- - SIMON 4-6 4-6 6-7(5) Simon had taken a break in the third set but he failed to defend it when it counted, was broken back and now we have a tiebreak. Minibreak for Simon to start, but it's quickly clawed back. At 3-3, Malisse thinks he has broken the Frenchman after a lovely backhand volley, but Simon somehow flies into the corner with a diving volley that he flicks across the net and in. Bravo! What a shot! Now match point, AND TAKEN AS SIMON GOES LONG! A victory for Malisse - and women, ho ho Verdasco or Zemlja next! Men's draw.
- - SIMON 4-6 4-6 Simon bleated about women earning the same as men yesterday, saying the men play longer and deserve more. However, he has just lost the second set and could well see his own earnings limited in South West London. Again broken at the end of the set.
- - SIMON 4-6 4-4 The second set has stayed with serve but not without some effort - the points and games are taking an age, deuce the standard and the last rally 34 shots long.
- - SIMON 4-6 SET! Malisse had a break point to take the set but he hits a return long and it's deuce. But another set point as he spins a crosscourt strike across Simon. And taken as Simon inexplicably goes long with a forehand aimed at the baseline!
- - SIMON 1-2 This match is also underway, and starts with serve.
