Nishikori qualifies for ATP World Tour Finals
PARIS (Reuters) - Japan's Kei Nishikori became the first Asian-born singles player to qualify for the ATP World Tour Finals when he beat Spain's David Ferrer 3-6 7-6 (5) 6-4 in the quarter-finals of the Paris Masters on Friday.
The sixth seed joins Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Stan Wawrinka, Marin Cilic, Tomas Berdych, Milos Raonic and Andy Murray as the line-up for the Nov. 9-16 season-ending tournament in London is now complete.
Canadian Raonic, who beat Federer earlier on Friday at Bercy, qualifies courtesy of fouth seed Ferrer's defeat.
