David just up his game and broke back. Damnit Gilles, if you can't serve it out, forget the TB, no chance.

Well it's another one of those darn matches where we have to say that Gilles had his chances but couldn't compose himself long enough to win the crucial points and games, as well as what if's. What if he had won the second set. What if he hadn't wasted the whole first set figuring out how to play against Ferrer etc. etc. So frustrating, but we all know that these things come with the Simon territory. We love him anyway.

Gilles It seems as if he's never going to get to the top 10 again.

You almost have to laugh at how bad he is in tiebreaks and serving out sets. Oh well, at least he fought against a player who is a tough match-up for him. Now pull out of Nice and rest please!

Pretty much lack of confidence and belief in himself during the big moments is really what it comes down to. That's pretty much the case for the difference between the top 5 vs the rest of the top 15 or so as well. If Gilles can get over his fear of the moment again he can definitely be somewhere between 10 and 6 I think.

There is no shame in losing to Ferrer on clay. Almost without exception, the only people who beat him on that surface are the elite 3. He is one tough player.

Now Murray goes out to Gasquet, Gilles wouldn't have even had to play Murray if he had won.

elite 3, and Bellucci.
Well, no shame, except it's a shame that he really don't seem to believe that he can beat him, which is hard to understand. Because he didn't play Rafa like this in MC, and isn't Rafa even harder to beat?

Gilles has never beaten Richard on the main tour in 5 try, so it's not like there's a golden opportunity in front of him.

I'm beginning to think that he's afraid of getting back to Top 10 and the pressure that comes with it. He's 5 pts away last time and 10 pts this time, he needs to want it more to make it.

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

In the paper:

BATTU 6-0, 7-6 (5) par David Ferrer, Gilles Simon a été absent au premier set, et trop court au second, bien qu’il ait servi deux fois pour le set. « Je n’avais pas beaucoup d’énergie, dit-il. Ç’a été très dur d’entrer dans ce match, puis très dur de finir. Àchaque fois qu’il aurait fallu mettre un peu plus d’intensité et de jambes, j’étais trop juste. J’ai réussi à trouver un peu de relâchement au début du second set après avoir gagné mon premier jeu, ce qui m’a permis de le tenir un peu mieux. Mais face à lui, il faut être à fond. J’ai servi deux fois pour le second set, mais j’ai concédé les deux jeux blancs à chaque fois. Aujourd’hui, j’ai fait de belles choses, dos au mur, mais on ne peut pas gagner un match de tennis en étant dos au mur tout le temps. Il y a un moment où on est devant et où il faut savoir finir. C’était ma limite du jour. »

Well, not much energy again, which I already know, since I watched the match. Was hoping that he'll mention sth about next week, whether he's playing or not, but nothing. C'mon Gilles, have some sense, just rest up next week, (although I have a feeling that he won't).

This is reporting that he injured his ankle and will skip Nice.
Richard also injured his ankle and is going to skip Nice. So I hope ankle injury is a default injury that they use. Anyhow, just happy that he's resting next week, if this report is correct.
