Tsonga overcomes Djokovic for maiden title

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga won his maiden tour title when he beat world number three Novak Djokovic in straight sets in the Thailand Open.

Tsonga lost to Djokovic in the Australia Open final but after that he 'disappeared' from the tennis scene because of injury but over the last three months or so he has been making some steady progress back culminating in this win.

Its interesting to note that had he won the Australian Open, Tsonga's first tour title would have been a grand slam.

Meanwhile in another final at the China Open Andy Roddick beat Dudi Sela. I think unseeded Sela did very well to reach the final in Beijing but he came against a determined Roddick and he will hope for a similar chance in the near future.
