In a highly balanced game that did not have any break, Gasquet was more focused on the critical points and managed to win the semi-final and at the same time a to take revenge for his defeat in Doha by Tsitsipas.
The Frenchman, No. 2 of the board, will be called to face in the semifinals the Australian Bernard Tomic who made the big surprise by winning over No 4 of the board, Fernando Verdasco.
