Top seed Felix Auger-Aliassime withdrew prior to his quarterfinal match in Lyon, France, giving Frenchman Arthur Fils the win in a walkover.

Auger-Aliassime told the crowd he sustained a right shoulder injury and could not compete with the pain. Fils will match up against eighth-seeded Brandon Nakashima in the semifinals. Nakashima defeated No. 3 seed and fellow American Tommy Paul 6-3, 7-6 (4).

Cameron Norrie of Great Britain will play Francisco Cerundolo of Argentina in the other semi.

The second-seeded Norrie defeated No. 6 Sebastian Baez of Argentina 6-2, 2-6, 6-1 while No. 4 Cerundolo ousted Brit Jack Draper 4-6, 6-4, 6-3.
