Re: On to Miami, "Take Two" continues...

the first set went like this:

gilles breaks for early 2-0 lead

bautista-agut gets it to 4-2

gilles break back and then break again, takes the set 6-4. Served it out at love

doesn't seem to be playing that great.

Re: On to Miami, "Take Two" continues...

Typical Gilles set

Knowing him he'll probably lose the second but hopefully he pulls it out.

Re: On to Miami, "Take Two" continues...

6-4, 6-2

MUCH better second set. much better serving as well. He had only dropped 2 points on serve all set until he served for it and then he had to save 2 break points before closing it out

Re: On to Miami, "Take Two" continues...

Its so nice to see him winning a match in 2 relatively easy sets. For once he didn't make to much fuss out of a match he should be winning easily

Re: On to Miami, "Take Two" continues...

Well, I missed a couple of games and then I came back to see Gilles was getting medical treatment for his lower back. It looks painful , And the next Melzer's service game, he can barely hit the ball. The following TB though, he played great and get to a 5-0 lead, and then lost a bunch before taking it at 7-5. Ahhh, that back sucks. Hopefully, he can make another set out and win it in 2.

Winner/UE ratio: Simon:13-7, Melzer:14-21
Not bad. But it's a different game to play 2nd set with a back problem. Oh well, we'll see.

Re: On to Miami, "Take Two" continues...

Took some pills after set 1, should kick in about now? He's down 1-3. Well, he's going for his shots as much as he can, and Melzer is putting the ball back for Gilles to miss, so the contrasting style still in effect, . Although, I'm not really laughing as a Simon fan, hate to see him playing with pain, as he so often does.

Re: On to Miami, "Take Two" continues...

He broke back, on serve now at 2-3. Can still hope that he can do it in 2. Allez Gilles.

Re: On to Miami, "Take Two" continues...

He looks like he's getting more comfortable now, bless those painkillers. On serve 3-4, but he serves 2nd in this set.

Gosh, I hate those American commentators, Sam Gore is as bad as Doug Adler.
