Tennis - Janko Tipsarevic's dreams of winning a Masters Series title came to a halt on Tuesday evening as the seventh seeded Serb was knocked out by 1th seeded Gilles Simon in three sets in the fourth round of the ATP Sony Open Tennis in Miami.

The Serb won the first set 7-5 but was unable to penetrate the backboard game of Simon who went on to win the next two sets 6-2, 6-2.  The match lated almost two and a half hours and the final game of the match lasted a whole 15 minutes before Simon was able to close it out.

The win continues Simon's dominance over the Serb in career matches. This was his seventh win over Tipsarevic in nine career meetings. Simon commented, "I could have won the first set, but unfortunately Janko played some great tennis when I was up 5-3. It was very difficult out there, so I’m very happy with my reaction. We had a very tough game to finish the match. It was a very long game. It would have been worse if I was serving at 5-4, so it helped to have more space. He had nothing to lose and I had the wind at my back. I knew I couldn’t be shaky.”

Simon is one of two French players in the last eight here in Miami with the other being eighth seeded Richard Gasquet.

The talented Gasquet defeated the 10th-seeded Nicolas Almagro 6-7(3), 7-5, 7-6(3) in one of the best matches of the tournament so far between two of the most underrated players on the tour. The match lasted more than two and a half hours.

This is the first time that Gasquet has reached the last eight in Miami.  Gasquet is also seeking to win his first career Masters series title this week.
