Kyle Edmund to face Richard Gasquet in Antwerp semi-final after walkover
Kyle Edmund is into his fourth semi-final of the year on the back of Ilya Ivashka’s withdrawal from their European Open quarter-final.
The British No 1 was handed a walkover after Ivashka picked up a thigh injury ahead of their quarter-final clash .
Edmund is still looking for his first ATP Tour singles trophy, but he finished runner-up at the Grand Prix Hasan II in April and also reached the Australian Open and China Open semi-finals.
He will face Richard Gasquet for a place in the final after the fourth-seeded Frenchman won his marathon encounter against Jan-Lennard Struff.
Gasquet needed two hours and 19 minutes to beat the German 6-4, 6-7 (4-7), 7-6 (11-9).
Second seed Diego Schwartzman and Gael Monfils will contest the other semi-final.
Argentine Schwartzman beat Gilles Simon 6-4, 6-3 while Frenchman Monfils secured a 7-5, 6-4 win over Vasek Pospisil.
