  • Tsonga and Nishikori through to Miami third round

    3/24/12 12:59 PM | Cheryl Murray
    No. 6 seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga just edged Xavier Malisse in two tight sets to advance at the Sony Ericsson Open.

    Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (6) def. Xavier Malisse 7-5, 7-5

    Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga got off to a slow start in this second round match. Malisse secured the first break while the No. 6 seed struggled to find his rhythm in his first match of the tournament. Tsonga eventually managed to earn the break back again, and secured a second with Malisse serving to force the tiebreaker.

    The two men once again traded breaks of serve in the second set, with Tsonga snagging the match-winning service break as Malisse was trying to force a tiebreaker.

    Tsonga will take on Philipp Kohlschreiber in the third round.

    Kei Nishikori (16) def. Lukas Lacko 6-3, 6-3

    Japan’s Kei Nishikori had little difficulty getting past Slovakia’s Lukas Lacko. The No. 16 seed had a comfortable day serving, fighting off the only break point against him. Lacko was not nearly as efficient on his own serve. The Slovakian faced down 11 break points in the 2-set match, surrendering 3 breaks.

    Nishikori will take on Lukas Rosol in the third round, who upset Marcel Granollers.
