Good riddance to Clownfils. Didn't matter if Simon is tired or fresh, he is Murray's mini-me AKA Murray will always beat Simon.

would be better if Monfils won here as he has more chances against Mandy and has a solid attacking game and better serve. Simon has zero chance, especially after 5 sets.

Come back Davide Sanguinetti, all is forgiven.

What a brutal pushfest that was. It was like the battle of the walking dead out there. These two should never be allowed to play each other ever again. Simon is always boring but the amazing thing was Monfils had one of the most entertaining matches of the 1st week vs Dolgopolov.

I'm really struggling to understand Gael. With the kind of athleticism that he has, why isn't he more aggressive and attack the ball when opportunities arise?

Such much wasted potential. So frustrating, and I'm not even a fan of his.

While I thought Gilles played well for the first two sets, (the match got bad once Gilles got injured mid third set) the reason they usually play this way against each other is the match-up. Gael knows Gilles loves pace so he loops the ball to not give Gilles any pace and then because Gilles can't create his own pace he ends up pushing the ball back as well so it ends up a battle of wills as to who blinks first. That said, I have no idea why Gael didn't change his game plan once it was clear Gilles couldn't move.

I know it's shocking, but it seems like at the AO, there are real tennis fans who are watching the matches (which was also noticable earlier in teh tourney when they applauded Monaco for his effort) You don't see too many of those posting here in GM.

This match was sooo painful to watch. I wanted to get into it, I really did, but those "baseline exchanges" amounted to nothing more than club level warm ups.
