Frenchman Gilles Simon will be looking to make an impact at the Masters 1000 event in Miami this week, Simon has been in poor form lately he was beaten in round 2 at Indian Wells by Brian Dabul of Argentina.
Simon enjoyed without doubt the best year of his career in 2008, he beat the World Number 1 Roger Federer twice at the Masters 1000 event in Toronto and at the Masters Cup in Shanghai.
The Frenchman also reached his 1st Masters 1000 final, in Madrid when he beat Rafael Nadal in the Semi Finals before losing to Andy Murray in the final.
It will be difficult for Simon to win the title in Miami given the strength of the field but if he can find his best form then he has a shot at pulling off a few upsets this week.
Roger Federer will be the favourite to regain the title this week.
