Richard Gasquet continued his fantastic form at the Open Sud de France in Montpellier, defeating Pierre Hugues Herbert, 7-6(3), 5-7, 6-3. The three-time champion has reached five straight finals at the event. Gasquet, who was born in nearby Beziers, France, won 15 of 16 first-serve points and did not face a break point in the third set to squeak by Herbert in their first career meeting.

The fifth-seeded Frenchman will move on to face No.4-seeded Damir Dzuhmhur in the quarterfinals. Dzumhur defeated Belgium’s Ruben Bemelmans, 7-5, 6-4.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga set up a popcorn quarterfinal with Andrey Rublev with a 7-6(3), 6-7(3), 6-7(4) victory over Nicolas Mahut. Tsonga cracked 17 aces and saved all three break points he faced to defeat the World No.105.


No.2-seeded Lucas Pouille and Russia’s Karen Khachanov were also winners in straight sets on Thursday.
