Re: Asia/indoor 2011 - Hard isn’t getting easier but finish line is near!

Depressing. I didn't see after the first set so I don't know what went wrong but I'm assuming he showed little fire again. He just seems mentally and physically fatigued at this point.

Oh well, as I said earlier even if he can't get into the top 10 I hope he plays well in Paris at home to finish out the year on a high note. We have to remember he's moved from the mid-40s to close to the top 10 in one year so it's been a successful year overall.

I don't think he ever plays well in Paris, the fast surface doesn't fit him much.
Anyway, he won 2 tournaments including a 500. It's been a good year in my book no matter.
Allez Gilles, keep trying next week.

I agree he has done so well to rise up the rankings with some great results. But the good always has to come with the bad (unless you're Nole)

Just hoping for at least a couple more good wins before the season is out. Good luck Gillou

Let's see if he can win some matches in Valencia, he starts against Davydenko, then GGL or Q, and QF against Ferrer, Verdasco or Isner.

His quarter:
Ferrer(1)- Verdasco
Qualifier- Isner
Garcia-Lopez- Qualifier
Simon(5)- Davydenko

Gilles Simon
Benoît Paire, Edouard Roger-Vasselin,Nicolas Mahut, Jeremy Chardy, Aljaz Bedene, Florian Mayer, Tommy Robredo, Evgeny Korolev, Albert Ramos, Guillaume Rufin

He's first up today 1pm local time. If someone finds a good stream could they record it if possible?

ALLEZ!!!

I was too busy this weekend that I didn't even know he's playing today. Oh well, nothing missed.
Well, I'm just gonna pretend that this season is over. He'll be back on track comes next year, I think so, or hope so.
