Tsonga beats Berdych to reach World Tennis Tournament final

ROTTERDAM, Netherlands – Jo-Wilfried Tsonga celebrated his 400th career win in style by beating fourth-seeded Tomas Berdych 6-3, 6-4 to reach the final of the World Tennis Tournament on Saturday.

The sixth-seeded Frenchman was dominant on serve, hitting 10 aces, winning 88 percent of his points on first serve, and not conceding a single break point against the hard-hitting Czech.

He broke Berdych once in each set and beat him for only the fourth time in 12 matches.

Tsonga’s opponent in the final will be third-seeded David Goffin of Belgium who beat qualifier Pierre-Hugues Herbert of France, a doubles specialist ranked only 109 in singles, 6-1, 6-3 on Saturday.

Tsonga, who is ranked 14, has 12 career titles and lost the final here in Rotterdam six years ago.
