Tsonga cap­tures Open Sud crown

The Times-Tribune - - SPORTS -

Jo-wil­fried Tsonga beat Pierre-hugues Her­bert, 6-4, 6-2, in an all-french fi­nal of the Open Sud de France on Sun­day, win­ning his 17th ca­reer ti­tle and deny­ing his coun­try­man a first.

Tsonga broke the sev­enth­seeded Her­bert’s serve three times and dropped only four points through­out the match on his own serve.

The 33-year-old Tsonga was out for seven months last year fol­low­ing a left-knee in­jury. His pre­vi­ous ti­tle was in Oc­to­ber 2017 at the Euro­pean Open in An­twerp.
