Paris: Richard Gasquet and Stanislas Wawrinka grabbed the last two remaining spots for the season-ending ATP World Tour Finals after Milos Raonic lost to Tomas Berdych 7-6 (13), 6-4 Thursday in the third round of the Paris Masters.
Raonic needed at least a runner-up finish in Paris to have a chance to qualify for the London tournament next week, which features the top eight players. This will be Wawrinka's first appearance while Gasquet also qualified in 2007.
"It was more difficult for me to qualify this time than six years ago," Gasquet said. "It was tough for me to come back, and today I believe the tennis is at a very high level. . I played a lot better than six years ago."
