Google Down the Line!: WEEKEND WINNERS: Gilles, Patty

Monday, September 15, 2008


Gilles Simon - Bucharest

The Frenchie baller made it three championships on the year as he successfully defended his Bucharest title by defeating Spain's Carlos Moya. Gilles rises to the twelfth position in the ATP Race to Shanghai and sits a mere 48 points behind no. 8 James Blake. But, with the way James has been playing lately I'd say Gilles has as good a shot as anyone of booting him from the Race. Tough luck James.

Patty Schnyder - Bali

The Swiss lefty decides to grab some vacation time in Bali and along the way earns her 11th career title, 500th win, and first championship in more than three years by crushing up-and-comer Tamira Paszek 6-3, 6-0. Gotta love it.

  1. Holy cow, Rich. You've been busy today. Welcome back.

    Congrats to Gilles. He's really coming into his own. I hope he continues this into 2009 and doesn't pull a Nalbandian. Remember him winning everything last fall, and then eating his way through December? I still don't think he is down to his original weight.

  2. yes natch it was all pent up the last week - a verbal explosion of sorts
