  • Tsonga wins, Wawrinka advances to play Djokovic

    5/9/12 6:48 PM | Ricky Dimon
    Jo-Wilfried Tsonga holds off Ryan Harrison in straight sets on Wednesday in Madrid. Tsonga is joined in the third round by Stanislas Wawrinka, a convincing winner over Jurgen Melzer.

    (4) Jo-Wilfried Tsonga d. (WC) Ryan Harrison 6-2, 7-6(4)

    Tsonga earned his second clay-court win over Harrison in just more than a month as he prevailed in one hour and 21 minutes during second-round action at the Mutua Madrid Open on Wednesday. The No. 4 seed, who beat Harrison in a Davis Cup rubber that marked their only previous encounter, struck four aces without double-faulting and never faced a break point.

    Harrison showed no signs of being competitive in the opening set. The 20-year-old American dropped serve at 1-2 and eventually saw his opponent serve it out at 5-2. Harrison did extremely well to battle out of a 0-40 hole early in the second before managing to force a tiebreaker. Tsonga twice gave back mini-breaks and even gave a point to Harrison on a double-bounce situation, but the Frenchman got the job done seven points to four.

    Stanislas Wawrinka d. Jurgen Melzer 6-1, 6-4

    A dominant performance saw Wawrinka lose a mere nine points in nine service games while saving the only break point he faced as the Swiss cruised past Melzer in one hour and two minutes on Wednesday. Wawrinka struck five aces and double-faulted only once to set up a third-round showdown against No. 1 seed and defending champion Novak Djokovic.

    Melzer was hopeless right from the start. The Austrian won three points in his first four return games and watched his opponent hold at love three times in the opening set. Melzer raised his level slightly in the second, but he dropped serve once and that was one too many times. Interestingly, Melzer won an impressive 76 percent of his second-serve points but a shockingly bad 46 percent of the points when he put a first delivery in play.
