Congrats Gilles! Tough to know how Youzhny will be next round because he hasn't played.

I can't really hate on Jo either even though he shouldn't have said it. I think in the heat of the moment he was probably just disappointed. Gilles has said some things he probably shouldn't have in the past too

Really strange schedule for Gilles. He played on Sunday and now won't play again until Wednesday. Hopefully he keeps his rhythm.

I don't know. I kinda get the feeling from Jo that he is pretty full of himself and probably tends to think that very little is ever his fault. He can be kind of a big about things on and off the court at times.

I was so pissed that they had him playing on Sunday because no tv (at least where i'm at) or internet coverage started until today and so I had to watch the scoreboard. How do they expect me to get by. Hello, i'm a Gilles Simon addict and I need my fix already!

I was a bit annoyed too. But then I didn't bother to get up early just to see the SB, so it was okay.

I always thought they stuck players they don't care much to play on sunday in those 1000 events. But maybe not in MC, since they put their only MC representative on court against the closest thing to a hometown player, Gilles being from Nice.

But this schedule really sucks for him, had to wait 3 days to play the next match.

Gil must like it here so it will be tough but it's definitely a winnable match. Good luck Gilles!

Easy win for Gilles, 6-3 6-0 in 63 mins, got broken at 1st service game as usual, but cruised on after that, low 1st serve %, what's new. Good luck next round. Allez.

Re: Clay season 2012, "Take Two" most definitely

It was a solid match for Gilles but the same things that will hurt him against the top players still surfaced here, the slow start and the poor first serve percentage. Hopefully he warms up quickly and serves a little better in the next match.
