The fifth-seeded Berdych is the sixth player to secure his place in the November 9-16 elite eight-man event in London.

Paris: Czech Tomas Berdych booked his place in the ATP World Tour Finals for the fifth time in a row when he advanced into the semi-finals of the Paris Masters with a 6-7(4) 6-4 6-4 victory over South African Kevin Anderson on Friday.

The fifth-seeded Berdych, who won on his Bercy debut in 2005, is the sixth player to secure his place in the November 9-16 elite eight-man event in London.

After losing the opening set tiebreak, Berdych found his range on serve to level and recovered from a break down in the third set before breaking the 14th seeded Anderson's serve decisively in the ninth game.

Berdych will next face either Swiss great Roger Federer, seeded second, or Canadian Milos Raonic, the seventh seed.

In the other half of the draw world number one Novak Djokovic faces Andy Murray while Kei Nishikori is up against Spain's David Ferrer.
