Tsonga Defends Metz Crown

Top seed and seventh ranked Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France demolished Italy’s Andreas Seppi 6-1, 6-2 in 50 minutes on Sunday to defend his Moselle Open title at Metz, France.

“I had a complete match with no gaps, as opposed to yesterday, “Tsonga said. “Of course, it’s a lot easier when I can make a difference in two or three shots. If I had to define this week, I would simply say it was a perfect one.

“This is the first time I have been able to defend a title. So it’s even more special that it’s here at the Moselle Open, where I am the ambassador.”

“I want to congratulate Jo because he played too well today,” Seppi said..” His serve was impressive and there’s very little I could do. Unfortunately, this is the way it goes sometime indoors, matches go by really fast without being able to do anything. It was a great week for me and overall I am happy to have reached the final here.”

It was Tsonga’s second tournament victory in 2012, ninth career ATP title. He also won the Qatar Open in January.
