Mixed emotions here. Simone had to fight off break points and openings on his serve throughout the match. Saved 8/11 break points. He was up a break twice in the second set, lost both, but broke again to win the match. I'm very happy to see Simone winning two tight, long matches here. His fight and determination is coming back and it's great to see and with self-belief, plus having eye surgery early this season, he should continue to progress in his career.

I originally wanted Florent to win this, I'm disappointed for him. He would have qualified in other sections. Hopefully he goes deep i Le Gosier next week and can make a move to the top 100 before the year is out.

There are several open spots for qualifiers in the draw, this is Simone's opportunity to regain a top 100 ranking. Hopefully he takes full advantage and takes confidence from winning through a difficult qualifying section.
