In the other semi-final, Russian Nikolay Davydenko overcame top seed David Ferrer of Spain surprisingly easily 6-2 6-3.
After the former world no.3 Davydenko broke Ferrer twice to take the first set, he never looked back. He will be going into the final with a 2-3 head to head record against Gasquet.
