Re: 2012 Hardcourt all the way! let's roll into another up cycle.

Srsly, I think it's sucks that this is on Ashe, clueless ppl who never watch Gilles are going to think this is Gilles game (That's right, Luke Jensen, I meant you).

I wouldn't worry about them lala. They won't care or appreciate him either way. This is for us the Simon fans and for Simon himself. He deserves to be here in this moment and be able to say that he had a night match on the largest tennis stadium in the world in New York City at 11PM at night.

With all the hardships he has to endure to get himself here, it's just unfair that he has to be ridiculed by those clueless commentators.

Fish is the real idiot, can't even beat the 50% Gilles.

I'm not enjoying this match at all. I mean, the past 2 matches were tough to watch, but at least I can concentrate on watching and feel the agony. So far, I'm so distracted that I hardly can pay attention. Damn!

I hear ya. But ultimately screw them. Let's just cheer on Gilles. He's got a chance to even this a set a piece right now.

I'm clapping so hard for Gilles right now. Look at this beast compete against all odds. Monfils and Gasquet with all do respect, hell even Tsonga could learn a thing or two from him about heart.

i was terrified after that first set he'd just get mauled but he's competing well and i am so proud of him right now

haters can say and think what they want , gillou deserves credit here, even if fish is playing poorly

Hope that helps. At least we know now that Gilles won't get routed in straight sets.

Amen to that. I think i'm more proud in this moment right now to be a Simon fan than i've ever been. He's fought hard. Whatever happens happens, but I love this guy and his heart, passion, will and never say die fight.

Re: 2012 Hardcourt all the way! let's roll into another up cycle.

I close my eyes for 20 minutes and he takes the set! Maybe I should just go to bed or keep napping and checking the score? Perhaps the best way to watch this match reading your guys comments?

Also, VERY proud of him right now.

Gilles Simon
Dimitrov • Mahut • Paire • Hewitt • Raonic • Berdych • Gulbis • Murray


Thanks for the memories... Andy Roddick.

Thanks.

I'm extremely proud of him too. He's one tough cookie.

This is so odd to watch! I have no idea what emotion to feel! I feel like crying because he looks in pain! I'm cheering because he's winning points. Cringing every time he grabs his legs. Puzzled at Mardy's play

Re: 2012 Hardcourt all the way! let's roll into another up cycle.

Gimelstob (on Tennis Channel in US) is finally figuring out that Simon's serve is nothing like his usual--he pointed out that Simon typically will "pop" a few at 120 MPH. I'm not sure how long it will take him to conclude that Simon's shoulder is injured. Can't they get an intern to do some research on the internet to clue these guys in? At least Justin knows more than Courier and the other commentator how atypical this performance is.
