Former Champions Simon, Andujar To Meet In Marrakech Semi-finals

Two former champions — Gilles Simon (2008) and Pablo Andujar (2011-12, 2018) — will meet on Saturday for a place in the Grand Prix Hassan II final.

Fourth seed Simon battled past Taro Daniel, saving 12 of 15 break points, in a 6-4, 7-5 victory over two hours and 34 minutes on Friday for a place in the semi-finals against Andujar, who advanced without playing when his Czech opponent Jiri Vesely withdrew due to a right toe injury.

“I played aggressively today and was able to bother him,” said Paire. “I made the right choices and I’m really happy with my match today.”
