Re: 2014, Season Down Under

I kept yelling at my computer for him to hold serve at 3-3 because I knew it would get suspended . Oh well, good effort so far but looks like he might come up short. I just wish he was fully healthy for the majors for once.

Re: 2014, Season Down Under

He's done it again! He's fought his heart out and come away with the win. So so amazing. The only downside is that I really wish that both of these matches would've been on tv/stream courts so we could've seen it all unfold first hand and witnessed his epic fighting, will and perseverance for ourselves instead of numbers on a scoreboard,. But either way, way to go Gilou!!!!

7 winners on 5 sets, is that for real? Was there anyone watching?

Apparently there aren't enough staff on the stats so some courts don't have winners/ UE's counted. The 7 winners they mentioned were his aces, the UE's were his DF's.

Re: 2014, Season Down Under

Oh my god, only 9am and I was having such a bad day already. Then I checked the GM and saw AO R2: [18] Simon trolls Cilic 4-6 7-6(3) 6-7(5) 6-1 6-2. It made me laugh out loud; this completely turned my day around! Gilles, you're amazing!

Gilles , he is such a good fighter, back to back five-setters!

This seemed impossible just 4 days ago, but he loves to prove everyone wrong!

Re: 2014, Season Down Under

According to Eric Salliot, he played very well the last hour or so, hitting many winners to finish long rallies

Well 3 matches this year and 1.5 exhi matches and already enough drama for at least half a season. Just crazy stuff

Re: 2014, Season Down Under

I was so tired that I gave up after the first set, then I woke up in the middle of the nite and checked in here and saw the match was suspended when he was down a break at 4-5 in the 2nd. I thought it was rescheduled to the next day or sth, so I went back to bed. I didn't know they actually played on...and he won. Wow, like wow, didn't expect that, really. Go Gilles.

Re: 2014, Season Down Under

Really nice to see the Atp World Tour site give Simon some coverage/spotlight and props for his monumental efforts at the AO this year with this really nice little piece called

"From Crutches to Match Points Saved" .

I also heard Brad Gilbert and Darrin Cahill saying Simon deserved a round of applause for what he's been able to do after he pulled it out over Cilic while they were covering the Paire match in ESPN after being on crutches just days ago.

The good news about the interview is that it sounds like the ankle is just sore, but nothing major as initially feared and he's going to be ok.

Allez Gilou! I don't know any other athlete who does live up more to Adidas' all in slogan.
I couldn't believe it when I saw the score in my break at work.

The video is great and I love little Timothée playing in the background. He seems to be a lefty.
