Default Roland Garros R1: [11] Simon def. Harrison 3-6 7-5 6-4 6-1

Harrison had 6-3 *5-4 40-15, and was up a break in the third set.

Complete collapse from the American, but Gilles deserves credit for hanging in when things were ugly through the first two sets, where he was struggling with the wind, struggling with his serve, and making tons of errors.

Harrison was playing pretty well and really dominating the points through the first 1 3/4 sets. Simon's game was super passive and unimposing, hitting very short and allowing Ryan to dictate. Everything changed when the wind started kicking in and Ryan served for the second set. Really unfortunate, but a good win for Gilles, never played anywhere near his best, but a win is a win.

Simon had no business winning this match. Ryan played extremely well for the first set and a half and the 3rd set. The big points still prove elusive for the American. He grew frustrated very quickly and when that happened his game fell off dramatically. I think if Ryan was 5 years older he would have won this 3-0

Yeah, Ryan did kind of throw this away. He reminds me massively of Ryan Atwood from The O.C.- not only because they look similar but because they're both rather temperamental.

Maybe should point out that Harrison has had some pretty tough first round draws in the last few slams though - Soderling, Dodig (who he beat before he got Ferrer in r2), Cilic, Murray, Simon.

Simon had me worried there in the start.

Good for him to get through this.

Extremely well is too much. Ryan played decently, but he couldn't keep it up and he couldn't handle the wind. The wind came in and Ryan didn't alter the gameplan. He kept smacking at the ball, and missed. Then he got passive, and Simon got into points and started dictating more. He had no idea what it was going to take to win. He didn't deserve to take it here. Mentally weak and strategically ignorant.

Don't like Simon's game but I have so much respect for him, hoping he does well here in front of his home crowd.

Harrison did everything he could to lose today. I like his attitude but I have to say he can let his emotions rule his tennis.

Gilles was torturing Harrison, once Harrison got some chance then Gilles just took them back and played better.
Gilles should rise his level next round, good luck!

Atleast I don't have to worry about a replacement for the petulant American douche I hate once Roddick retires.

Harrison is a mental midget. Hoe can a hot-headed moron ever expect to advance? No way.

So disappointing after playing so well until serving for the second set.
