Tsonga captures Open Sud crown
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.
