World No. 6 Tomas Berdych ground out a victory over Jo-Wilfried Tsonga to reach the semifinals of the Shanghai Masters on Friday.

The Czech awaits the winner of the quarterfinal clash between second seed Novak Djokovic and German veteran Tommy Haas.
The other semifinal will see either top seed Roger Federer or Croatia’s Marin Cilic face third seed Andy Murray or another Czech, Radek Stepanek.
