    BANGKOK 2011, Semi-Final: Andy v Gilles Simon. Approx 8.30am UK Sat 1st October

    Post  Admin on Sat Oct 01, 2011 5:01 am

    Andy produced another straight sets win today, over Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov, to book his place in the Semi-Final in Bangkok. His opponent will be Gilles Simon who took 3 sets to beat German player Mathias Bachinger.

    Andy leads their H2H by 7-1 with the only win for Gilles being in 2007 at the Rome Masters.

    The match is scheduled 2nd on Centre Court after the other Semi-Final starting at 1pm (7pm UK) between Gael Monfils and Donald Young.

    So, Andy is expected around 8.30/9.00am UK time - nice company for breakfast.

    I'm working from 7am. So I can follow along.Smile

    Andy loves playing Simon—let us hope he can keep up his good play against him.

    Sorry Andy, but with the rugby on at the same time, I won't even be watching livescore! Good luck anyway.

    Phew! Jolly thankful he wasn't starting any earlier, because I'm working. Just now got home from work and very relieved to find the first semi is still going. It's just past 4:30 pm my time here.

    After Young and Monfils. Who are playing a tiebreaker in the third set to decide who goes through to the final.

    I really don't like final set tiebreaks - though of course if there wasn't one in this case, we'd be waiting a lot longer to see Andy!

    ...and Young wins, 4-6, 7-6, 7-6. He'll face either Andy or Gilles in the final. Fingers crossed it will be Andy! cheers cheers cheers

    Yes, I'm disappointed too. But as long as Andy wins, I'll forgive anything... almost.
