The walk was too much for Jo-Wilfried Tsonga swept in the second round of Roland Garros by Novak Djokovic. The French, beaten in three sets, has “simply not been at the height” of his Serb opponent this Sunday on the Central court. He has then been outmuscled in 6/1, 6/4, 6/1.
Djokovic, “very glad about” his “match” will play his 20th consecutive quarter final in a Grand Slam. The World No. 2 will face Milos Raonic. The seeded No. 8 on his side has moved past in three identical sets Marcel Granollers of Spain, 6/3, 6/3, 6/3. He is the first Canadian to reach the quarterfinals of the Internationaux de France.
