of France will be aiming to make a run at the US Open this summer in Flushing Meadows New York and perhaps beat some of the best players in the world in the final Grand Slam event of the year.
Earlier this summer Simon reached the 3rd round of Wimbledon but he lost in straight sets to the home favourite Gilles Simon.
In 2008 Simon finished the year ranked inside the world’s top 8 and as a result he qualified for the ATP World Tour finals in Shanghai China where he reached the Semi Finals but lost in 3 sets to eventual champion Novak Djokovic.
Simon also earned 2 wins against Roger Federer and one against Rafael Nadal in 2008.
Last year Juan Martin Del Potro of Argentina won the US Open for the 1st time in his career when he caused a huge shock beating Federer in 5 sets in the final.
