Berdych triumphs over Ferrer in final round-robin match

Czech tennis player Tomáš Berdych has booked a spot in the semi-finals of the prestigious ATP World Finals after beating Spanish opponent David Ferrer in London on Friday evening. The Spaniard took control of the match by winning the first set, but was then edged by the world No. 7 in the second. Berdych continued his momentum in the final set, leading 5:0 before Ferrer picked up a lone game. The final score was 3:6, 7:5, 6:1. It is the first time that Tomáš Berdych, a Wimbledon finalist, has qualified for the semis in the season-ending tournament; he will now face Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France. His win over Ferrer in the round-robin stage knocked world No. 1 Novak Djokovic - who had a phenomenal season this year - out of the tournament.
