There is simply no stopping Gilles Simon when it comes to the ATP Open 13 where the Frenchman boasts of a 29-11 win-loss result, the most successful record in his career. The former World No. 6 player, Simon was simply relentless against top-seed Daniil Medvedev. The 35-year-old veteran player was extremely powerful against the out-of-form Medvedev, defeating him 6-4, 6-0 to storm into the semi-finals of the ATP 250 event.
Gilles Simon has always got the better off the Russian, Daniil Medvedev as he extended his head to head tally to 3-0 against him. He broke the World No. 5 on five occasions out of the six opportunities he received and made it onward to the semi-finals of the tournament. Currently ranked at World No. 58, Simon will now face Canadian teenager and NextGen player, Felix Auger Aliassime for a place in the finals.
The young Canadian, who is seeded 7th at this tournament, Aliassime is enjoying a good phase of tennis. Coming into Marseille after finishing as a finalist at the Rotterdam Open 2020, the 19-year-old showed incredible talent as he ousted Pune Open finalist, Egor Gerasimov. Additionally, Aliassime boasts of a 1-0 head to head lead over Simon. It remains to be seen if the Frenchman can level up the scoreboard or Aliassime makes it to the finals of a tournament, in consecutive weeks.
