(Reuters) - Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga chalked up his 400th career victory in beating Czech Tomas Berdych to reach the final of the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament final in Rotterdam on Saturday.

Tsonga, 31, went through 6-3 6-4 to move one victory away from his first title since September, 2015.

He will face either Belgium's David Goffin or fellow Frenchman Pierre-Huguet Herbert in the final.

Tsonga needed just one break of serve to snaffle the opening set against the 2014 champion and eased through after a repeat at the start of the second.

Dominant throughout, he did not face a single break point.
