Tennis-Simon downs Berdych to reach Paris last four
PARIS Nov 2 (Reuters) - Frenchman Gilles Simon booked his place in the Paris Masters semi-finals with a comprehensive 6-4 6-4 win over Czech fifth seed Tomas Berdych on Friday.
The unseeded Simon, who reached the quarter-finals after Japanese Kei Nishikori withdrew with an ankle injury, had too much pace for Berdych in front of his home crowd.
Simon was 4-1 down in the second set but fought back to win the five remaining games, wrapping up the contest with an ace on his second match point.
