The game provided the Argentinian third seed with his 28th clay-court win of the season, more than any other player on the ATP Tour.
Monaco would have faced another Argentinian in the semis had Maximo Gonzalez not slipped to a 6-2 6-2 defeat at the hands of Simon Greul.
The German’s victory secured his first tour semi.
Fifth seed Albert Montanes of Spain strolled into the semi-finals with a 6-1 6-1 demolition of Italy’s Fabio Fognini.
He will next take on compatriot Santiago Ventura, who beat another Spaniard, Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo, 6-2 6-3 on Friday.
