Tomas Berdych has an opportunity to usurp Marin Cilic at No. 6 in the Emirates ATP Race To London.

Tomas Berdych will overtake Marin Cilic at No. 6 in the Emirates ATP Race To London if he beats Gilles Simon on Friday for a place in the Shanghai Rolex Masters semi-finals.

Berdych, the sixth seed this week, added 90 Emirates ATP Rankings points with a 6-3, 6-4 victory over Ivo Karlovic, who hit 19 aces, in the 65-minute third-round victory Thursday.

Berdych is now 45 points behind Cilic in the battle to qualify for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals, to be held at The O2 in London from 9-16 November. Cilic lost in the Shanghai first round (l. to Karlovic).

Simon, who advanced to last week’s Rakuten Japan Open Tennis Championships semi-finals (l. to Raonic), rolled past qualifier Malek Jaziri 6-2, 6-3 in 74 minutes.
