will seek his first ATP title in Montpellier since his victory in Doha at the beginning of 2019. The tennis player from Castellón, number 13 in the world, will face Belgian
, 15th in the ranking,
after beating German
by 7-6 and 6-1.
The Spanish, first seeded, continues intractable in France.
He has not yet lost a set in Montpellier and despite a first set in which his rival showed harsh opposition to the service, he won again comfortably to certify his ticket to the last round.
In front will be David Goffin, who beat Belarusian
in three sets (6-4, 6-4 and 2-6).
In the balance of the matches played between Bautista and Goffin, the Belgian is the winner (3-2), who has won the last three duels, the most recent on the land of Conde de Godó in 2018.
It will be a high-karat final.
Both came to the tournament in the south of France under the banner of favorites, their distance in the ranking is minimal, and the level they have shown in the tournament has been outstanding.
Roberto, visibly recovered from the muscular problems that weighed him down at the Australian Open, will go out in search of his tenth title, while for David, if he is proclaimed winner, it will be fifth.
