LONDON -- Stanislas Wawrinka on Friday joined Rafael Nadal in advancing to the semifinals of the ATP World Tour Finals from Group A.

Wawrinka earned his spot by first beating David Ferrer 6-7 (3), 6-4, 6-1 and then watching Nadal eliminate Tomas Berdych 6-4, 1-6, 6-3 in the final round of group play. Nadal had already clinched his berth in the semifinals before Friday's match, but the victory enabled him to win the group and avoid having to face Group B winner Novak Djokovic next. Wawrinka will play Djokovic, while Nadal will meet the winner of Saturday's match between Juan Martin del Potro and Roger Federer.
