This match needs badly a PFL unbiased analysis thread, but since he's banned, I'll do it! :devil:

But I'm not calling Simon a pusher, cause I don't want to receive a Casp83 disapproval PM! :lol:

2nd meeting, H2H 1-0 for Thiem, a straight set victory at Indian Wells.

I guess this tournament is a good chance to see if Simon is really starting to play well again (since he's abysmal this year until now, 8-11 only) or last week was just Rafa playing too bad.

I think this will be a 3 setter and Simon will win. Thiem didn't look good today and he'll probably be tired tomorrow.

I'm thinking Thiem, he generates pace well and the only reason he struggled with Johnson was because Johnson was hitting big (at least on FH and serve).

Thiem didn't look very good yesterday, too many unforced errors and he really struggled against Johnson. On the other hand if Simon plays even half as good as he played against Nadal last week, then the frenchman should win this quite easily in front of his home crowd. Simon's gonna push Thiem into oblivion and just wait for those UEs.

Simon in 2. Thiem isn't at 100% at the moment like everyone could see yesterday.

If he loses he can regroup and get ready for RG (hoping for a good draw :p )

Most of this season Simon has been playing at like 10%, so there's no guarantee how he will perform today. I say Gilles in 3. Hopefully a good match!

Well if gilles brings the kind of form he had against nadal then he'll take care of dominic easily and if dominic plays anything like he did yesterday than it wont be pretty.
however if gilles is playing the way he has been all season except that match against nadal than this could be one very ugly and very long 3 set horror fest(again assuming domi plays like he did yesterday)

its hard to say really

i think the safe bet is gilles in 3

Gilles is the favourite here but if Thiem cuts down his UEs then it can be 50/50. Of course provided that Gilles cares enough after the showing against Nadal.
