Jo-Wilfried Tsonga’s ATP World Tour Finals hopes were dealt a blow on Thursday, as he was ousted from the Valencia Open 500 in the second round by Sam Querrey. Querrey, ranked outside of the top hundred, clinched a vital first set tie-breaker before going on to win the match 7-6(5), 6-2 in just under an hour and twenty minutes.

Tsonga could have leapfrogged Tomas Berdych into the No. 6 spot in the South African Airways 2011 ATP Year-To-Date Rankings this week, but this defeat leaves him in seventh place. Had he not been punished by Querrey’s massive serve on Thursday, he could have been within touching distance of qualification for London.

Tsonga will next be in action at the Paris Masters, an event that he won in 2008. Playing in front of a home crowd, the Frenchman will be aiming to pick up the rankings points that will guarantee him a place at the end-of-season event. He’d be very unfortunate to miss out, given current standings. Even so, there are still a lot of players that could catch him with a strong showing in Paris.
