Was checking Rennes draw/results and bumped into this ..... just WOW !
I mean Gilles was awful all year losing first rounds almost everywhere, but Teimuraz was doing the same thing on challengers (after the SA challenger in February )

Anyone watched this match ? How did Gillies manage to lose ?

What is this, 2009?

Watched some of it and not that surprising to see Simon lose against a powerful hitter on fast indoor hardcourt in his current form, he's now just a pusher with a shit tier serve without any of the redeeming qualities that made him great in the past. Ramos Viñolas and J.M. Cerundolo would've done better today

BIG GABBY! 😎 (y)

any run of the mill "surface changes anything" geek will tell you Simon lost because they're playing on super fast indoor courts that basically play like early 90's carpet.

Great result! Gabashvili not able to fix matches anymore has made him play to win in the last couple of years and as a result he did beat some good players.

Simon is absolutely done tho, just stick a fork in him. Dude serves like Yulia Putintseva on a bad day, can't chase balls like he used to, misses easy shots and on top of everything his head is not right, you can see he's nervous, frustrated and ready to implode at any moment.
