I think this can go to distance. Simon hasn't been in great shape lately, struggling a lot even with players ranked below him. He is coming off two consecutive losses in the first rounds of two different tournaments played on USA, so I am not really convinced about his current shape. He holds at 77% and breaks at 28% on hard this year and he will face a very tricky opponent who actually holds at 80% and breaks at 28% so even better than the French. Stepanek played already 3 matches here during the qualification without dropping any sets and I believe can trouble Simon.
