Tsonga stays on hot streak to win title in Marseille

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga found a way to get past Nick Kyrgios' serve to earn a three-set victory in the semi-finals of the Open 13 Marseille.

Victory yesterday in the final would mean a career first for Tsonga of back-to-back ATP Tour triumphs and marks a real return to form for last year's US Open quarter-finalist.

Tsonga is in his second straight final, having won the title in Rotterdam last week and will face the victor of the second semifinal between his countrymen Richard Gasquet and Lucas Pouille.

Tsonga will face his compatriot Pouille in Sunday's final after he beat sixth seed Richard Gasquet 7-5 6-3. "I did what I had to do, it was great tennis".

Second seed Tsonga, now 11th in the ATP rankings, notched up a 6-4, 6-4 win over fourth seed Pouille to become Marseille champion for a third time.

The second-seeded Tsonga advanced to his second title match in as many weeks by outlasting the third-seeded Australian 7-6 (5), 2-6, 6-4.

"I've seen referees wait 5-6 seconds after the ball's gone out", Kyrgios said.

"I wanted to show him I'd be there for each shot", added Tsonga, who will now climb to eighth in the ATP world rankings.

The 23-year-old Pouille won the opening set by breaking Gasquet in the 12th game and carried the momentum into the second set by winning the first five games to remove any suspense. "I'll need to serve well to beat him". "I tried my best, but he was too good".
