Montpellier - Third-seeded Richard Gasquet beat veteran Jarkko Nieminen of Finland 6-3, 3-6, 6-2 on Saturday to set up an all-French Open Sud de France final against eighth-seeded Benoit Paire, who overcame countryman Michael Llodra 4-6, 6-3, 6-1.

Gasquet has been in good form this year with a victory at Doha and will try for his ninth career title against Paire, who is aiming for his first.

Gasquet had eight aces and broke Nieminen's serve five times overall.

Paire, who saved a match point in his second-round win against Steve Darcis earlier this week, had 17 aces to Llodra's eight as he fought back to reach his second career final. He lost his previous one on outdoor clay at Belgrade last year.

Results from sixth day of the ATP Sud de France Open on Saturday (x denotes seeded player):

Semi-finals


Richard Gasquet (FRA x3) bt Jarkko Nieminen (FIN) 6-3, 3-6, 6-2
