Giles Simon beats Jimmy Wang in four sets to book a place in third round of the US Open, where he will meet American veteran Mardy Fish.

Giles Simon has booked a third-round clash with Mardy Fish at the US Open with a four-set win over Jimmy Wang.

The Frenchman made a bright start and took the opening set 6-4, but Wang was not ready to roll over and made the match all square in the second set by the same scoreline.

Simon kept the 6-4 theme going to secure two very tight sets under constant pressure to earn a hard-fought victory.

The 16th seed will now face home crowd favourite Fish in the last 32 after he overcame Nikolay Davydenko in a five-set thriller earlier on Thursday.
