Fed withdrew.

Damnit, so now I can't relax, I want him to win first match badly then. And now the draw opens up, he probably will lose very early .

Alright, c'mon Gilles, it's Paris, you try your hardest, ok? Allez!

Solid win, 25 W 20 UE, 13/15 on the net, 7/5 6/1 , I think the surface actually suits him if he plays more or less agressive. With this win and Kohli loss he has virtually guaranteed a #19 finish, and he has a winnable match next vs Hanescu.

Congrats Gilles, I'm stuck at home because of Sandy so it was nice to be able to watch him win. Good performance today, he was aggressive when he needed to be.

Great, he won.

Didn't get to see much of the match, but based on the state, he did well. Next round is LL Hanescu, he should not have much problem (hopefully I don't jinx him by saying that). Allez Gilles.

Much better from Gilles today. If only he could bottle how he played in the 2nd set and just use that every time from here on out, he'd be back to top 10 in no time. Anyway, at least by playing well today, he's allowed himself the opportunity to take advantage of the draw opening up and maybe being able to make a deep run. We'll see. But again, well done Gilles!!

Simon : «Je suis assez frais mentalement»
Par Cécile Soler, 29-10-2012

Gilles Simon a réussi une entrée en douceur dans le tournoi en disposant de Marcos Baghdatis 7-5, 6-1. Séparé de son entraîneur Thierry Tulasne, qui assistait cependant à son match, le Niçois semble serein.

A Bercy

Dans quel état d’esprit êtes-vous arrivé à Bercy, plus pour vous faire plaisir ou gagner quelques points au classement ?
Gilles Simon : Ni l'un ni l'autre. Je suis assez frais mentalement pour la fin de saison. J'ai eu l'impression de ne pas pouvoir jouer au maximum assez souvent, et là j'ai l'impression que je peux le faire, je suis content de pouvoir jouer. S'il y avait un tournoi la semaine prochaine, je serais très content d'y aller aussi. Normalement j'ai plutôt une lassitude, mais là grâce au changement que j'ai fait ces derniers temps, je vais peut-être repartir sur quelque chose de plus nouveau ; je me sens avec beaucoup d'envies et j'aimerais seulement ne pas avoir de pépins physiques sur ce tournoi, aller le plus loin possible et perdre contre un mec qui sera plus fort.

Gilles, vous avez évité d’affronter Federer au prochain tour, est-ce un soulagement ?
Je serai très content de le jouer plus tard. Ce n'était pas une priorité de le jouer en deuxième tour de Bercy. C'est une chance. On va essayer d'en profiter. Ce sera face à Victor que je connais bien depuis longtemps. Je sais à quoi m'attendre.

Thierry Tuslane a regardé votre match, cela vous a-t-il fait plaisir ?
Oui, très. Il n'y a aucun problème avec Thierry. J'étais très content qu'il soit là.

Comment vivez-vous le fait d’être en solo sur le circuit ?
Je le fais parce que je sens que cela va m'aider. J'ai besoin d'être plus calme et plus détendu sur le terrain. C'est l'impression que j'ai aujourd'hui, ce sentiment que si je suis tout seul sur le terrain, pouvoir faire mes choix et prendre mes décisions, c'est plus facile de rester concentré sur mon match, de ne pas me disperser à regarder de droite à gauche.

Concrètement, comment vous débrouillez-vous?

C'est bizarre j'ai l'impression que tout le monde pense que les joueurs ont absolument besoin du coach pour réserver le terrain d'entraînement, trouver le partenaire, c'est quelque chose que j'ai fait quand j'avais 16, 17, 18 ans, je partais seul en tournoi ; ils étaient moins bien organisés que celui-là et il fallait se démerder. Et là, je n'ai pas l'impression d'être perdu. Je connais tout le monde. Beaucoup de joueurs me demandent de jouer, que ce soit pour gérer les terrains d'entraînement, gérer mes matchs, je crois que je commence à y arriver.


Tutu was there watching his match.


--------------------------------

This is another one article, he mentions very briefly his recent problem...

http://sport.francetv.fr/tennis/atpw...+%7C+Tennis%29

Pour son entrée en matière dans le BNP Paribas Masters de Bercy, Gilles Simon a réalisé une démonstration rassurante. Très en jambes, il a totalement dominé Marcos Baghdatis, qui a baissé pavillon rapidement, 7-5, 6-1 en 1h16 de jeu. Le Français se voit offrir un petit boulevard à Paris-Bercy, puisqu'au 2e tour, il affrontera le Roumain Victor Hanescu, remplaçant de Roger Federer forfait.

Jamais Gilles Simon n'a atteint les quarts de finale à Bercy. Cela pourrait se produire cette année. Car en plus de bénéficier du forfait de Roger Federer (N.1), qu'il aurait dû croiser dès le 2e tour, il affiche une forme rayonnante. Finaliste à Bangkok, il n'avait pourtant pas fait le plein de confiance dans les semaines suivantes, que ce soit à Tokyo, Shanghaï et Valence, où il n'avait jamais été capable de gagner deux matches de suite. A Paris, il n'a enregistré qu'un succès pour le moment. Mais il a été acquis de fort belle manière contre Marcos Baghdatis. "Ca va bien physiquement", se réjouissait-il à l'issue de son match. "Je vais essayer d'en profiter", ajoutait-il, pointant ses problèmes récurrents: "C'est plus un déséquilibre général dans la région du bassin. C'est différent des blessures au genou ou à la nuque que j'ai eues. Il n'y a pas de réel problème, mais je vieillis (sourire). Il faut remettre ça en place."

Adroit et efficace à la volée

Demi-finaliste à Tokyo et Stockholm, vaincu au 3e tour à Shanghaï, le Chypriote semblait retrouver le chemin de l'efficacité ces dernières semaines, jusqu'à son abandon en Suède au 3e set contre Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Pour ce premier match de la session nocturne de Bercy, il a eu besoin du kiné après seulement cinq jeux, pour manipuler son dos. A ce moment-là, le 32e mondial avait comblé son break de retard concédé juste avant (3-1), et la manipulation ne l'empêchait pas d'égaliser à (3-3). Les deux hommes restaient d'ailleurs au coude à coude, le 20e mondial passant à côté de deux balles de break au huitième jeu. Affichant un jeu ambitieux vers le filet, Simon parvenait tout de même à s'emparer une nouvelle fois de l'engagement adverse, grâce à un passing-shot en deux temps, qui lui offrait par la même occasion la manche (7-5) après 51 minutes de jeu.

Le deuxième set se révélait beaucoup plus à sens unique. Gilles Simon, sous les yeux de son ancien entraîneur, Thierry Tulasne, accentuait son jeu offensif, coupant les trajectoires et venant au filet très régulièrement pour imposer une grosse pression. Et cela marchait. Non seulement il était très talentueux à la volée (13 points marqués sur ses 15 montées dans le match), mais en plus Baghdatis commettait de plus en plus de fautes. Au quatrième jeu, il débutait avec une formidable volée haute de revers amortie, et finissait par un long rallye de fond de court au terme duquel son rival commettait l'erreur et lui offrait le break (3-1). La machine était lancée, elle ne pouvait plus s'arrêter. Il lui fallait néanmoins sauver deux balles de break au jeu suivant, et après 25 minutes dans le deuxième set, soit deux fois moins que lors du premier acte, Gilles Simon s'imposait 7-5, 6-1.

Moins stressé en solitaire

Voyageant volontairement en solitaire et sans coach, il se sent plus à l'aise: "Je le vois pas comme un break. J'avais envie de ça, de faire mes choix et prendre mes décisions, ne pas me disperser à droite et à gauche. A Shanghaï, ça m'a fait du bien car j'étais vraiment tout seul. Même quand j'ai perdu, j'étais bien sur le terrain, avec moins de stress. Il faut que je sois seul jusqu'à ce que je trouve ma façon d'être sur le terrain. Je n'ai pas l'impression d'être perdu." Et ce changement a probablement rejailli sur son état d'esprit: "Je suis assez frais mentalement pour la fin de saison, alors que d'habitude, ce n'est pas le cas. Je suis content de pouvoir jouer. Je me sens avec beaucoup d'envie. J'espère aller le plus loin possible et perdre contre quelqu'un de plus fort que moi."

Au 2e tour, au lieu de jouer Federer, c'est Victor Hanescu qu'il aura face à lui. Un Roumain, 61e mondial, qu'il n'a jamais joué sur dur, mais qu'il a battu deux fois lors de leurs trois duels. "C'est une opportunité, c'est une chance. Je préfère", glissait-il avant de plaisanter au sujet du Suisse: "Je serai très content de le jouer plus tard. Là, ce n'était pas une priorité de le jouer au 2e tour ici (rires)". S'il s'impose, cela pourrait être le Japonais Kei Nishikori, 16e mondial, qu'il n'a jamais affronté. Deux matches à sa portée pour enfin voir les quarts à Bercy.

This is the google translation of the highlighted part:
"It is a general imbalance in the pelvic region. This is different knee injuries or neck that I had . There is no real problem, but I'm getting older (smile). should put it up."
Was this the founding of those tests that he had after Asia? Not sure.

Well Gilles looked a lot more relaxed on the court today. Smiling in between points and just looking like he was actually having fun out there for a change. I'm glad he was able to take advantage of Roger's withdrawal and make the most of it. Hopefully he can keep going even further. Kei Nishikori next round.

And even though it's , who saw the Djokovic upset coming? Especially after a first set bagel. Wow!

Happy Halloween guys!

Nice for Gilles , he ensures the #18 spot, if he beats Kei he will end at least #17.

Easy match. He has enough time to do a walkabout when serving for the first set and still won it in 2 .

I wonder what's Wino's role with the DC team, he's been watching matches with Clement and gangs... Okay, saying it out loud is that I like Wino and I don't mind if he becomes Gilles' coach one day.

Anyhow, focusing on tomorrow...Nishikori a very tough customer, their first meeting. Allez Gilles.
