Somehow is here a surprise in the air but betting towards Gilles Simon is always a double-edged sword. On the one hand, Stan Wawrinka is known for his excitement in the early rounds, just as Simon was able to surprise him in his career. On the other hand, the direct comparison is more for a success for the French player. Although Stan the Man is in the balance with 4:3 in advance, Simon won the last three of the four matches on hard, including 2014 here in Shanghai.
Together with the very convincing performances this week, I trust Gilles Simon a good resistance against the Swiss. The betting odds are simply too good and a small bet on the outsider is also included.
