Tsonga captures Marseilles

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga cruised to the 14th title of his career when he won the Open 13 Marseilles event for a third time at the weekend.

This is the best feeling you can have, winning a title

He defeated fellow Frenchman Lucas Pouille 6-4 6-4 in just 69 minutes and was never under any pressure.
It was Tsonga’s second consecutive title following his success at the ABN Amro World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam last week when he beat the 11th ranked David Goffin.
Meanwhile Jack Sock also won his second tournament of the year when Milos Raonic was forced to conceded a walk-over in the final of the Delray Beach Open thanks to a hamstring tear in his right leg.

In South America Austria’s Dominic Thiem won his eighth ATP title when he beat Pablo Carreno Busta in the final of the Rio Open in Brazil.
Thiem won 7-5 6-4 in what proved to be an excellent week in which he never dropped a set.
“This is the best feeling you can have, winning a title,” he told the Tour’s official website. “I played five very good matches, especially in the semis and final against amazing players.”
