Dimitrov must wait for ATP spot

Grigor Dimitrov needs to wait a bit longer to seal his place in the season-ending ATP Finals in London.

The Bulgarian lost 6-4, 6-2 to Argentina's Juan Martin del Potro in last night's Stockholm Open final.

A victory over del Potro would have made him the fifth player to book his ticket to the Nov 12-19 event.

Only four players - Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Alexander Zverev and Dominic Thiem - had qualified for the eight-man event.

Meanwhile, Federer is bidding for an eighth title at the Swiss Indoors, which starts today. - WIRE SERVICES
