Second seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga continued his quest for a third ATP World Tour title of the season with a 6-0, 6-4 quarter-final victory over #NextGenATP Karen Khachanov in 64 minutes at the Open Parc Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Lyon. The Frenchman lost just six points on serve to improve to a 20-5 match record in 2017.
Tsonga, a winner of two indoor trophies at Rotterdam and Marseille this year, will now face Nikoloz Basilashvili, who is one victory away from reaching his third ATP World Tour final after the Georgian knocked out Argentinean qualifier Nicolas Kicker 6-3, 6-1 in 65 minutes. Basilashvili, with a 16-10 match record on the season, finished runner-up to Ryan Harrison in the Memphis final in February.
Top seed Milos Raonic, competing for the fourth straight week on the ATP World Tour, moved into his fourth semi-final (or better) this year after he defeated qualifier Gastao Elias 6-4, 6-3 in one hour and 33 minutes. Raonic has won eight of his past 11 clay-court matches, including a runner-up finish in Istanbul (l. to Cilic).
“I hope to keep playing better and better,” said Raonic. “The main objective is to win and to be efficient on court, which I was today.
Raonic will next play a wild card entry: third seed Tomas Berdych or fifth seed Gilles Simon in Friday’s semi-finals. The Canadian is looking to capture his first trophy since Brisbane 2016.
