Tennis Open Sud de France David Goffin advances to quarterfinals

Belgian Goffin advanced with a 6-4, 6-2 win from his round of 16 tie with France’s Simon on Court Patrice Dominguez in Montpellier.

Pierre-Hugues Herbert came through a three-setter 7-6 (4), 6-7 (5), 6-4 with fellow countryman Kenny De Schepper, and Nicolas Mahut advanced to round two after Dustin Brown retired with the scores 7-6 (2), 5-2 in favour of Mahut.
