I am home today watching Harrison Vs Simon. Very interesting match so far. Harrison was serving for the 2nd set but just got broken by Simon and now 6-5 Simon. Not sure what happened in between as my TV went all blank on me but after it got back, the crowd was booing Harrison ...the ever so usual notorious French crowd.
Anyway, pulling for Harrison who I find very unlucky when it comes to Slams - always facing a top 20 player in the very first round and it never helps his ranking.
He chucked his racquet away in frustration and nearly hit the line judge, and then had a little argument with the umpire after getting a warning. Unless it was something that happened after that.
Harrison has lots of ability but as with most youngsters just not mentally able to keep up that level throughout. Has constantly gone ahead in this match and keeps on getting broken back.
Good match this but ultimately I think Simon will see it through in four with one break of serve in each set. I'm going to predict 3-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4.
Edit: As I say that Simon gifts Harrison two break points and does the same as Harrison did earlier - chucking his racquet and nearly hitting the line judge before being booed by his own fans. Great support.
Simon saves them both.
