Eight-seeded Frysteberg and Matkowski won 4-6, 6-4, 6-10 on Saturday and will now meet third seeds Max Mirnyi of Belarus and Canadian Daniel Nestor, who beat World No 1 pair Bryan twins, Bob and Mike, in straight sets, 7-6 (6), 6-4 in the other semifinal.

It's Tsonga vs Fed
Defending champion Roger Federer will take on France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the singles final, looking to win the title for a record sixth time.

The showpiece, season-ending match at London's O2 Arena will be Federer's 100th final. Tsonga booked his place by downing Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic 6-3, 7-5 to set up a rematch against Federer, who beat the Frenchman 6-2, 2-6, 6-4 last Sunday in the opening round-robin match of the event.

Federer, can become the recordholder in terms of World Tour Finals should he win his sixth in last night's late game.
