"It's a great achievement for me to win three titles here", said Estrella Burgos.
In Saturday's other semifinal, second seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France will take on 19-year-old German Alexander Zverev - one of the rising stars of world tennis. Yet Gasquet, who won the event three times including back to back in 2015 and 2016, was not ready to hand his title over without a fight. He was winning 1-0 when Brown retired with a back injury.
The powerful hitting of Zverev was taking its toll on the four-time champion, but he was able to cope well as the second set was moving along routinely, service games competitive, but no breaks or break points achieved by either player. I had a bad start, he quickly broke me at the beginning of the match. "Both of us played really well from the baseline". He served ten aces to Goffin's two in the final, and converted on five of his seven break points. Gasquet tried to close the gap but couldn't hold off Zverev eventually taking the tiebreak 7-6 (4). The Frenchman later sent a forehand just wide that handed Zverev the break for 5-3.
Dimitrov, playing in his home country Bulgaria, also on indoor hard courts, defeated world number 11 David Goffin 7-5 6-4, a repeat of the Australian Open quarter final, which Dimitrov also won in straight sets.
Montpellier is the second career ATP title for Zverev who is projected to rise inside the ATP top 20 next week.
