From *4-0 to 4-6 in the final set for GGL. Also had *40-0 at 4 all in the third.

Simon boosted his service percentage from the middle of the third set onward which helped matters in his regard. Great comeback win for him. 10 breaks in 24 service games overall, five each.

Simon, always likes to make things hard on himself, but usually takes it in the end, AO12 R1 being a great example of this.

I don't know what he was doing going down 4-6, 6-2, 4-0 in the first place but great comeback! For all the things people say about him, the one thing you can't say about him is that he doesn't fight.

I wonder what happened to Simon - he's at 6/4 1/1, then suddenly 6/4 2/6 0/4 and a bagel likely.

Fights it off then wins six games in a row, an enormous WTF at both of them really.

the usual shit will get posted in this thread, but i'd take gilles over all the mental midget mugs on the atp these days. all the talk of pushing is totally void because mental toughness counts for so much in tennis and gilles has it in spades.

13th win at masters series tournaments this year already for gilles :)

Ferrer, Simon, Murray and Gasquet in the same section of the draw :help: :facepalm: Let's see who prevails when push comes to shove (pun intended).

Oh well, hope Murray makes the semis. Guess he's the lesser of four evils.

Why do I feel like I've heard this before, oh yeah, it's cause I have.

Terrible. Tennis clearly lost here.

Still, good signs from Nalbandian and some jizz-worthy shotmaking. But please, Nalby, don't just show up to play the top 5 players. Get fit and have a late career surge, please. Tennis wins when Nalbandian is playing well.

Ferrer, Murray, Simon and Gasquet in the same section of the draw :facepalm: This section will be mugged to no end, push, push, push... Hope Murray makes it, though, he's the lesser of four evils.

Eh good memory.

It was easy to predict it was going to happen - Gasquet beating Lorenzi and Simon beating Garcia Lopez today to make it a section of hell in the draw.
