Rafa Nadal v Gilles Simon

Want to post this before the match - Taken from the Canandian Press

PROUD PAPA: Rafael Nadal's third-round opponent at the U.S. Open, Gilles Simon of France, got his wish: an afternoon match Sunday, rather than a night match.

Simon had a son born Thursday back home in Europe, and he's eager to go see the baby. After winning in the second round, Simon said he hoped he would face Nadal during the day, so that if he loses, he can make it to the airport in time to catch a flight. Playing at night wouldn't have allowed that.

When Simon's concern was relayed to Nadal, the U.S. Open's top-seeded man said: "Really? If he wants, I'll buy him the tickets."

Simon and Nadal — whose first two victories in the tournament both came under the lights at the end of the day — were scheduled for the third match in Arthur Ashe Stadium on Sunday, when play starts at 11 a.m.

Congratulations to Gillou and what a lovely man Rafa is!
