Top-seeded Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga advanced to the Stockholm Open final on Saturday after Marcos Baghdatis retired with an injury in the deciding set of their semifinal. Baghdatis withdrew after taking a medical timeout with Tsonga leading 6-4, 4-6, 5-2. Baghdatis appeared to pull a muscle at 4-2 in the decider, on a break point on Tsonga's serve. It was Tsonga's fourth win over Baghdatis in as many meetings. In the final, the No. 7-ranked Tsonga will play the winner of the other semi between Tomas Berdych and Nicolas Almagro.
