He sounds less about his match in L'Equipe:
Quote:
Un vainqueur en pointillé
Gilles Simon, vainqueur de l’Argentin Acasuso, regrettait du déchet dans sa prestation.
VOILÀ UNE AFFAIRE qui marche. Autoritaire contre Marcel Granollers au premier tour, Gilles Simon a continué de faire la police hier contre Jose Acasuso. Et l’Argentin n’a pas moufté. Déjà, à Toronto, le Niçois avait eu la peau de ce drôle de loustic qui donne l’impression de s’être réveillé il y a cinq minutes mais qui peut balancer des tartines dans tous les coins. Simon connaissait le danger par coeur et ne s’est pas vraiment fait de frayeur.« J’ai fait un match inconstant tout en ayant la certitude d’avoir toujours le contrôle, expliquait le numéro deux français, seizième mondial, qui affrontera le vainqueur du match Del Potro- Bellucci. Je n’ai pas commencé comme je le souhaitais. Je voulais le faire cavaler de gauche à droite parce que je savais qu’il ne tiendrait pas la distance. Mais au lieu de ça, j’ai été trop prudent et j’ai joué trop doucement. Heureusement, dans ce premier set, j’ai très bien servi. » Et à 5-4, Simon, en parfait roublard, creusa le break décisif, bien aidé par la généreuse contribution de Jose le tamponneur. « Dans ce jeu, il en a mis partout, appréciait le Français. Je me suis fait bêtement breaker d’entrée de deuxième set mais je n’ai pas du tout paniqué parce que je lisais bien son service et j’étais sûr que j’aurais des occasions de recoller. Ce qui est bizarre, c’est que j’ai très bien joué pour me détacher mais vraiment moins bien quand j’étais devant. Mais bon, je ne fais pas la fine bouche : je suis autroisième tour et je n’ai pas grillé trop d’énergie. Tout va bien. »
"I played an inconsistent match, but I was always sure to be in control. I didn't take the start I wanted to take. I wanted to make him run a lot because I knew he wouldn't last the course. But I was too cautious and playing too slowly. Luckily, I served very well in the 1st set." And he broke at 5-4 with the help of Chucho: "He made UE all over the place in that game. I was broken in a stupid way at the beginning of the 2nd set, but I didn't panic because I was reading his serve well and I was sure I would have my chances to come back. The strange thing is that I played very well to break, but I wasn't playing so well when I was up a break. But well, I'm not going to quibble: I'm in the 3rd round and I didn't waste too much energy. Everything is fine."

And I am so not.

France-Argentine tonight, allez les gars!
But France is quite the underdog for the bookies, even though Gilles says in interviews he's the favourite since he's #16 and Del Potro #17 (I think he means it, he's so obsessed with the rankings. )

Sorry, what does your post mean, Tepasaf?
I thought maybe you were asking if he was injured because of some odds moves, but I can't see any change.
