Tsonga and Tipsarevic secure spots for ATP Finals
PARIS (AP) - Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Serbia’s Janko Tipsarevic secured the last two places for the season-ending ATP World Tour Finals after reaching the quarterfinals of the Paris Masters on Thursday.
They needed to win their third-round matches at the Bercy indoor arena in Paris, regardless of other results. Tsonga beat Nicolas Almagro of Spain, 7-6 (4), 7-6 (3) and Tipsarevic defeated Juan Monaco of Argentina 6-3, 3-6, 6-3.
“It’s really important for me to have qualified. With the big four at the moment, it’s not easy to get rewards in tennis,” Tsonga said. “I have some great memories from last year where I played the final against Roger. It was huge for me, one of the big moments of my career.”
“The World Tour Finals last year was one of my best experiences ever on the tennis court,” Tipsarevic said. “I’m excited to be back there.”
