    Who else here likes Gilles Simon's game? His movement and anticipation are solid, his strokes are simple and clean, plus he plays very smart. I really enjoy watching him play, he has had some huge wins! I would kill to have his game...

    I love Gillou's game...so laid-back...the laser forehands he can produce with so little apparent effort are just amazing...

    He's so smart on the court. He's like a pusher with some real shots here & there. There's a genius to his style of playing. I know after two sets with Federer he only served up to 108mph which shocked me.

    Right, but it can be said for every prayer. They are all painful to watch when they suck.
    I like watching Simon. He's a lot of fun for me. Great defense, and suddenly some shots that seem to come out of nowhere. Very smart player.

    He is french, and he is fast. Anywhere you hit the ball, he will be there

    I really like Gilles, if he didn't get injured he could be in the top 10 players.
