Battle For The Barclays ATP World Tour Finals
There are three spots remaining for the season-ending event in London with three weeks left to duke it out. Tsonga, ranked No. 8, is the highest placed contender in action this week.
With No. 6 ranked Tomas Berdych (2,940 points) and No. 7 Mardy Fish (2,875 points) not competing this week, Tsonga can add 100 points if he wins the title, which would move him ahead of Fish. Juan Martin del Potro (13th with 2,050 points) is also playing in Vienna.
London hopefuls Janko Tipsarevic (No. 10 with 2,245 points), Gilles Simon (No. 11 with 2,155 points) and Alexandr Dolgopolov (No. 15 with 1,835 points) are hoping to stake their Finals claim in St. Petersburg.
