Match got a bit interesting in the second set when Wawrinka started hitting out without inhibition after falling behind a double break at 1-*4, but overall way too many errors from Stan to win the match, he received treatment for a lower back/upper leg issue at 1-*2 in the second set. Simon was decent, served well and didn't have to get out of his comfort zone too much. Stan couldn't consistently find a way to finish points off without errors. His serve bailed him out for most of the match, and he saved a handful of match points down *1-5 in the second set with winning serves/aces, but Simon was overall too solid on the day.
I love Stan's game when he is playing well. Unfortunately, however, that is not often enough. He can be so erratic! A real wasted talent. If the other top French players had Simon's attitude, they could win some tournaments. Gilles has the brains, the other's: Monfils, Tsonga and Gasquet, the talent.
