Herbert beats Berdych to reach Montpellier final

At the inaugural Cordoba Open, wildcard Juan Ignacio Londero clinched his first ATP Tour title in an all-Argentine final.

A former world no. 5 and one of the finest indoor players on the Tour in the last ten years, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has been through all kind of stuff in the last 12 months, suffering a massive knee injury here in Montpellier last February and staying away from the court for seven months.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga won the Montpellier Open title on Sunday with a 6-4 6-2 win over fellow Frenchman Pierre-Hugues Herbert. Serving for one of the most important titles in a career, Tsonga blasted a service victor for a hold at love at 5-2, lifting the trophy and making the best possible comeback after a rough year he has had.

Guido Pella survived a three-set battle against Uruguay's Pablo Cuevas, 6-1, 3-6, 6-3, to win in front of his home crowd and advance to the final in Argentina.

Pella took the first set in just 27 minutes, but he was broken in his first service game of the second set. In the third, he got an early break and eventually closed it out on his second match point.

Russia's Daniil Medvedev claimed his fourth ATP Tour title with a straight-sets victory against Hungary's Marton Fucsovics in the final of the Sofia Open.

In a tight opening set, Tsonga earned the only two break points at 4-4.
