World No. 6 Tomas Berdych of Czech Republic earned a came from behind victory over Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga with a 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 scoreline in two hours and 29 minutes and claimed the 2012 If Stockholm Open title on Sunday.
By winning this title, Berdych also bolstered his chances to qualify for the ATP World Tour Finals for the third straight year.
“London is always a goal every season," said Berdych on his bid to qualify for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals. "You have to play well the whole year to qualify. It will be special for me, if I make it for the third year in a row. I then hope to do well for Czech Republic in the Davis Cup final at home."
He further added that "It feels pretty good to have won a second title this season. When I was 2-4 down in the second set, I remained positive and focused on my game. Against Jo you have to stay positive until the last point. I am happy that I was able to turnaround the match and that’s what makes this title special."
On the other hand, Tsonga lamented, "I feel bad, because it was a good final and a close score. I think we played a great match and had many opportunities, but he played well. I tried to play my best tennis today. Of course, I am trying to qualify for London, I am not there yet and I need to earn more points."
