Bernard Tomic has been knocked out of the Thailand Open in straight sets by Frenchman Richard Gasquet.

Gasquet won 7-6 (7-5), 6-4 in 89 minutes to reach the semi-final where he will play top-seed Janko Tipsarevic who beat Fernando Verdasco by the exact same score.

In a game dominated by serve, Tomic forged three break opportunities but did not convert any, while Gasquet was successful in one of his two opportunities to break.

In the other half of the draw, Gilles Simon defeated Gael Monfils 6-4, 6-1, while Jarkko Nieminen downed Milos Raonic 6-3, 7-6 (7-3).
