and nothing more. Still 2 straight sets wins mean hopefully he has plenty in the tank to beat Janko and make the qtrs.

Miami R3: Simon pushes through Žemlja, 6-4 6-4

That was really dull.

Simon hit 2 winners in the first set. A few more in the second set I think.
Žemlja hit way more winners, but also unforced errors.

Grega had some issues with his arm or something.

Nothing to see here.
Tipsy in his bageling form will bring the best out of Gilles, I hope. Actually, not sure, he's too far from his best to be possible.

Zemlja fought hard, and did well.

Well done Gillou!

They showed the end of this after the Djokovic match and it looked like 4 people were watching. Simon pulling in the crowds as always.

Note to SkySports: Zemlja ≠ Soulja

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

When Nole playing at the same time, maybe they all went to see Nole played

Not like now in Ct 1, lots of ppl, probably came out from the Main courts, no other option except some WTA stuffs, no wonder they pack the Melzer/Kemke match.
