Even though he is ranked No. 14 in the world, Gilles Simon is awful in Grand Slam play.
He's only made it out of the fourth round once, reaching the quarterfinals of the 2009 Australian Open.
Last season, Simon was knocked out in the second round, and it looks like that will be the result once again when he takes on Julien Benneteau.
Simon is coming off a five-set win over Danai Udomchoke, once again proving his struggles in these tournaments.
In the meantime, Benneteau is coming in with an easy three-set win over Karol Beck. He's also looking solid right now, losing in the final of his last tournament before entering the slam.
Simon still has a lot to prove, but it looks like he will be bowing out early once again.
Prediction: Benneteau takes it in four 7-5, 4-6, 6-4, 7-6
