Gilles Simon didn't get his country's Davis Cup weekend off to a good start at all.
The Frenchie baller, who I thought looked out of sorts yesterday was defeated by Tomas Berdych 7-6 (3), 4-6, 7-6 (2), 6-3 in the opening rubber in Ostrava giving the Czechs a 1-0 advantage. But Jo-Wilfried Tsonga saved the day defeating Radek Stepanek 7-5, 6-2, 7-6(1) to draw even with the host country.
Sneaky Simon, I'm thinking you owe Jo-Willy some of that same racquet attention now. And you should allow us to watch. All of it. Now.
