Expected stuff, better player won in the end. Shitler should have won it more easily, but a win is a win. Always nice to see Simon lose....

Thanks for the cash, Rainer! :hatoff:

WTF is going on with Simon. He's been my major cash cow lately because of LOSING. Don't like his game style much (to say the least), but it's rather off-putting to see him suddenly fall so deep...

It was a quite good match from Schüttler in my opinion. There were a lot of long rallies which he won, of course his winner-ue ratio is not the best one, but a win is a win. Kohli can now go on the court with a 1-0 lead.

Simple Simon met a pieman going to the fair;
Said Simple Simon to the pieman "Let me taste your ware"
Said the pieman to Simple Simon "Show me first your penny"
Said Simple Simon to the pieman "Sir, I have not any!"

Simple Simon went a-fishing for to catch a whale;
All the water he had got was in his mother's pail.
Simple Simon went to look if plums grew on a thistle;
He pricked his fingers very much which made poor Simon whistle.
He went for water in a sieve but soon it all fell through;
And now poor Simple Simon bids you all "Adieu"

:sad:

Not the biggest fan of his tennis, and like Stupid Dream said, it's still sad to see him slump this badly. He's a top 10 player and not showing a lot for it...

Simon like many other players in the past, had one terrific year above his potential, and now backs where belongs.

Rainer's first win on clay this year (1-5 now)

Simon keeps his perfect record while playing for France intact :lol:

Sure, players don't always take Dusseldorf seriously, but there are a few there (Simon included imo) that should be looking at this event giving them some serious practice for RG. In which case, erm...this is not good! :lol: :help:

Just goes to show how bad slumps can become when you seriously lack confidence in yourself. Simon could do with a generous first couple of rounds at RG to get some momentum going again. Australian Open (and the tail-end of last year) seems like so long ago.

I am really surprised with this result as Rainer lost to Querrey last match plus Rainer lost all 4 matches they played.

Happy for Rainer but :awww: for Simon.

After watching a good part of this match, I can say this is a perfect representation of this utter mug era.

Shittler is one of the worst players I've ever seen and Simon isn't that better.

Schuettler actually had a few good years. Simon only had 2008.

Yeah. According to you every player is the worst player you've ever seen :rolleyes:

But only Schuettler's 2003 is comparable with Simon's 2008 :o

Yeah. According to you every player is the worst player you've ever seen :rolleyes:

Glenn should begin watch Futures tournaments to appreciate "ATP players" ;)

I mean there are worse players than Schuettler or Simon, for example on the Futures level.

You'd never know it reading GM. You'd think Simon was Brie Whitehead.

That said, his results are starting to resemble hers. :o

I'd say he needs a kick in the ass, but for now I'll hold to the idea that this WTT is utterly bogus. (Bizarre that it's ATP.)

Don't know. Shittler is pretty much the worst player in the history of the universe.

Shittler's game is so ugly and ridiculous it should be banned from the ATP.

Remind me again why si-pusher is top 10.I'am really starting to believe fed had mono last year,there is no-other explanation for his loss to this mug.

i really don't get it how you can close the year beating Nadal and Federer, and few months later you can only be proud having made Fognini your bitch, not because you play well, but because your opponent is retard and UE machine
