Sydney starts on Jan 1st. Here's Gilles quarter of the draw. Not easy as he's facing Seed 6 Lucas Pouille

Pouille vs Simon
Edmund vs Qualifier
Troicki vs Qualifier
Bye - Wawrinka

Gilles' also playing double with Stephane Robert. They will face their first opponent today Jan 1st.
Show Court 2 last match:
Steve Johnson/Diego Schwartzman vs Stephane Robert/Gilles Simon

Gilles' draw in AO, the bottom half.



His opening round opponent is Mmoh, a WC. The first 2 rounds seem winnable. But who know which of him shows up. Hope he has a good tournament. Allez Gilles.

Good chance to reach QF, if you ask me. Hope Gilles finds his best form

Gilles has taken advantage of his nice draw to win his opening two matches without dropping a set. Hopefully that will give him some confidence for a very tough R3 match against Raonic.

He looked pretty good in 1st 2 matches. Aggressive and his serve wasn't shit like last year. + he was going to net a lot.
Hope he beats Botnic. I will probably miss that match, but he needs to be clutch. Queens 15 was amazing

on the other hand he faced two opponents who didn't pressure him so he could go for his shots freely without thinking of the consequences of making errors.

Raonic will offer a totally different proposition so he has to adapt, return very well which is very difficult for that serve and hitting deep and well to prevent Raonic from attacking easily by making him move and uncomfortable.
Also Raonic has improved his movement and abilily to rally since 2014 or so, so it will be very difficult and Raonic is the huge favorite to me.

Draw from hell for Gillou. He won very tough match vs Mahut today. Though if he beats Zverev/Thiem, QF will be much easier.

Simon has the winner of Struff vs Bedene, first up in Miami. Hope he's fully refreshed in both mind and body, after missing Indian Wells. A potential first meeting with Nishikori. Amazing that they haven't faced one another yet.
