Paire led 3:1 in first set, Simon led 5:3*, and then 5*:4 30*:15 in 2nd.


Out of 22 service games, 12 were breaks of serve.

Simon 2nd set 5-4 40-40 serving for the match and a DF
Then Paire led the following game 40-30 or maybe even 40-15. Not sure he took a point from that moment

Gilles said he has only trained 4 days on clay before his first round match as he needed a week off after the start to the year he has had. He said he wasn't bothered about losing early this week as it just gave him the rest of the week to train if he did. So I'd assume he is probably pretty rusty clay court tennis wise but has still justified his seeding.

This was his 18th MD win of 2015, it took him until the 1st round of the US open last year to get his 18th last year.
