Paris - Stanislas Wawrinka and Richard Gasquet completed the eight-man line-up for the season-ending World Tour Finals in London when Milos Raonic was eliminated in the third round of the Paris Masters on Thursday.

The Montenegro-born, 22-year-old Raonic went down 7-6 (15/13), 6-4 to Czech number one Tomas Berdych.

Swiss world number eight Wawrinka qualifies for his first ever World Finals while Gasquet, who takes on Japanese Kei Nishikori in the third round later in Paris, returns for the first time since 2007.
