The 32-year-old from Liège beat the 18-year-old Frenchman Arthur Fils (ATP 124) in the quarterfinals in three sets. He lost the first set 1-6, won the second 6-3 and won the third after a tiebreak (8/6). The match lasted two hours and twenty minutes. The two faced each other for the first time.

In the semifinals, Goffin will face the American top seed Tommy Paul (ATP 17) or the Austrian Jurij Rodionov (ATP 119).

For David Goffin, the Aix-en-Provence tournament is his second Challenger this season. At the end of January he won the BMW Open in Louvain-la-Neuve (145,000 euros) in his own country. Belgium’s number 1 in 2023 had little success at ATP tournaments. A quarter final at the beginning of this year in Auckland, New Zealand, is his best result.
