It seems I'm the only one with a Simon/Monfils dilemma here
I looked on atp.com and they actually never played each other. How strange !
But Simplet, if Richard get to the quarters it means he has beaten Rafa the round before, so there is his big impression
I also feel like no matter the rankings, Richard is very rarely the underdog against the Frenchies. And are we sure that Gaël will enter the top 10 if he gets to the quarters ? Since he has absolutely no points to save, maybe a third round win will suffice. Or maybe even a quarter won't, if the other top ten are doing great...
As for Gillou, after his big declarations like his aim is at least to go into 4th round, he has a lot to lose if Gaël beats him, and I really don't want to hear the comments people are going to make if he doesn't realise what he said he was expecting to do !
What can I say ? I want them all to win the tournament
(Honestly the victory will go to the best, I just want them all to be in top form, beginning with Jo
