Lajovic, who will take on either 11-times champion Italian Fabio Fognini in the final, trailed 0-3 in the opening set before going through the gears.

The 10th-seeded Medvedev could not hold the pace as whirlwinds swept across centre court at the Monte Carlo Country Club. Lajovic quickly moved 4-0 up in the second set against a frustrated opponent, who bowed out on the second match point. Fognini trounced Rafael Nadal of Spain 6-4, 6-2 in the othersemi-final.
