The phenomenal run of Jerzy Janowicz, a qualifier from Poland, has seen him take out Andy Murray and Janko Tipsarevic. Now he has taken out Gilles Simon in the semi finals in straight sets, beating him 6-4, 7-6.
Now the in form Pole faces Spaniard David Ferrer in the Paris finals. Regardless of the outcome it will be the first Masters 1000 title for the winner.
The always consistent David Ferrer has had one of his best seasons ever and despite his relentless consistency he has always been stopped from winning a major title by one of the big four – Federer, Nadal, Djokovic or Murray. Now, with no member of the top four in the tournament, Ferrer stands with his greatest chance.
“I feel good. I am very happy because I am in the final. Tomorrow, it’s going to be a very difficult match because my opponent, he’s playing very, very good. But I will try to do my best for to beat him.
Of course this year was the best of my career. I never won six titles in one year. If I win tomorrow, it’s going to be seven. I’m very happy for that. I won a lot of matches.”
Jerzy was once again delighted with the outcome. “I cannot believe this actually. How is this possible? I was always a confident guy, but I was dreaming about top 100. I broke top 100 this year. But I could never expect something like this. I came here to play qualifications, and suddenly I’m in the final.”
