Tsonga through to the 3rd round

What is it with this guy and the Australian Open. Must be his tournament.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is through to the third round of the Australian Open after prevailing in a big-hitting battle with Ivan Ljubicic.

The first three sets of the match all went to tie-breaks as both players looked dominant behind their serves.

The first two were split before Tsonga crucially won the third set despite facing three set points. The big-hitting match took its toll on the Croatian in the fourth as he lost his serve twice to fall to a 6-7 (4-7) 7-6 (10-8) 7-6 (9-7) 6-2 defeat.

“I played really well out there. I was proud of myself because I was very courageous today,” the Frenchman said.
