Berdych saves 2 match points on way to Montpellier semis

ATP Montpellier Jo Wilfried Tsonga and Pierre Hugues Herbert reach final

Medvedev was contesting his second ATP Tour final of 2019, having lost to Kei Nishikori at the Brisbane International last month.

Tsonga, a former world number five, is now down at 210 in the rankings after a lengthy battle with a knee injury.

Pella took the first set in just 27 minutes, but he was broken in his first service game of the second set.

Jo-Wilfred Tsonga poses with the title.

The contract will be effective as of July 1 and will expire on June 30, 2023, Juventus said in a statement . The Welshman has agreed to a four-year contract and his salary will raise to 21 million euros per season.

A Berdych double fault at 5-5 in the second set earned Herbert a break and the Frenchman then served it out to claim his first win against the Czech.

Tsonga next plays Radu Albot of Macedonia, who won 6-2, 7-6 (2) against qualifier Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus. But Tsonga read the play on his second break point, guiding a forehand return victor up the line to earn the break.

This was their third meeting and Jo scored as many wins, losing just three games against the younger opponent here in Montpellier two years ago and standing as the dominant figure today as well, losing nine points on serve and scoring three breaks to control the scoreboard all the time. Pella will face Juan Ignacio Londero - appearing in his first ATP final - after his countryman defeated Federico Delbonis 6-1 6-0 in one hour.

Russia's Daniil Medvedev claimed his fourth ATP Tour title with a straight-sets victory against Hungary's Marton Fucsovics in the final of the Sofia Open.
