Goffin, who knocked off then world No. 1 Rafael Nadal at last month's ATP Cup, reached the Montpellier semifinals in 2018 bowing to Frenchman Richard Gasquet.

Vasek Pospisil stands between the Belgian baseliner and his first Montpellier final.

The Canadian Davis Cup standout held a 6-1, 1-0 lead over Gasquet when the three-time champion retired after 32 minutes due to injury.

Two-time Montpellier champion Gael Monfils thrilled home fans charging into his fifth semifinal in seven appearances at the Open Sud de France with a 6-3, 6-4 sweep of Norbert Gombos

The top-seeded Monfils moved fluidly and saved five of six break points in a 72-minute victory.

The French wild card, who took the title in 2010 and 2014, will play Filip Krajinovic in Saturday's semifinals.

The seventh-seeded Krajinovic was a 6-2, 7-5 victor over 91st-ranked Frenchman Gregoire Barrere.
