Making his official debut as a player inside the top 100 (68 to be exact) Bernard Tomic hasn’t had the start he was hoping for. Tomic was hoping to use his intelligent variety of play to claim the scalp of Jo Wilfried Tsonga but the Frenchman was too powerful for the young Australian and dealt with him comfortably 6-3 ,7-6 .
After strong opening service games it was Jo who broke first for a 4-2 lead making no mistake as he served for the set.
Again Jo took a 4-2 lead in the second but Tomic refused to back down, breaking back at 5-5 as Tsonga tried to serve for the match.
The huge serves and powerful prowess of Tsonga crushed Tomic 7-1 in the second set tiebreak.
Tsonga will now face Roger Federer for a place in the quarterfinals.
