Pleasantly surprised by Simon. Looks like he figured out that pushing won't cut a deal against everyone every-time, so he tried to be aggressive and take matter into his own hands, sometimes with pace, sometimes with placement. After securing a break in the second set he tried to play safe and that opened a chance for Wayne to come back in the set, but Simon snapped out of it and saved most of the break points with big serves and fast aggressive CCs following them to the net. Good "life signs" from him. :yeah:

Easy for pushy pushy Simon, Odesnik was no challenge, horrible player, serves 3 DF to get broken, true champ
