Gilles Simon did not tremble. Solid for his entry into the running in Metz, the Frenchman easily won against David Goffin (6-3, 6-3) on Tuesday evening. After a perfectly managed first set, carefully avoiding conceding any break point to his opponent, the 175th in the world had a little more difficulty in the second. But after being broken in the fifth game, he managed to reverse the trend by pocketing the Belgian’s service twice in stride.

Launched, Simon, who was able to win the long rallies that punctuated the match, finally won the match on his first match point. The one who triumphed at the Moselle Open in 2010, 2013 and 2018 will be opposed to the Italian Lorenzo Sonego, who defeated the Russian Aslan Karatsev (39th) a little earlier in the day (7-5, 6-3). Led 4-1 in the last round, Arthur Rinderknech also managed to catch up to eliminate the Spaniard Jaume Munar in three sets (6-2, 2-6, 7-5). The Frenchman will face Georgian Nikoloz Basilashvili in the next round.
