Djokovic was pushed to the brink by an inspired Lleyton Hewitt in a compelling Centre Court clash on day five of the Olympic tennis event. Just a day after his 6-2, 6-1 demolition of Andy Roddick, many expected Djokovic to sweep aside Hewitt in similar fashion but the Aussie has got himself in phenomenal condition over the past month and he looked on course to score a massive upset before Djokovic gritted his teeth and pulled through 4-6, 7-5, 6-1. 

“I think he plays his best tennis on grass,” Djokovic said. “He's former No. 1 of the world. I have a lot of respect for him. He's a great competitor. He has shown again that he's a player that loves to play on a big stage. He loves to play big matches, especially for his country.”

Djokovic is now just two wins away from a second Olympic medal and he'll be favourite against Tsonga, a player he beat in the Wimbledon semi-finals two years ago. It's amazing that the Frenchman's still standing after his ridiculous match with Milos Raonic two days ago and we weren't expecting him to take out Feliciano Lopez in the third round, never mind beat him in straight sets.

But how much gas will he have left in the tank ?  He's also playing doubles this week and he's been clocking up plenty of hours on court. He will feel he can test Djokovic but expect the Serb's freshness to give him a crucial edge.

Prediction: Djokovic in two.
