I discovered Simon when I had to do some research for a contest on another site. The contest was to pick a player (or two if you wanted two chances to win) ranked between 101 -200 in the 2004 year-end rankings and whoever has the player that goes up the most over 2005 wins. Of course, players like Marcos Baghdatis were taken very fast. So, I did some research on the ATP site and came up with Gilles Simon and Tobias Summerer (GER). Simon moved up about 310 spots in the rankings over 2004 and Summerer moved up 372 spots. So far, Simon is up around 30 spots this year and Summerer is up 18 or so. Not bad. But, Baghdatis is up over 60 positions. He appears to be the real deal.
