    Monfils upsets Fognini, Simon advances It was a good day for the French in Nice as Gael Monfils pulled off an upset win over Fabio Fognini, while Gilles Simon breezed through his second round match.

    Gael Monfils def. Fabio Fognini 6-2, 7-6(5)

    France's Gael Monfils scored another upset win, as the world No. 109 struggles to re-find his form after a series of injury lay-offs.

    Fognini had a bit of a mental collapse in the tiebreaker, losing five points in a row to hand Monfils the win, but even still, the Frenchman played a good match to advance to the third round. Monfils finished the match with two aces and two double-faults. He will take on Robin Haase, who defeated John Isner on Wednesday.

    Gilles Simon (2) def. Guillaume Rufin 6-4, 6-3

    This match wasn't as easy for Gilles Simon as the scoreline suggests. The Frenchman, who nabbed the No. 2 seed, faced seven break points and was broken twice, once in each set. It was fortunate for the Frenchman seed that Rufin, who is ranked No. 102 in the world, had so much difficulty holding onto his own serve.

    Simon ended up with five breaks of serve to finish the match. He will battle Spaniard Pablo Andujar in the next round.
