Happy for Benoit. Wish there was a stream would have liked to have seen what went wrong for Gilles. There was a report of him having trouble with his neck, wearing a sort of brace in training, I don't know if that had any influence on his game.

:lol: at expected. Haven´t watched the match sadly, but pretty sure there was sth wrong with Simon to lose like this against Benoit at this stage of the kid´s career

He obviously didn't like what Simon did to his sponsor at the Aussie Open

Who was expecting something- good result from Gilles on this tournament, is naive- this is pretty fast indoor- and Simon has average Serve- maybe this 1R he should win, maybe it would be better for him to compete not here but in Latin America- in Brasil he would have chance to win the whole tournament.

Great win for Benoit. Let's see what you can do v Ljubo. Getting closer and closer to the top 100.

Too bad to hear Gilles was potentially injured. Paire will be one of the better Frenchman probably this time next season. Major talent.

People still calling Gilles a pusher. :lol:

Lol, no. Gilles is great on fast surfaces and awful on clay. :lol:

Anyway, I have mixed feelings about this. Hopefully Benoit can keep on going here at least. And hope everything is ok with Gilles' neck.

When Simug played out of his mind against Federror people thought he had changed. Good to see Simug is back and balance is restored to the force :lol:

Paire, at least try to back it up with a win against Mathusalem. Otherwise, get lost

Brilliant result for tennis. Paire is quite a good player, Simug isn't.

Yeah, it's not like Simon could ever beat Nadal or anyone at a Masters event.

Hmm, it's tough to gauge Paire's potential. He can lose early in a challenger, or post an impressive upset. We shall see.

damn another excellent looking youngster coming through the ranks. He will be some player one day. Bad loss for Simon though against a guy who he as of right now is superior too and after a GREAT start to the season. Simon will back in the top 20 soon enough regardless.

As for Simon being a pusher, he is anything but. Will expand on this later
