World number eight Juan Martin del Potro has strengthened his chances of qualifying for the ATP World Tour Finals in London after winning the Erste Bank Open 2012 title on Sunday. The Argentine, a finalist last year, beat qualifier Grega Zemlja 7-5, 6-3.
“I’m so happy. It’s important to have a good end of the year,” Del Potro said.
“I’m looking forward to keep improving, keep playing well at the same level as I had here. I also look forward to London. I’m looking better to qualify there. We have two big tournaments coming next week. They have the chance to get points also, so it will be very interesting to see how we are going,” he added.
Del Potro is currently seventh in the standings. He won €87,870 and 250 ATP Ranking points.
