Gilles Simon Triumphs at the Open de Moselle

Gilles Simon defeated fellow frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga to win the Open de Moselle in Metz 6-4, 6-3 to win his first title of the year and 11th title of his career.

It was Tsonga’s first tournament back after recovering from an injury at Wimbledon in July. The players were seeded 1 (Tsonga) and 2 (Simon), respectively.

Simon broke Tsonga twice in each set and took advantage of a multitude of unforced errors to seal the match.

“I felt that I could take my chance and I’m very happy,” said Simon, post-match. “I saw that Jo wasn’t able to serve at his best.”
