Former world No. 14 Karlovic, now ranked 130th, is now one match away from his first ATP final since 2010 after beating 116th-rated Roger-Vasselin 7-6(4), 6-3.
Karlovic racked up 23 aces against the Frenchman, who had been bidding to reach a first career singles final.
The Croatian now plays either fourth seed Thomaz Bellucci of Brazil or Poland's power hitter Jerzy Janowicz.
