Pushing aside, there were some brilliant rallies and great shotmaking. Simon hit a ~90 MPH forehand on the baseline down breakpoint in the third set and a grueling rally.

Also, Harrison played exceptionally well at times in the second set, I don't really see that so much as a Simon choke, as Harrison with the American crowd behind can go on intense streaks.

I hope there are highlights posted on this match, I missed the hug at the net

Ryan got frustrated with Simon returning everything so he went into a pushing mode in the second set , almost work though . Hopefully, he doesn't have to play him anytime soon, not sure if I can take anymore slugfest like this.

Bottom line though is Ryan needs to improve his first serve significantly. Hitting 1 ace in the last 2 sets is atrocious for someone with a live arm like he has. Get a few more free points per set and matches like these would be a hell of a lot easier to win.

I did wonder why he didn't slice more. It seems when Harrison was either too excited or too frustrated he'd try to hit through Simon, which on this court is suicide. Simon just moved faster and reflected the pace.

There was NO serve from Harrison in the 3rd set whatsoever. He was trying to hard to be smart about the pushing, forgot how to do the basics...

Simon got pretty lucky and the 'breadstick' included a ton of extremely tough fought games. Harrison looked really good at some points in this match, has much more potential than Simon ever did.

nice hug at the end though ahhaha

I saw the match from start to finish. Harrison bottled the big points, crashed in the TB, had crybaby hissy fits, and didn't have a chance against Simon in the rallies. It only went to a third set because Simon's form dipped. In my opinion, Simon was never in danger of losing it.



And I don't care about Harrison allegedly having more potential than Simon ever had. It's easy to be hyped up as the next big thing when you're the only young American who isn't playing like shit.
