Fernando Verdasco has kept his ATP World Tour Finals dream alive with a three set victory over Arnaud Clement

Fernando Verdasco fought back from a set down to beat Arnaud Clement today (3-6, 6-3, 6-0). Clement started strongly and appeared to be in good shape to provide his second upset of the week,but couldn’t finish the job having gotten into a commanding position. Verdasco’s determination to qualify for the ATP Tour World Finals was evident, and the Spaniard edged even closer to a berth in the end-of-season event.

Things looked bad for the Spaniard when he was broken in the second set, but he recovered superbly and put Clement on the back foot for the rest of the match. The World number nine appeared to be struggling with the fast court here, but managed to come to terms with his surroundings just in time. The manner in which he took ten straight games at the end of the match will serve as a warning signal to his future opponents, and if he continues to produce this kind of tennis he’ll be a serious contender for the title this week.

Verdasco now has a 43-21 match record for the season, though he’s struggled since the U.S Open, winning only one other match prior to this week. He’ll now face either Gael Monfils or Benjamin Becker in round three. Becker is here as a wildcard, whilst Monfils, the only seeded Frenchman in the competition, could be a real threat.
