It seems like Nishikori withdrew so Gilles gets to QF, not the best way but this gives him some really useful points for the ranking, he has now ensured to end #17 the season.

Wow, a bit shock to see Gilles getting so much luck here. Kinda looking forward to him playing against Kei, so it's a little disappointed that it didn't happen. But getting thru another round easily, I'll take it. Allez!

I'm excited for Berdy - Gillou match. It's been a big while since they last met (2009). Gilles leads H2H 4-2 though it's not DC, it is Paris and Berdy has improved a lot mentally and physically but Gilles is fresher... So I'd say tight match.

Apparently Gilles wasn't feeling well this morning and would have likely lost so he's glad that Nishikori pulled out. Hope his pain gets better vs Berdych

Tomorrow OOP:

Center Court starts 2pm, first match:
Simon Vs Berdych

The journalist asked a question about his neck problem, he didn't want to talk much about it cos he doesn't want his opponent to know too much...

On a entendu que Kei Nishikori avait déclaré forfait avant vous car vous aviez des problèmes de cou ?
(sourires) Je n'ai pas spécialement envie de m'attarder sur mes douleurs car je ne souhaite pas que tout le monde le sache. Je n'ai pas envie de donner trop d'informations à mon futur adversaire (Berdych). C'est vrai que je n'étais pas au top. Je me sentais bien ce matin, puis j'ai un peu coincé à l'échauffement sans signe avant-coureur. Mais à l'échauffement, je ne trouvais pas mon adversaire au top non plus. On jouait à côté et je ne l'ai pas senti très bien.

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

This is from the paper after R2:

MERCI QUI ? Merci Roger ! Roger qui ? Federer, bien sûr. Si le futur ex-numéro 1 mondial n’avait pas rendu les armes avant même de s’en servir à Paris, Gilles Simon aurait dû se le « farcir » hier. C’était prévu tel quel dans le tableau. Àla place, il a eu droit au lucky-loser Victor Hanescu, l’homme qui ne sourit que quand il se brûle. C’est ce qu’on appelle gagner au change. D’ailleurs, Simon a gagné (7-5, 6-3), malgré une crispation quand il servit à 5-3 au premier set. « Roger n’est pas venu et je ne vais pas m’en plaindre, disait notre 20e mondial. Cela dit, il reste encore du beau monde. » S’il avait hérité du « maître » , jamais Simon n’aurait été exilé, comme hier, sur la « patinoire », le court bas de plafond dit no 1. « On m’a proposé le central à 10 h 30, mais moi, à cette heure-là, je ne suis pas en état de jouer. » Lève-tard, le père Simon ? Pas du matin ? Non, rien à voir. Hier, Simon a passé trois fois moins de temps sur le terrain qu’à l’infirmerie. Mais pas de panique, c’est son pain quotidien depuis des semaines, la raison pour laquelle il arriva en conférence de presse presque deux heures après la fin de son match. « Tout va bien ! J’ai juste pas mal de soins et de mobilisation à faire avec le kiné (pour son dos et sa nuque, principalement). Un vrai grand-père ! » Il aura dû attendre son septième Bercy pour y gagner enfin deux matches de suite (*). Pour le troisième, il faudra mettre un ippon au Japonais Kei Nishikori, que Simon n’a encore jamais testé en vrai.

He was offered to play the first match on Center Court for R2 at 10:30am but he declined. They asked if it's bcos he's a late riser? He said no, it's because he has to spent 3 times more the time at the trainer than on court nowadays (so I guess it means he needs more time to warm up). He also show up at press conference 2 hrs after the match. But he said all is well, he just needs to do those things at the trainer to keep the mobility (or sth like that). He's like a grandfather now.

Wow ! This is all kind of disturbing about how much he has to maintenance his body these days. I really don't think Gilles is going to play as long as I thought he might now at this point. He'll be lucky if he reaches 30. I thought he might play to 33 or 34, but no way now if this is what he has to do day in and day out. I mean even if he wanted to, his body probably won't let him or he'll just be sick of the things he has to do in order to play or both. This sucks.

Allez Gilles against Berdych! Hope he's fully fit and has chances to win, I think he can make it if he plays his best.

My thought exactly .
Well, it is what it is, his skinny frame isn't going to endure the daily pounding much too long, I guess. As he said, at the moment, he doesn't need a coach, he needs physio (probably 24/7). We saw that, when he's completely pain free, he can play great tennis, so "tennistically" he's fine enough, if he can manage the consistency by maintaining his health, which is a big challenge from what's been happening these few seasons. Oh well. I just hope he can play to his max the rest of the week, because opportunity is knocking. This kind of opening in a ATP1000 is so rare to see. If he loses to a better opponent, then that's what it should be. But if losing because he can't play his best, then it's just sad.

Default Re: 2012 Hardcourt all the way! 100% going forward! Hopefully.

This is the itw, saw it on WLT, more clear.

Gilles Simon a profité du retrait de Kei Nishikori pour se qualifier en quarts de finale du Masters 1000 de Bercy. Le Niçois est chanceux, puisqu'il aurait dû affronter Roger Federer au deuxième tour, avant que celui-ci ne déclare forfait. Gilou affrontera Tomas Berdych en quarts. En conférence de presse, l'optimisme n'était néanmoins pas tout à fait de rigueur, puisque le Français se dit plus ou moins ennuyé par un pépin physique. Mais chut, il ne veut pas en dire plus...

Vous allez jouer au Lotto ?
Oui, il faut reconnaître que c'est ma semaine !

C'est un peu étrange, non ?
C'est vrai qu'en regardant le tableau, ça ne semblait pas facile. Mais, au final, tout s'est ouvert pour moi. Ce matin, je ne me sentais pas très bien. Et puis, mon adversaire a déclaré forfait. Je vais faire en sorte de me sentir mieux demain. Pour le moment, les choses tournent bien.

Qu'est-ce que vous aviez, ce matin ? On a entendu dire que c'était votre cou. Nishikori a peut-être jeté l'éponge avant que vous ne le fassiez vous-même...
Je ne veux pas vraiment expliquer en détails mon problème. Mais c'était une bonne chose qu'il déclare forfait, parce qu'il y a des jours où vous vous sentez prêt et, aujourd'hui, pour moi, ce n'était pas le cas ! Mais quand je l'ai vu s'entraîner ce matin, je me suis dit qu'il n'avait pas l'air bien en forme. Il avait l'air un peu fatigué.

Pourquoi ne voulez-vous pas parler de votre blessure ?
Je ne veux pas donner des informations aux autres joueurs. C'est comme ça. Je ne veux pas trop en parler. Si mes adversaires savent que c'est, par exemple, la cheville qui me fait mal, ils vont me faire courir encore plus !

Vous avez l'impression de vous améliorer ? Vous êtes confiant pour l'année prochaine ?

Vous savez, il n'y a pas de raisons que mon physique m'embête jusqu'à la fin de ma vie. Je suis sûr que les choses vont mieux aller. Jusqu'à maintenant, je me sentais bien. C'est en m'entraînant ce matin que je ne me suis pas senti terrible. Je ne pouvais pas deviner que ça se passerait comme ça aujourd'hui, je me dis que ça va aller mieux.

Vous pensez au titre et à la possibilité d'améliorer votre classement ?
Non. La seule chose sur laquelle je veux être concentré, c'est sur mon match de demain. J'ai arrêté de regarder mon classement.


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

Google translated:

Gilles Simon took advantage of the withdrawal of Kei Nishikori to qualify for the quarterfinals of the 1000 Masters Bercy. The Nice is lucky, since he should have to face Roger Federer in the second round, before it is forfeit. Gilou face Tomas Berdych in the quarterfinals. At a press conference, optimism was still not quite rigorous, since the French are more or less says annoyed by a physical seed. But shhh, he does not want to say more ...

You play the Lotto?

Yes, we must recognize that it is my week!

It's a bit strange, no?

It is true that looking at the chart, it does not seem easy. But in the end, everything is open for me. This morning I was not feeling very well. And my opponent has forfeited. I'm going to make myself feel better tomorrow. For the moment, things go well.

What you did this morning? We heard it was your neck. Nishikori may have thrown in the towel before you do that yourself ...
I do not really want to explain in detail my problem. But it was a good thing he withdraws, because there are days when you feel ready, and now, for me, this was not the case! But when I saw him train this morning, I thought he did not look in good shape. He looked a little tired.

Why do not you want to talk about your injury?
I do not want to give information to other players. It's like that. I do not want to talk too much. If my opponents know that, for example, the ankle hurts, they'll run more!

You feel like you improve? You are confident for next year?
You know, there is no reason that my physical bothers me until the end of my life. I'm sure things will go better. Until now, I felt good. This is causing me this morning that I did not feel terrible. I could not guess what it would be like this today, I think it will get better.

You think the title and the opportunity to improve your ranking?
No. The only thing I want to concentrate on my game is tomorrow. I stopped watching my ranking.

He looks relax in attitude but his body looks stiff today, or maybe I'm just seeing thing.

It's likely to go to third set the way things been going. Hope he can win this one. Allez Gilles.

He won! Yes.

Since I said that it will go to 3, he broke back, and then broke to ahead, and then serve 3 junk serve and go down 0-40 when serving for the match, and then serve 3 great ones to save all those BPs, and then hit an ace to seal the match. Pretty cool. And Tomas was smiling big when shaking hands, I wonder what he said to Gilles .

Gilles , unbelievable , really solid match, he was in the verge to lose the 2nd down 0-3 15-40 but he managed. Also, what a way to save the 3 BP's at the end
