Sweden's Robin Soderling kept alive his hopes of qualifying for the ATP Tour Championships by defeating Russia's Nikolay Davydenko 6-3, 3-6, 6-4 in the third round of the Paris Masters.

Davydenko was given some pills to swallow by a doctor and it seemed to work as he jumped out into a decisive 3-0 lead in the second set.

The final set was tense until the 10th game when Davydenko hit a backhand wide to set up match point and then drifted a backhand long to send Soderling into the quarters.
