A pair of top-ranked Frenchmen will lead an impressive draw at the 2013 ATP Open de Moselle, one of 40 ATP 250 series tournaments that will take place on the indoor hard courts in Metz, France, this September.
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who withdrew from Wimbledon and missed the U.S. Open because of a knee injury, and Gilles Simon, who has returned from a two-month bout with whooping cough, are the top two seeds at this week's tournament—and for obvious reason.
Tsonga is the two-time defending champion at this event, while Simon won it as recently as 2010.
2012 runner-up Andreas Seppi of Italy is another top contender in Metz. He'll be seeded third, which means he could potentially match up with Simon in the semifinals this weekend. At the top of the draw, fourth-seeded German Philipp Kohlschreiber, who was a finalist at this event back in 2009, could potentially meet up with Tsonga in the semifinals in what would be another intriguing weekend showdown.
With the action already underway, we'll get you caught up on the latest scores and results from France.
