Monfils also reached the quarterfinals last week in Metz, his first tournament since May after being sidelined by a right knee injury.
Also, third-seeded Milos Raonic of Canada beat Ivo Karlovic of Croatia 7-6 (3), 6-4 in the first matchup of big servers. Raonic had 14 aces to nine for Karlovic, and converted his only break point chance.
"I was a bit hesitant in the first set, and tried to figured out (the indoor court) in the second," said Raonic, who will face Jarkko Nieminen of Finland.
