Del Potro, who needs to reach at least the semifinals to qualify for London, eased past Joao Sousa, 6-2, 6-2.

Anderson was knocked off by an inspired Fernando Verdasco, 5-7, 6-4, 7-5, while Tsonga dropped a close encounter to compatriot Julien Benneteau, 2-6, 7-6(4), 6-2.

There are others still in the hunt to London, but they’ll need more than just the semis.

Lucas Pouille, who defeated Feliciano Lopez, 6-3, 6-4, needs to reach at least the final.

Roberto Bautista Agut, Jack Sock and John Isner all need to win the title to h have a shot. They were all winners on Day 3 in Paris. Isner took out Diego Schwartzman in three hotly contested sets, 7-6(2), 6-7(11), 6-3. Sock battled back from the brink to defeat Kyle Edmund, 4-6, 7-6(4), 7-6(5), while Bautista Agut hammered Jeremy Chardy, 6-4, 6-1.

David Goffin, currently in seventh in the race, also bolstered his chances with a three-set win over Adrian Mannarino. The Belgian can ensure qualification by defeating Benneteau in the round of 16.
