Re: 2013 Australia, new adventure begins in Down Under
I know it's not much of a comfort but we all know that Gilles had Monfils beat before he started cramping and there wasn't really much chance in him beating Murray so yes he should've made it to the 4th round and gotten the extra bit of points, but, at least he made it to the 3rd round with no warm up tournament and being sick. Also, in true Simon fashion, he is showing what a fighter and stand up guy he is. Without question if this was Monfils, Gasquet or Tsonga, they would've retired long ago. That's not Simon's style. That's where he breaks away from the mold of most of the french players. He doesn't quit.
