Gilles Simon Bio and Stats

The wiry, counter-punching Frenchman Gilles Simon reached a career-high ranking of No. 6 after a successful 2009 highlighted by a quarterfinal run at the Australian Open. That same year, Simon also won his sixth career title at Bangkok over Viktor Troicki, a player he defeated in the finals again in 2011 to win Sydney. Deep runs at the biggest tournaments in ’08 saw Simon reach the finals of the Madrid Masters and the semifinals at both the Canada Masters and ATP World Tour Finals. Injuries limited Simon to 40 matches and one title in 2010; he bounced back to capture two titles in 2011, including his ninth career title in Hamburg where he became the first French champion since Henri Leconte in 1986.  Simon swept Fabio Fognini, 6-4, 6-3, to collect his third consecutive Bucharest title in April, 2012. In an all-French final, Simon defeated two-time defending champion Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, 6-4, 6-3, to win his second Metz title and 11th ATP championship in September, 2013. The title came 13 days after the birth of Simon's second son, Valentin.
