    Tsonga and Simon clash in all-French encounter The French crowd will be treated to two of their own when Jo-Wilfried Tsonga takes on Gilles Simon for a spot in Sunday's final.

    World No. 8 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga had one good result in 2013 prior to this week. The Frenchman made the quarterfinals at the Australian Open, where he lost a thrilling 5-set match to Roger Federer. Since then, Tsonga has had just a first-round exit in Rotterdam to show for his efforts.

    As the No. 3 seed, Tsonga had a first-round bye. His two matches leading to the semifinals featured a straight-set win over Nikolay Davydenko and a more complicated three-set encounter against Bernard Tomic during which Tomic held match points.

    Gilles Simon has actually been the more impressive of the two players this week. He had a comprehensive straight-set victory over defending champion Juan Martin Del Potro in the quarterfinals and he'll come into Saturday's match with confidence.

    Tsonga will be considered the favorite, but with Simon's form, which was especially good against Del Potro, the No. 6 seed will have a good chance at the upset.

    Prediction - Simon in 3.
