    World No. 15 Gilles Simon breezed through his second-round match with qualifier Frederico Gil, 6-3, 6-0. The 27-year-old Frenchman secured five of 9 break points in just 63 minutes.

    "I played very well," said Simon. "The conditions as they were today suit me well also. They are not too fast. The ball doesn't bounce too high. So I never feel I'm outrun, and I can play very long rallies.

    "When I feel good, as I did today, then I am able to go from defensive play to aggressive play very quickly, and then it is tough for my opponent to find a way of outrunning me."

    Simon ended the match with 81% of his first-service points captured.
