Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is making a comeback after an injury-hit 2018

Former Australian Open finalist Jo-Wilfried Tsonga overcame Alex de Minaur in Brisbane to join Daniil Medvedev, Kei Nishikori and Jeremy Chardy in the semi-finals.

Tsonga, 33, overcame the seventh-seeded rising Australian star 6-4 7-6 (7-2) in a high-quality contest to set up a meeting with Andy Murray’s conqueror Daniil Medvedev on Saturday.

The former world No 4, who missed seven months of 2018 after knee surgery, looked like he’d never been away and should the Frenchman continue his fine form then he will be regarded as one of the dark horses in Melbourne when the first Grand Slam of 2019 starts on January 14.
