France's Gilles Simon sent Spanish tennis ace David Ferrer crashing to his earliest US Open exit in five years on Sunday with a 6-3, 3-6, 6-1, 6-3 win in New York.


The 26th seeded Simon capitalised on the 52 unforced errors of the fourth seeded Ferrer, who has been a semi-finalist in 2007 and 2012. Ferrer appeared to struggle physically towards the end of their third-round clash, which was just 10 minutes short of three hours.

Simon will next face Croatia's Marin Cilic, who beat South Africa's Kevin Anderson 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4, for a place in the quarterfinals. He admitted that he was delighted to have got the better of Ferrer against whom he had lost five times in six meetings, Sport24 reported.

Simon, one of five Frenchmen to reach the third round, said that Ferrer destroyed him five times before, so, he added that he just tried to stay loose and relaxed and enjoy himself on court. But he said that he is tired because the weather forecast said that it would be cooler but did not feel like it during the match.
