WTF, Gilles are you kidding me? Don't lose your serve.

He's just moping around too. No energy, no fight today at all.

Okay, very rare that I want him to get angry at himself, but I'm liking that he just yelled at himself. A little emotion would be good for him. He's so flat that I want to kick him to give him a little push.

Thank goodness, a win is a win. He'll have to play better next round but I'm confident he will.

Well, that ends rather abruptly. I'm glad, cos it's horrible to watch. He got away with such a lackluster performance, won't be so lucky next time against a better opponent, like GGL.

He won in straights , now GGL again, who's playing great in Rome ( he destroyed Falla, Karlovic & Andujar), so it will be tough IMO, allez Gilles for that match!

Part of the problem was the horrible conditions on the court. The wind was really swirling down there and having to go from playing against the wind to into the wind isn't easy. Especially when it's your first match, and then when Simon got irritated by that fact, it also negatively effected his game. Also, Young did up his level a bit in the second set. Chalk it up to first match jitters. Now that he's gotten that first match under his belt, hopefully he can relax some and start playing more up to form again.

Another battle with Lopez who played pretty well last week. Good luck Gilles!

Mike S., unfortunately, here in the US, Gilles' matches won't be shown even if he IS on a TV court, unless it's a final or he's playing one of the top 3, or Isner.

If he wins the next match, he plays Ferrer. I guess there is a chance that we could see that one, unless one of the top 3 is playing at the same time--or Serena or Sharapova.

Default Re: Clay season 2012, "Take Two" most definitely

a short paragraph in the paper:

Gilles Simon, vainqueur 6-2, 7-5, de Donald Young montrait le même soulagement. L’américain, qui n’avait gagné qu’un match sur terre dans sa carrière, avait servi pour le deuxième set à 5- 4. « Les conditions de jeu étaient dures. Dans ce bordel, c’était difficile de garder le rythme, confirmait le Français après sa treizième victoire sur terre. Je n’étais pas en grande forme et le deuxième set a été limite. Mais j’ai profité de son manque de confiance à 4-5 pour débreaker. Je le sentais fébrile et la machine s’est enrayée. J’espère que ma baisse d’énergie ne va pas durer face à Garcia Lopez. »

Well, I hope he has more energy tomorrow, he'll need it against GGL.

Gilles won the first set but is down a break in the second, 4-1. He can't make it easy on us for once.
