    Tipsarevic, Simon square off in Bangkok semis A spot in the title match will be at stake when Janko Tipsarevic goes up against Gilles Simon on Saturday in Bangkok. The winner will face either Richard Gasquet or Jarkko Nieminen.

    Janko Tipsarevic and Gilles Simon will be squaring off for the sixth time in their careers when they collide in the semifinals of the Bangkok Open on Saturday afternoon.

    Tipsarevic won their most recent encounter 7-6(3), 5-7, 6-1 a few months ago in Madrid, but Simon still leads the head-to-head series 4-1 (including 3-0 on hard courts). The Frenchman prevailed most recently 6-0, 4-6, 6-1 on the clay courts of Monte-Carlo earlier this year and he also scored a pair of hard-court victories in 2011.

    Since getting a first-round bye as the No. 4 seed, Simon has been cruising. The world No. 19 beat Go Soeda 6-4, 6-4 then crushed Gael Monfils 6-4, 6-1 on Friday. He is now 37-20 for the season.

    Tipsarevic dismissed Hiroki Moriya 6-4, 6-4 before getting past Fernando Verdasco 7-6(5), 6-4. The ninth-ranked Serb is 50-19 for his 2012 campaign and in serious World Tour Finals contention. Recent strong results include a semifinal showing at the Toronto Masters and a quarterfinal finish at the U.S. Open.

    Based on current form, Tipsarevic in three sets is the pick.
