THE CHAMPIONSHIPS, WIMBLEDON
[CR13] Gilles Simon (FRA) vs. [CR18] Gael Monfils (FRA)
As much as I admire the tennis talent and entertainment skills of Monfils, I am glad that his friend and countryman won and gets to play in the round of 16 on Monday.
SIX REASONS WHY SIMON GETS MY VOTE
1. He will fight to win the match, despite his odds.
2. He never has manufactured excuses.
3. His subtle flair is appealing.
4. His consistent play gets your attention.
5. He has a better record than Monfils against Tomas Berdych 6:4.
6. As a result of #5, we will get a more competitive match between the two.
SCORE: Simon def. Monfils 3-6,6-3,7-6(6),2-6,6-2
