Jo-Wilfried Tsonga wasn’t given an easy ride by Javier Marti on Tuesday at the Valencia Open 500, but he managed to defeat the 19 year-old in three sets (4-6, 7-5, 6-2). With the victory, the Frenchman has edged slightly closer towards qualification for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals.

Tsonga has also gained ground on Tomas Berdych, who is currently sixth in the ATP year-to-date rankings. Having won 45 points by winning his first round matchup, Tsonga is now only five points behind the Czech.

Tsonga is in a rich vein of form, and he’s now won 12 of his last 14 matches. This has enabled him to win ATP titles in Metz and Vienna. On a streak like this, he might even be capable of mounting a title challenge the end of season competition.

He’ll fall considerably short if he plays like he did on Tuesday, but this kind of performance is perhaps to be expected from a player of Tsonga’s nature. He plays a powerful and risky game, which occasionally results in too many unforced errors. When he’s in the zone, it’s a different matter, and very few players can overcome him.
