ATP Montpellier Jo Wilfried Tsonga and Pierre Hugues Herbert reach final

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.
