Tsonga Secures Thailand Title

"I feel great, it’s got to be one of the best moments of my life"

Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has roared back and secured his first tour title today in Bangkok, Thailand by defeating Serbian Novak Djokovic 7-6, 6-4. In a rematch of the 2008 Australian Open final, 23-year-old Tsonga turned the tables and took the trophy.

"It came down to maybe a couple of points. The last game was very hard and I was just saying in my head “Go On! Do It!” so it was incredible. I was not nervous, I was just a little bit nervous about Novak because he has played just unbelievably and, for me, it’s difficult to play against him because I have a really good serve and I think one of the best parts of his game is the return."

After spending the summer recooperating from knee surgery, Tsonga has blasted back onto the tour with an obvious determination. He could very well play his way into qualifying for the Tennis Masters Cup Shanghai for the first time.

"I feel great, it’s got to be one of the best moments of my life," said Tsonga. "I just played unbelievable tennis against Novak and it was just my dream so I’m really happy."

“This win is very special, I’ve wanted this since I was young,” Tsonga told reporters. “This is a dream come true. I’m happy to win, Novak is a great player.

“In tennis, you have to enjoy the moment. It’s great to win at last and I want to win more and more.”

Way to Go Tsonga!!
