Having won the first set 7-6 (8-6), Norrie lost a second set tie-break 7-3 before Da Silva won the final set 6-2.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga served up an all-French final at the South of France Open in Montpellier with a straight-sets semi-final win on Saturday.

Jo-Wilfred Tsonga poses with the title. Previous year in Montpellier, he held two match points in the semifinals against his compatriot, Lucas Pouille, but unfortunately, the Manceau retired with the score at 6-1, 5-5 due to left hamstring injury.

Herbert required 93 minutes to wrap up his 6-2, 7-5 victory over Czech Tomas Berdych, who struggled with five double faults.

Tsonga next plays Radu Albot of Macedonia, who won 6-2, 7-6 (2) against qualifier Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus. At the Cordoba Open, Guido Pella set up an all-Argentine final after beating Uruguayan Pablo Cuevas.

A break late in the opener left Tsonga serving for the set and he maintained that momentum to go a break up in the second. In the third, he got an early break and eventually closed it out on his second match point. Pella will face Juan Ignacio Londero - appearing in his first ATP final - after his countryman defeated Federico Delbonis 6-1 6-0 in one hour.

In the Sofia Open final, third seed Daniil Medvedev of Russian Federation beat Hungarian Marton Fucsovics 6-4 6-3.

In a tight opening set, Tsonga earned the only two break points at 4-4.
