Novak Djokovic Dominates Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in Paris

 

 

(June 1, 2014) No. 2 Novak Djokovic thoroughly dominated 13th-seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-1, 6-4, 6-1 in only 90 minutes on Sunday at the French Open to reach the quarterfinals for his 20th straight major tournament in a row.

Djokovic broke Tsonga seven times as Tsonga hit 38 unforced errors.

“I didn’t go through happy moments today,” Tsonga told press. “It was not fun for me. It was tough. I didn’t have time to go for my shots. I didn’t get off to a good start. Then against this type of player, things started to deteriorate. He played better and better.”

Djokovic raised his record over Tsonga to 12-5 overall, winning the last 10 encounters.

The Serb will face No. 8 Milos Raonic of Canada in the quarterfinals. The Canadian beat Marcel Granollers of Spain 6-3, 6-3, 6-3.
