Seventh seed Tomas Berdych recorded a convincing win over crowd favourite Gilles Simon in the final match on Thursday, 6-4, 6-3. Berdych broke his opponent three times and held the lead throughout the contest to prevail in 68 minutes.


Berdych is also still in contention to qualify for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals. A runner-up showing in Paris will automatically give him the final spot up for grabs, or he could head to London if he reaches the semi-finals and Tsonga does not win the title. 


The Czech player will now square off against second seed Andy Murray, a winner earlier in the day over No. 13 seed Lucas Pouille. Berdych trails their FedEx ATP Head2Head series 5-9. Murray has won their past five matches, including two victories this year in Madrid and Wimbledon.
