This will be an oil painting of a match. When either has his back to the wall, they will come out fighting. They say the grass is always greener on the other side of the hill, but I can't imagine a better 2nd round matchup than this one.
He wasn't that magical against Copil, who was seriously poor. The big guy struggled all match with his movement, and was getting his feet "stuck" in the court too often. So off balance, it was hilarious, Simon just hitting down the middle of the court as well, still Copil struggled to get into position. Though he got trapped in Simon's web soon enough, which resulted in a racquet smash to my delight.
He went to SFs at IW and USO on HCs and won his first title on HCs so classifying PCB as a clay specialist is not very accurate anymore. He is struggling since USO though so i favor Simon in this matchup.
