New coach journey for Simon

Gilles SIMON
ATP Tennis

Gilles Simon has started working with a new coach, German Jan de Witt, who replaced Frenchman Thierry Tulasne.

De Witt previously worked with Finland’s Jarkko Nieminen before moving on to work with 28-year-old Simon, who reached world no6 in 2009 but is now a top 20 player.

Eastbourne-bound Simon, who reached three semi-finals – Rotterdam, Marseille and Bucharest – this year, will be expecting to gradually move closer to a return to the top 10.

De Witt has a tough task at 2013 Roland Garros, as the French ace has a win-loss ratio of 8-7 in Singles at the French Open and yet to impress in his home slam.
