Simon was dreadful! Had the chance to serve out the first set twice and became a UE machine. Then took an MTO for his back midway through the 2nd set. France would've been better off playing Bennetteau or Llodra than Jillian

lol. Pico always shows up at Davis Cup, bet he will be horrible again next week and be an Unforced Error machine.

Watched the first set and a half of this, and my lord what a terrible match.

Good that Pico won.

Simon was horrible. It was very painful to see him play like that.

I don't think he will play again. The victory will depend on Tsonga and the double match. For the last match, I can't see Simon playing again seeing how poor he was today. It will probably be Benneteau.

Simon need to go on vacation and sort himself out. He really hasn't been himself in a long time.

Warlocq did a good job to tire Tsonga, Monaco will have a good chance on Sunday

Simon involved in another mind numbingly horrible match. The usual suspects will come out and say he's injured. If he is than he should be off recovering rather than dishing out this nonsense.

you don't think it was a rare off day for the master tactician?

he's probably tired from all of these years of pushing

let's be honest, tennis is a fun sport, but when you watch Simon play do you think he looks like he's having fun? his game style is so much hard work, it's not nearly as flashy or enjoyable as some
I'm not surprised he might be losing a bit of passion for it

Simon and monaco... I cant think of a better matchup for anyone new to the sport to run away screaming and never, ever watch another match in their life.

Furthermore, it might even be enough to avoid sport in general.

NID result really. Pico plays way better in DC matches and he has his number against Simug. Good win overall, and thoroughly deserved.

Simon really needs to stop playing while injured, it's counterproductive and a bad habit he's fallen into - he's almost expected to play unless his legs fall off. It'd be much better long term if he took time off to fully recover than trying to compete when he's evidently struggling.

Monaco played really well except for that slump in the 1st set, surprising considering he didn't even win match this season outside DC. He may have to play a crucial match against Tsonga on Sunday so it's good he won it in straights while Jo had a long match.

Given how Tsonga had such a tough time against Berlocq, I'm starting to like Monaco's chances against Tsonga on Sunday.

It would be a very huge ask for Monaco to pull off the upset on Sunday, but it doesn't seem as hopeless as it did at the start.

Simon should have won. There are no fake excuse to look for. He is 1-7 in DC matchs. Benneteau is clearly a better choice for me. He like to plays against the odds.

Clement himself would've been a better pick instead of Simon in this match. My God was this the worst performance of the year or something like that? :superlol:
