Japan’s World No. 6, Kei Nishikori, qualified for the ATP World Tour Finals for the second year in a row on Saturday as the eight-man field was settled for the Nov. 15-22 event in London.

Nishikori and David Ferrer of Spain took the last two spots after Richard Gasquet was defeated by Rafael Nadal in the semifinals of the Swiss Indoors. Nishikori and Ferrer are tied for seventh place in the points race with 3,945.

Nishikori, who reached the semifinals of the ATP World Tour Finals last year, has won three titles this season and reached the last eight of the Australian Open and the French Open.
