Phillip Simmonds

Phil was one of the promising young Americans in the same group as Kuznetsov, Kryvonos, Jenkins, Evans, and Odesnik, but whoever would have thought that Phil would be the first to win a challenger?

Simmonds just won his first challenger with a 3-6 7-6 6-2 victory over Dick Norman and will now make a huge jump in the rankings.


Here's Phil with his buddies Alex Kuznetsov and Scoville Jenkins:




Keep it up Phil and keep the young American tennis hope alive!

Re: Phillip Simmonds

That is really awesome. Good for him!

edit: Rankings are out and Phil got a 75 spot jump, up to 236. Hope he can keep that up. He seemed like a nice guy when we saw him as a practice partner with the DC Team in Feb

Re: Phillip Simmonds

He made the final of the Sacto Challenger last October, played really fierce tennis for a week.

Gee Grinder, wonder how long those linked photos will last?

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: Phillip Simmonds

Phil plays Richard Gasquet in the first round, will be tough, but if Phil can serve big, who knows?

Re: Phillip Simmonds

They have match highlights and a short post-match interview posted on the website.

http://braingame.dartfishnet.com/group.cfm?g=398

That's the first of I've seen of him. He seems like a nice guy. And while the angle of the highlights makes it difficult to make a confident assessment of his ability, it looks like he has the tools to be a good player.

By the way, he beat Pless last year as well. It's a good matchup for him apparently.

Re: Phillip Simmonds

We saw Roddick hit with Simmonds just about a year ago during Davis Cup. He definitely seemed like a really nice kid.
