PARIS – The Latest from the French Open:
No surprise here: Less than six months into the year, Novak Djokovic has already qualified for the ATP World Tour Finals.
A French Open quarterfinal victory over nine-time champion Rafael Nadal assured the No. 1-ranked Djokovic of earning the first berth in the men's season-ending tournament, held in November in London.
The Serb will have a chance to become the first player to win the title at the ATP finals four years in a row.
Top-seeded pair Bob and Mike Bryan reached the French Open doubles final for the sixth time with a 6-3, 6-3 win over Italian duo Simone Bolelli and Fabio Fognini.
The twin brothers converted four of their five break points to edge the Australian Open champions on Court Philippe Chatrier in 59 minutes.
The 37-year-old Bryans extended their record to 60-14 at Roland Garros, where they claimed the first of their 16 Grand Slam titles 12 years ago. They won again in Paris in 2013.
They will play either No. 3 pair Ivan Dodig and Marcelo Melo or No. 5 seeds Jean-Julien Rojer and Horia Tecau in the final.
Mike Bryan has another match scheduled on center court later Thursday, teaming up with Bethanie Mattek-Sands in the mixed doubles final.
