Richard Gasquet ends Bernard Tomic revival to set-up all-French Libema final
Richard Gasquet and Jeremy Chardy will contest an all-French final at the Libema Open.
Second-seed Gasquet ended Bernard Tomic’s recent rival, though he was made to work for his 6-4 6-7 6-2 win over the Australian.
Tomic, who beat Gasquet at Wimbledon in 2013, was playing his first ATP semi-final in two years, had to qualify for the tournament.
He made a real fist of it too as the pair shared the opening two tightly-contested sets, but he came up just short.
Chardy, meanwhile, won a relatively straight-forward contest against Australian Matthew Ebdon 6-4 7-5.
It’s Chardy’s first final since the 2009 Mercedes Cup, losing seven semi-finals in the intervening years.
