  • Simon ousts Garcia-Lopez at Mutua Madrid Open

    5/9/12 11:36 PM | Ricky Dimon
    Gilles Simon cruises past Guillermo Garcia-Lopez in straight sets on Wednesday. Next up for Simon is a third-round clash against Janko Tipsarevic.

    Gilles Simon's hot streak continued with a comfortable 6-4, 6-3 win over Guillermo Garcia-Lopez in the second round of the Mutua Madrid Open on Wednesday. Simon held all nine of his service games to advance in hour and 30 minutes.

    The Frenchman completely dominated on serve in set one, winning all 14 of his first-serve points and dropping a mere two points in five service games. As a result, one break at 2-2 was easily enough for Simon to seize the early advantage.

    Simon's second break of the day came at 3-3 and that proved to be the difference in the second. Garcia-Lopez finally earned his first break chance one game later, but he failed to convert. The 94th-ranked Spaniard double-faulted to bring up match point at 3-5, saved it with a second-serve ace, then saved two more. Simon, though, finally converted his fourth opportunity for the match-clinching break.

    Next up for Simon is Janko Tipsarevic, a three-set winner over Federico Delbonis. Simon leads the head-to-head series 4-0 after winning a recent matchup in Monte Carlo.
