Absolutely a must-win for Simone in front of the home crowd, and he got it done.

Now, all he can hope for is Fer V. to be injured, exhausted or tanking, because he has no shot otherwise.

Tanking, this can happen. We have seen already some sensational Italian wins on that court :).

He won the dbls too. That will put him in fine fettle.

Most ATP players would like a steady diet of Gruel.

Yes, but he wins just enough on the ATP, and plays well in challengers, which keeps him top 100. But on the Masters Series level, Gruel (and Simone at this point sadly) is a dream draw.

We definitely have. I like Fernando but Simone needs the wins much more than him, so hopefully he finds a way to surprise and win. Even if he keeps it competitive but doesn't quite get the win, I'll be satisfied.

You're right. I just couldn't resist the bad pun.

This Gruel must be cruel.
