Came back (or rather Golubev played crap) from 4-6 and a break down. :woohoo:

Simon didn't play well for the first set and a half. Then Golubev's level dropped and he handed Simon the second set by dropping his serve twice. Simon raised his level in the third and managed to close out the match on his first attempt. Simon will need to raise his level if he wants to trouble Soderling. Anyway, congrats Gilles on your first masters win of the season (about time too).

Golu blew up hard in the 2nd.

Simon looked decent in the 3rd at least. He'll likely get badly beaten next match though, you can't push against Sod on this court.

not gonna lie this was a horror match, happy with the result, but simon either hit it dreadfully short, or long. golubev was in full self destruct mode end of the 2nd set, and the 3rd set had a matter of when not if for simon feel about it.

still simon has picked up another win, no matter how ugly (though he looked so sexy today lol)
