Stockholm Open: Grigor Dimitrov to face Juan Martin del Potro in final

Juan Martin del Potro boosted his hopes of qualifying for the ATP Finals and delayed confirmation of Grigor Dimitrov's likely qualification by beating the Bulgarian in straight sets to retain the Stockholm Open title.

In Antwerp, world number 17 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga beat 26th-ranked Argentine Diego Schwartzman in the final of the European Open.

Juan Martin del Potro is set to move into the fourteenth position in the 2017 Race to London. But del Potro broke right back and the two held serve into the tiebreaker. And hopefully I can come next year as well. "I played a good match today".

Dimitrov's effort virtually cements his first appearance in the ATP Finals.

"I would love to defend my title but Grigor is playing so good".

"I couldn't have lost to a better gentleman on and off the court", Dimitrov said on court afterwards.

After saving two match points, Fognini prevailed 6-7 (7-3) 7-6 (7-2) 7-5 in a match that lasted nearly three hours.

Dimitrov achieved a break in both sets and it was quite enough against the practitioner of the "service-volley" tactic Zverev.

Grigor could have finished the game even faster but did not take advantage of 4 match balls.
