Black Tennis Pro's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga South African Open QuarterfinalTop-seeded Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga advanced to his first semi-final of the 2009 ATP World Tour season after defeating seventh seed Kristof Vliegen of Belgium 6-4, 6-1 at the SA Tennis Open on Friday. The 23 year old dominated on serve in the 73-minute encounter, hitting nine aces and winning 90 per cent of points on first serve. He has not dropped a set this week at the Montecasino in northern Johannesburg.

Tsonga improved to 10-2 on the 2009 ATP World Tour season, that includes three quarter-final exits at Brisbane (l. to Gasquet), Sydney (W/O vs Nieminen) and the Australian Open (l. to Verdasco). Vliegen, 26, could only convert one of five break point opportunities and drops to 3-3 this year.
