    Monfils, Montanes into the Nice finals Resurgent Frenchman Gael Monfils and Albert Montanes of Spain earned spots in Saturday's final at the Open de Nice Cote d'Azur.

    Gael Monfils (WC) def. Pablo Andujar 7-5, 6-4

    Friday's win over Pablo Andujar sets Gael Monfils up for the opportunity to win his first title since Stockholm 2011. The Frenchman has had an ongoing battle with knee injuries and is only just now finding his rhythm after a disappointing start to the season.

    It wasn't a fantastic day on serve for either player, with Monfils serving at 53 percent for the match, and Andujar facing 9 break points in two sets.

    But it was Monfils, buoyed by the crowd, that came up with the goods at the important moments of the match. In fact, it was good news all the way around for Monfils, who played well to get the straight set win.

    Andujar had the early lead in the second set, but Monfils fought to get the break back for 4-3 and snagged another break for 5-4.

    Albert Montanes def. Edouard Roger-Vasselin 6-4, 4-6, 6-0

    France's Edouard Roger-Vasselin had an almost absurd number of break point chances against Albert Montanes, with the Frenchman missing 15 of 16 chances to gain the advantage. The only break for Roger-Vasselin came in the middle frame, but the success was short-lived.

    Montanes ended up running the third set, with three breaks of the Frenchman's serve.
