Davis Cup 2015 QF: Gilles Simon defeats James Ward
Less than a week after Wimbledon, the Queen’s Club hosts the Davis Cup quarterfinal between Great Britain and France. The winner will face Kazakhstan or Australia in the semifinals in September. With 3 top 20 in their team and a doubles specialist, France is the huge favorite, but in Davis Cup you never know what might happen.
Last March, James Ward pulled off the biggest win of his career, beating John Isner in a marathon 6-7 5-7 6-3 7-6 15-13 match in the Davis Cup first round tie against USA. But this time, he didn’t cause recent Wimbledon quarterfinalist Gilles Simon too many problems. Simon wins in straight sets 6-4 6-4 6-1 in under two hours, and that’s 1-0 for France.
