Non competition clause

An employer signs a contract that includes a non competition clause that states that the employees can't set up own business (same the one working in currently) for 10 years, in the same town after the termination of the contract. Once the employee terminates the contract, he decides to set up same business as that of the company he terminated it with. The ex-employer decides to take this case to court. Who will the court favour?
