The Frenchman Ugo Humbert, 70th player in the world, has qualified for the semi-finals of the ATP tournament in Antwerp where he will face the British Andy Murray, former world N.1, Saturday.
Humbert, surprise shotgun of Belgian David Goffin (14th) in 8th, confirmed his prestigious success by defeating Argentina's Guido Pelo (20th) 5-7, 6-4, 6-4 in quarters on Friday.
The 21-year-old Frenchman showed great maturity when serving for the match. After an ace allowing him to lead 40-15, he committed a double fault but pulled himself together in the wake to conclude.
