Gilles Simon is going to be a player to watch at the US Open 2011. Simon just defeated Nicolas Almagro in the final of the German Open 6-4 4-6 6-4.
“I feel very, very good. I had to win so many tough matches this week. Today, the final was really hard to win. I had to play my best tennis and I’m proud to win this tournament.”
