Gasquet beats Simon to win Thailand Open
The 14th-ranked Gasquet routed the 2009 champion in 68 minutes for his seventh career victory.
Playing with a right knee injury, Simon was up an early break in each set, but Gasquet dominated the rest of the match with more accurate groundstrokes.
Trailing 5-1, Simon saved two match points, but Gasquet hit a backhand crosscourt winner to wrap up the victory.
