The biggest title in career of the 27-year-old Frenchman [18], who needed 2 hours 40 minutes in the final that was played indoors (bad weather). In the opening set Almagro [14] wasted eight break points in three games, then he came back from a break down in the 2nd set (earlier on he led 3:0*), and the 3rd set was decided in the first game, in which Simon converted his fourth opportunity. Simon hadn’t any problems to hold his five service games afterwards.

Simon’s route to his 9th title:
1 Sergiy Stakhovsky 6-2, 6-1
2 Jarkko Nieminen 7-6(4), 3-6, 6-4
Q Gael Monfils 6-4, 3-6, 6-0
S Mikhail Youzhny 3-6, 6-3, 6-1
W Nicolas Almagro 6-4, 4-6, 6-4
