Slovak Martin Klizan caused the biggest upset of this year’s US Open so far after he defeated Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in four sets 6-4 1-6 6-1 6-3 to make it to the third round.
Fifth seeded Tsonga had a slow start into the match, but managed to find his rhythm as he cruised through the second set, levelling the score at one set apiece. However, from then on, it was all about the left-handed Klizan. The Slovak, who is currently ranked 52 in the world, literally outpowered the Frenchman as he only allowed him four more games to cruise to the biggest win of his career.
Klizan, who is coached by his coutryman and former world no.6 Karol Kucera, will play the winner of the match between Jeremy Chardy and Matthew Ebden next.
