This is the best of the grass GOAT's. It could go either way, but I think Del Potro will take it in 2 or 3.

Neither's best surface, I won't make a prediction but their matches are always close. Delpo won in R3 of Wimby last year in three tight sets, I think 7-6, 7-6, 7-5 and Simon got revenge in a close four setter at the Open.

I say Delpo in 3. Delpo has too much power in his game for the walking practice wall known as Gilles Simon.

Juan in 2 please!

Juan saves tennis in 2. Please.

Simon will win and I will drink your tears.

Del Potro is obviously the infinitely more talented and superior player, but Simon is a tough matchup for him, as are most pusher type players.

I still hope and expect Juan to save tennis here and take this without much fuss if possible.

oh dear I hate this match up. Delpo in fugly 3 sets

Simug could actually win here, but I'll go with Del Potro in 3.

07-31-2012, 03:53 AM
A rotten feeling that Simon will win 6-2, 6-3 :o

Fuck tennis.

Gilles played well in early round and has chance to upset Juan. Maybe in 3
