Julien Benneteau (FRA) vs Jarkko Nieminen (FIN)
Tommy Robredo (ESP) vs Qualifier
(5) Kei Nishikori (JPN) vs Marinko Matosevic (AUS)

(6) Florian Mayer (GER) vs Santiago Giraldo (COL)
(WC) Benjamin Mitchell (AUS) vs Marcos Baghdatis (CYP)
Qualifier vs Alejandro Falla (COL)
(3) Gilles Simon (FRA) vs Bye

(7) Jurgen Melzer (AUT) vs Qualifier

Allez Gilles ! Not a bad draw IMO, Flo Mayer could be a nightmare for Gilles on the QF's, hope Giraldo or Baghdatis takes him out, and I think Gilles can beat Raonic if he plays his best. One match at a time though, Falla can be dangerous when on.

Re: 2013 Australia, new adventure begins in Down Under

well he should definately be able to beat levine/falla and make the QF. It kind of sucks because he got stuck in the loaded quarter with 4 of the title contenders all in there.

good luck to him

Re: 2013 Australia, new adventure begins in Down Under

Gilles, the number 3 seed at the tournament and semifinalist there from last year, yeah, let's put him on court 1. Just ridiculous. Well, so much for being able to watch his first match of the new year I guess.

Re: 2013 Australia, new adventure begins in Down Under

Well I guess there is a stream for Court 1 after all, but it is pretty bad. A fixed camera on only one side of the court with no following of the players and horrible resolution. Gilles won the first set 7-6 and is up a break in the 2nd set. Hope he can close it out in straight sets.

Re: 2013 Australia, new adventure begins in Down Under

He won 7-6 7-6, not too impressive, felt like he's still trying to get back to game form, and he DF on MP . But then, he won 2 TBs, that I consider a good start for the year . Good luck next round. Allez.

Re: 2013 Australia, new adventure begins in Down Under

I'll take it. 1st match is never easy, so to win in straights but to be pushed also is ideal. Nice to start off with a qtr final in 1st tournament of the year also.

falla taking a medical time out in the 2nd set tie break was pretty bad.

Re: 2013 Australia, new adventure begins in Down Under

Congrats Gilles, didn't see it but it's good to get a straight sets win and to win two tiebreaks. I think Baghdatis is next, would be nice to get a semi in the first tournament back.
