The Bulgarian moved into fifth in the qualification places for the season finale in London with a 6-3 7-6 (7-2) victory over sixth seed Fabio Fognini.

In the other half of the draw, last year's victor Juan Martin del Potro helped his chances of defending his crown as he saw off Japan's Yuichi Sugita 6-2, 7-6 (6) to move into the semifinals.

It wasn't a tough decision for him not to take the offer as he felt he can't he get into the shoes of the superstar. Apart from Rajnikanth, 2.0 also features Akshay Kumar , who will be seen playing the main antagonist in the movie.

It took almost an hour for Verdasco to move ahead but it only served to fire up Del Potro and soon he was level, a break early in the second enough for the Argentine.

Today, both players had 5 break points and it was Dimitrov who scored 3 breaks to prevail in straight sets, losing serve twice.

Tsonga converted all four break points against Rubens Bemelmans in Antwerp and will get the chance to add to the three titles he has already won in 2017. Bulgarian opened the second set on a high note, breaking his rival in the opening game after a poor drop shot from Fognini, but the Italian pulled the break back in game 4 thanks to a backhand error from his rival, leveling the score at 2-2.

Tsonga is also set to lead France in next month's Davis Cup final against Belgium in Lille.
