At the end of week #1 Simon and Djokovic emerge as the two most impressive Players.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gilles Simon’s counterpunching wore down former US Open champion Juan Martin del Potro Sunday at Flushing Meadows, as the No. 12 seed outplayed the 2009 titlist 4-6, 7-6(5), 6-2, 7-6(3) in a grueling third-round match on Louis Armstrong Stadium. The 26-year-old whacked 11 more winners than del Potro, while hitting 29 fewer unforced errors to prevail in three hours and 57 minutes, reaching the round of 16 in New York for the first time in his sixth appearance.

 

“I was break up, 3-2 [in the fourth set], and then I started to play a little bit shaky. Was hitting harder and harder every time,” said Simon. “Finally I started to be tired and it was really hard to play at the end of the match. It was very good to finish in four sets.”
