Recent fan comments for Gilles Simon:


Gilles' knee injury forced him to retire from his R3 in USO. Doctor's order to rest for 3 weeks so he's off the DC team. He will be back for Asian season. Tons of points to defend the next 2 mths. Even though I do not think he can defend them because the knee continue to be a problem, it is not going to heal without a long duration of rest (couple of months), that will make it hard for him to get deep into tournaments. Nevertheless, rest well and come back strong. Allez Gilles.
