Despite being unwell and looking out of sorts, Auger-Aliassime broke Bedene at 5-4 to take the first set and looked firmly in control in the second before the Slovenian picked up his game to force a tiebreak with well executed points designed to tire out the struggling Montrealer.

However, the visibly exhausted Auger-Aliassime managed to save a set point before winning the tiebreak and advancing to only his third career ATP 500 semifinal.

In Saturday’s semifinal, Auger-Aliassime, ranked No. 21 in the world, will face 30th ranked Pablo Carreno Busta of Spain. Carreno Busta ousted No. 79 ranked Italian Jannik Sinner 7-5, 3-6, 7-6 (6) on Friday.

French third seed and defending champion Gael Monfils is in action against Briton Dan Evans, while Serbia’s Filip Krajinović takes on world No. 7 Andrey Rublev of Russia later on Friday in the other quarter-finals.
