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

this is going to 5, i can feel it. Honestly i dont give him a grat shot at winning this if he cant fight back and prove me wrong but if bakr holds on i could see him running away with the 5th set

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

IMHO:

1) Baker had a stretch where he played much, much better--and it's continuing.
2) Baker's serve statistics are improving.
3) Simon's serve is dropping off in effectiveness--right now he can't seem to get a first serve in. Now a double fault.

I hope he can let this set go and get a second wind in the 5th.

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

im glad he proved me wrong. But my god that was scary. Baker had all the momentum in the world and gilles was incredibly frustrated

im glad he bunkered down and won in the end

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

You're killing me, you'll killing me. But I'm glad you won though. I mean, THANK GOD you won!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PHEW!!!!!!!


I didn't watch set 4, I don't what happened there. But looking at the stats now, 60% first serve, 53 winners/35 UEs, not bad, not bad at all. Next is Wawa. Good luck Gilles.

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

I just knew it wasn't going to be as easy as Gilles was making it seem early on. I mean a emotional roller coaster ride is par for the course when it comes to a Gilles Simon match. I'm just glad he was able to win in the end because that would've been a devastating loss if he hadn't. The kind of loss that can harm your career for weeks and even months down the line.

Thankfully he composed himself and started playing up to his level again for the 5th set and finished in fine style. Well done Gilou!

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

Well, it's either 5-7 or losing it on TB . But I guess I rather the TB then cos at least he'll serve first. Now he serves 2nd in 2nd set and immediately lost his serve, typical. Glad that Stan gave it back to him right away. He needs to make something happen soon cos this match is running away from him. C'mon Gilles, you can do better than this, don't let Stan dictate everything.

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

he was playing like another day in the office first set and it was enough to beat wawa. then he got all stiff and now i'm not watching anymore, i find the score tracker much more enjoyable at the moment

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

I'm sorry but this is it. He's done.
I'm done. I'm feeling mentally tired just watching this .

He's out done by Stan in every category, even the mental, that's when you know he has no chance.
