Default Bucharest R2: Simon def. Sela 6-4 6-2

A lot of huge forehands throughout the entire match from Gilles. He played fast and he played offensively, served well. Outside of a shaky start to the match, this was no contest for Simon, and he basically did what he wanted to do, and didn't have to push himself much.

Dudi hit some great backhands as always, but didn't have enough to keep Simon off of him. Good competing in the final game from Dudi.

Simon will likely win the tournament if he plays at this level. He was way better than anyone else I've seen at this event thus far.

Sela played well, especially on clay against a much better opponent.

Gilles served well and hit his forehand well. He sometimes blows it against lower ranked opponents but if he plays like that he should win the title. His net play still needs work though.

I thought you were watching Schoorel-Lojda.

Good match by Simon, Sela did all he could but it just wasn't enough.

I would love to see Gilles win this, and if I take a quick look at the quarter finals, I'm pretty sure he will, I don't see anyone being able to beat him.

Simug is the new Almugro: vulturing small events in order to keep up that inflated ranking.

People are so clueless on this board. About 300 of his 2,300 points come from 250 events. If you only count his points from 500 events and above he'd still be 14th so I don't know what you're talking about.

He doesn't know what he's talking about either, so pardon him, Mike.

This is the 250 events points on their rankings at the moment:

Code:
Tsonga	900
Ferrer	500
Berdych	340
Tipsy	1040
Fish	400
DelPo	650
Isner	650
Simon	315
Almagro	740
Monfils	550
Monaco	570
This is why Simon is 12th in the world. I mean, he has only about 1/3 of Tipsy's, imagine if he has what Tipsy has, he'll be like 8th now. Time to catch up with the other's 250-event points, Gilles.

Further calcuation....
He's top 10 if you deduct all those 250-event pts from everyone:

Code:
Players	500+
Tsonga	3930
Berdych	3740
Ferrer	3660
Fish	2325
DelPo	2050
Simon	2005
Isner	1970
Tipsy	1780
Almagro	1525
Monfils	1525
Monaco	1445
Learn some new things everyday, right, Topspindoctor?
