My body is so ready for Gilles vs Monfils and their 40 shot rallies! lol

Seriously though he isn't playing well and I'd put Monfils as the fave, but if he could fight out another win then I'd call a 4th round a big success.

Another hard-fought win for Gilles . He needs to keep improving, serve was better today and groundies sharper, but still not at their best.

L'Equipe:

Simon s'adapte à toutMalgré des douleurs aux cervicales et la canicule, Gilles Simon tient le choc et sort (2-6, 6-3, 7-6 [4], 6-2) Jesse Levine. Au troisième tour, il affrontera Gaël Monfils.

S’adapter, c’est sa seconde nature. Diminué par des douleurs aux cervicales, Gilles Simon s’adapte. Sans entraînement depuis quinze jours, Gilles Simon s’adapte. Quarante degrés sur le court encore 18 heures, Gilles Simon s’adapte. Comme au premier tour, il prend sa grosse demi-heure pour apprivoiser son corps et son adversaire Jesse Levine (2-6, 6-3, 7-6 [4], 6-2 en 2h50’). « Je joue mal, je me sens mal et je me fais complètement dominer. Je commence le match et je sens que je n’ai pas de solution, soupire le Tricolore. Il prend bien le jeu à son compte, m’envoie à droite, à gauche, il rate très peu, il sert pas mal. C’est dur. »

Après avoir perdu le premier set et sauvé quatre balles de break dans le premier jeu de la deuxième manche, le 16e mondial met en route. « Si je ne sauve pas le jeu de 1-0, ce n’est pas le même match», avoue Gilles Simon. Il sert un peu plus fort (jusqu’à 202 km/h en première balle, 173 km/h en moyenne, 12 aces), il frappe un peu plus fort et neutralise la patte gauche du Canadien avec ses changements de rythme. Mais il faut tenir. Alors il s’adapte et ne panique pas quand il perd son service à 5-4 sur une double faute et une faute en coup droit. Il faut aussi un peu de chance… A 6-5 (Av. Levine), l’attaque de revers d’Air Canada sort de quelques millimètres. Dans le séchoir géant, il peut souffler et le 88e mondial ne se remet pas de sa balle de troisième set.

Avec son physique de marathonien, Gilles Simon fait l’essuie-glace en offrant des balles cotonneuses et pique à la moindre balle courte (46 points gagnants). Quand les jambes commencent à tirer, le Français n’hésite pas à aller vers l’avant (12 points gagnants sur 19 montées) ! « A la fin, je suis rôti, j’envoie parce que je n’avance plus, explique-t-il les traits tirés. Il faudrait arriver à le faire tout le temps. » Dès le premier jeu de la quatrième manche, il enchaîne même service-volée ! Dans les tribunes, Arnaud Clément apprécie. Ce n’est pas la victoire du siècle, mais le 16e mondial résiste encore et attend désormais son pote Gaël Monfils au troisième tour.
S.D., à Melbourne

Gael got under Gilles skin for a moment, but nice reaction from Gilles. Up 4-3!

This sucks so much, he worked so hard to get to 2 sets up, and only need to hold 3 more times to get to the finish line and now he's injured and can't push up the left leg to serve, and have to move gingerly. This is cruel, very cruel. so angry I wanna cry.

If there's a God, he needs to somehow help Gilles out there.

I know he won't retire, but honestly there's no point of going thru it, there's no way in hell that he can win. Now my anger has turned into depression.

Now he's massaging his arm too, he has no legs so he's arming all his balls. He just better don't hurt his arm too. Really Gilles, don't keep hurting yourself, you are already fragile.

Ouch
I'm sad. He doesn't deserve that.
I still want him to win but that would such a shame if he can't play against Murray.
