03-11-2016 updated

Top Czech men’s tennis player Tomáš Berdych faces Frenchman Gilles Simon for a place in the Paris Masters quarterfinals and a chance to keep his hopes alive of a place in the end of season ATP Masters tournament. Berdych this week dropped out of the world top 10 for the first time in more than six years following recent injury and poor form. He has played Simon, who once climbed to number six in the world, 12 times and lost seven of the confrontations.
