Gasquet books place in final

Richard Gasquet is through to the final of the Open Sud de France following his win over Dustin Brown on Saturday.

The top seed battled back from a set down to defeat the German 1-6, 6-4, 6-3 on the hard courts of Montpellier.

Brown looked on course for an upset after three success breaks of serve saw him close out the opening set in just 25 minutes.

Gasquet was then 3-0 down, but rallied to break back twice, after which he never looked back.

The Frenchman, who is the defending champion, will now play Paul-Henri Mathieu in the semi-finals.

Mathieu battled past teenager Alexander Zverez 7-6(11), 7-5 to reach the final.
