2014 French Open Update: Djokovic Embarrasses Tsonga In Front of Home Crowd
By James Patrick Quizon | June 2, 2014 5:37 AM EST
Expectations were high for the Jo-Wilfried Tsonga-Novak Djokovic match in the fourth round of the men's singles of the 2014 French Open. However, only one man showed up to play on Sunday with the Serbian embarrassing the Frenchman in straight sets, 6-1, 6-4, 6-1.
The pair was involved in an epic five-setter in 2012 also in this Grand Slam but the No. 2 seed Djokovic was on a different plane on this day. The Serbian broke Tsonga 7-of-9 times and was very efficient both in his first and second serves (70 and 77 per cent, respectively). Tsonga also had-- again, embarrassingly-- 38 unforced errors in the match.
The only good news for Tsonga was that the one-sided affair was done in one hour and 29 minutes-- less time for the Frenchman to be embarrassed in front of his home crowd.
Djokovic will take on Milos Raonic of Canada in the quarterfinals.
