Stockholm:

Top-seeded 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 the Frenchman's fourth win over Baghdatis in as many meetings.

In the final, the No. 7-ranked Tsonga will play the winner of the other semifinal between Tomas Berdych and Nicolas Almagro.
