Jo-Wilfried Tsonga won the Montpellier title
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga won the Montpellier Open title on Sunday with a 6-4 6-2 win over fellow Frenchman Pierre-Hugues Herbert.
It was Tsonga’s first ATP Tour title in more than 15 months – last season he lost the Montpellier semi-final then missed seven months through injury. As a result, Tsonga was ranked as the world No 210 heading into this week’s tournament.
He needed just 73 to defeat Herbert in straight sets, dropping just four points behind his first serve.
