Belgian qualifier Kimmer Coppejans continued his fine run of form this week by reaching the semi-finals of the €45,730 Internationeaux de Toulouse, an ATP Challenger Tour 80 clay-court tournament being held at the Stade Toulousain Tennis Club.

The World No. 292, who cracked the Top 100 in 2015, defeated 18-year-old Frenchman Luca van Assche 6-1, 6-3 in Friday’s quarterfinal round. Coppejans converted five of his 11 break-point chances to advance in one hour and 23 minutes.

The five-time Challenger champion will next take on Louis Wessels of Germany, who battled past fifth-seeded Argentine Marco Trungelliti 7-6(4), 2-6, 7-6(4) in three hours and nine minutes, the longest match of the day.
