Jo-Wilfried Tsonga’s ATP World Tour Final hopes suffer setback
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga's hopes of qualifying for the ATP World Tour Finals suffer a setback after defeat by Robin Haase in Austria
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga’s hopes of qualifying for the season-ending ATP World Tour Finals suffered a setback after the Frenchman was beaten by Robin Haase in the Austrian Open semi-finals.
Tsgona, who missed the US Open due to a knee injury suffered at Wimbledon, lost 7-5 7-6 (7-4) to his 63rd-ranked opponent.
And as the race to qualify for the tournament in London hots up, Richard Gasquet’s run to the Kremlin Cup final will see him replace Tsonga in the top eight, with Milos Raonic and Tommy Haas also in contention to reach the even.
Tsonga will find himself in ninth place behind Roger Federer and Gasquet when the latest standings are released on Monday.
Gasquet takes on Mikhail Kukushkin in the Kremlin Cup showpiece on Sunday.
