Daniil Medvedev tops Marton Fucsovics to win the title — ATP Sofia

"It was my biggest and best win in the Fed Cup and to win both rubbers against the Czech Republic means a lot to me because they have such a big history in this competition", Halep said after she had beaten Pliskova. "Today, I served very well, this is my best serving day so far".

The Frenchman will now face Medvedev, who cruised past Martin Klizan 6-4, 6-1.

The 22-year-old Russian made light work of Gael Monfils to reach the Sofia Open final on Saturday, notching a 6-2, 6-4 victory to book a final with Marton Fucsovics of Hungary. Saturday's other semifinal sees Matteo Berrettini - a 4-6, 7-5, 6-4 victor over Fernando Verdasco - take on Marton Fucsovics, who benefitted from 2016 champion Roberto Bautista Agut's withdrawal due to illness.

The Italian outclassed top seed Karen Khachanov and Fernando Verdasco in a sparkling week in the Bulgarian capital but his energy went down in the third set. "I knew I had to fight and I'm glad it went well".

Former champion Tomas Berdych on Friday reached the Open Sud de France semi-finals the hard way, saving two match points in a 7-6 (7/3), 6-7 (5/7), 7-5 win against Filip Krajinovic of Serbia.

This is set to be the first time that Gael Monfils and Daniil Medvedev will be playing each other at an ATP event.

In the second straight all-French final in Montpellier, Tsonga becomes the seventh French victor in the tournament's nine-year history.

At the Open Sud de France in Montpellier, 2012 victor Tomas Berdych fought off two match points to secure a 7-6 (7-3), 6-7 (5-7), 7-5 win over Filip Krajinovic.

The seventh seed overcame the world number 12 Tsitsipas, in straight sets in their quarter-final that was played Friday.

Berdych beat Herbert in their only previous meeting, earlier this year in the quarter-finals of the Doha Open.

Injury-plagued Jo-Wilfried Tsonga claimed the 17th title of his career on Sunday when he defeated French compatriot Pierre-Hugues Herbert 6-4, 6-2 to claim the Montpellier title.
