Never in doubt.

3rd title for Simon, the level of Benneteau's game went down after the first set, but he looked like the better player at the start.

Well done Gilles :yeah:

Simple Simon wins another title and this time he qualified for the event, so he won 6 matches this week, not counting the walkover.

Benny had the boney git in the 1st set but from nowhere played an awful 12th game.

Nobody cares because Simon sucks and is a pusher with no game.

True, yet he's won 3 titles. One of them indoors. Surreal.

A classic MTF style comment :rolleyes:

I still prefer clever pushing than brainless ballbashing. I have to admire somebody who has no game, sucks and is a top 50 player :worship:

By the way, can somebody enlighten me...he was ranked around no.40 and had to qualify for this Casachallenger. I don't get it :retard:

He didn't sign up for the original entry-list, he applied for a late wildcard but the tournament gave it to Tsonga instead (El Aynaoui and Lamine Ouahab also got one). It was the right decision I think, it would be been cruel to Ouahab for example if a promised WC had been taken away from him.

In the end, the weak and limited qualifying draw was little more than light training for Simon and didn't affect him.
