Tsonga, Simon reach Open de Moselle final
METZ, France (AP) - Top-seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga will aim for his third straight Open de Moselle title when he plays Gilles Simon in an all-French final on Sunday.
Tsonga rallied past eighth-seeded Florian Mayer of Germany 4-6, 6-2, 6-3 in the semifinals Saturday. The second-seeded Simon had defeated French countryman Nicolas Mahut 6-3, 7-6 (2) to stay on course for his first title of the year.
Tsonga's playing in his first tournament since a knee injury forced him to drop out of the second-round match at Wimbledon. It's his first final since winning the Open 13 in Marseille in February for his 10th career title.
