31-year-old Gasquet improves to 24-4 lifetime at Montpellier, located just an hour from his native Beziers, France. The Frenchman broke in the decisive seventh game of the decider, and then broke again to close out the victory in one hour and 48 minutes.

The World No.33 converted three of eight break points on the day to earn his first win over the Belgian.

Gasquet will face No.2-seeded Lucas Pouille in the final. Pouille advanced when Jo-Wilfried Tsonga had to pull the plug due to injury while leading 6-1, 5-5.

Gasquet will bid for his 15th title on Sunday; Pouille will bid for his fifth.

Pouille has won three straight against Gasquet, and three of four overall.
