  • Tsonga stunned by Dutch wildcard Sijsling

    Tsonga stunned by Dutch wildcard Sijsling Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is out of Rotterdam after one match against Igor Sijsling.

    World No. 77 Igor Sijsling secured the win of his career on Monday night in Rotterdam. He knocked out No. 3 seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in a 7-6(3), 4-6, 6-4 shocker in front of the home crowd.

    Sijsling's win was a result of excellent play from the Dutchman, particularly in the third set, and slightly lackluster form from Tsonga. Still, it was an entertaining, hard-hitting indoor match and when it was over, Sijsling had won exactly one more point than Tsonga, 104 to the Frenchman's 103.

    The Dutchman didn't have a single break point opportunity in the first set, but because he was able to fight off all four of Tsonga's chances against him, the set ended with a tiebreaker. Sijsling was the steadier player and he walked away with the first set as a result.

    Tsonga appeared to be posting the expecting comeback in the second set, but he could not keep pace with the Dutchman in the third set.

    Sijsling played fantastic tennis in the third set. He went toe-to-toe with Tsonga and actually out-hit the Frenchman to earn the victory.
