  • Simon and Monfils in Nice primetime action

    5/23/13 4:30 AM | Cheryl Murray
    Simon and Monfils in Nice primetime action Frenchmen Gilles Simon and Gael Monfils will be in action for the hometown crowd as the field competes in the round of 16.

    Gilles Simon (2) vs. Pablo Andujar

    Gilles Simon is ranked No. 17 in the world, far above Spaniard Pablo Andujar at No. 53. But Andujar has been in fantastic form, including an unlikely run to the semifinals at the Madrid Masters. Simon has played well enough during the European clay swing, but his best showing was at the small 250 event in Bucharest, where he made the semifinals.

    Simon might actually be vulnerable in this match. He wasn't overly impressive in his second round match against countryman Guillaume Rufin...and Andujar is player much better tennis than Rufin has.

    Prediction - Andujar for the upset.

    Gael Monfils (WC) vs. Robin Haase

    This is actually not a bad match-up for France's Gael Monfils...at least on clay it isn't. Haase plays fairly typical Dutch tennis; he has a big first serve and a game that works best indoors. He was fortunate to draw as his second round opponent No. 4 seed John Isner. The American has been dreadful on European clay.

    Monfils has been trying to make his way back from injury, competing in a Challenger event last week that he eventually won.

    The Frenchman will have the crowd behind him and the benefit of playing on a surface that compliments his game.

    Prediction - Monfils for the upset
