Gilles Simon v Roger Federer Live
The quarterfinal of the 2015 Wimbledon Championships will feature an intriguing match between the second seed Roger Federer and 12thFrenchman Gilles Simon.
Federer has had an easy path to the quarterfinal and didn’t face any difficulties in reaching here. He has been quite exceptional and in the fourth round, he overcame the Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut in straight sets.
Simon too has played quite well in London and is coming in this match after delivering a major upset in the form of defeating the sixth seed Tomas Berdych with 6-3, 6-3, 6-2.
This is the third time in a row that the world no. 13 has managed to reach the quarterfinal on grass this season. In the Aegon Championships, he was the semifinalist, where he lost to Kevin Anderson. He followed this performance with a decent run in the Aegon Open Nottingham, where he lost in the quarterfinal.
However, he is going up against an opponent, who he hasn’t been able to defeat since 2008. After winning twice in that year, Federer has moved on to win all of their subsequent matches and currently leads the tally with 5-2. They last met in 2015 ATP Shanghai, where the Swiss defeated Simon in the final to lift the trophy.
For this match, Federer is certainly the favorite one. He has the experience and the momentum too, to reach the final two.
