Czech makes ATP finals again

12:47 pm on 23 October 2012

Tomas Berdych has become the sixth player to qualify for tennis's World Tour Finals in London next month after capturing his eighth career title at the Stockholm Open.

The Czech, who beat the Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 4-6 6-4 6-4 in the final, has reached the year-ending showpiece for the world's top eight men for the third straight year.

Two more spots are up for grabs with two weeks of the regular season remaining, although already-qualified Rafa Nadal almost certainly won't play because of his recurring knee problems.
