After a loopy match towards Pablo Carreno Busta, Gilles Simon gained for his entry into the working at Roland-Garros. A hit to which the French returned.
We needed to wait till practically one o'clock within the morning to know the winner of the match between Gilles Simon and Pablo Carreno Busta. While the 2 gamers confronted one another in 5 units at Roland Garros, it was lastly the Frenchman who knew how one can be the most effective. A loopy match throughout which the general public was there to help Simon. And throughout an interview with The Teamthe 37-yr-previous participant confided on this success.
“It's by far, far the best atmosphere I've had”
” How I go ? (He points to the blisters on his hands) “One, two, the third one coming… Of course, not very well. It is sure that after the match yesterday (Tuesday), we say to ourselves that this double was not necessary. And I don't think Hugo either (he laughs). So it's sad. The cushioning you can't run anymore, you use hard your abs hurt… In short, everything is hard, the knees… There, I'm going to go for treatment. The problem is that I have very little recovery, in fact. It's not as if it was a match that ended at 7 p.m. and that we had time to eat well, to go for treatment, to go for a massage, etc. My recovery, it will start now, I will try to manage my time very well between now and the match tomorrow (Thursday). The atmosphere ? it was really very special. Honestly, it's by far, far the best atmosphere I've had. In any case the most touching. Because we might think at some point that we're a bit sure of the Davis Cup atmosphere, the one we've known before, in the sense that the guys are there from the start, they can send you a Marseillaise… But in fact, it's almost selfish to think of it like that, but it's almost even better. Because when we are in the Davis Cup, we play for France. There, they are there for you. Those who didn't want to see you, they didn't come. While the people who are supporters of the France team, even if they don't like you especially and they don't come to see you play, they are there, in the stadium, they sing. While there, it's people who were there for you. That's why I think it's the most beautiful atmosphere I've had. It wasn't full because we started late, but it was more than enough “, has defined Gilles Simonwho will now face Steve Johnson to hope to proceed his journey Roland Garros.
