Top seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga needed only 50 minutes to wrap up a very comfortable 6-1 6-2 win against Italy’s Andreas Seppi in today’s final at the Moselle Open 2012 in Metz.
With this victory, he successfully defended his title here after having defeated Ljubicic in last year’s final.
The Frenchman took control of today’s encounter from the very beginning, breaking Seppi in the 4th game to go 3-1 up. He then went on to capture the next 7 games to give himself a more than convincing 6-1 4-0 lead. It was only then that Seppi managed to get on the scoreboard once again, but his two consecutive service games to love came very late and Tsonga closed out the match with his 24th winner.
Seppi struggled with his serve today and the Frenchman used it very well to his advantage, storming the net on various occasions after a precisely prepared attack. On top of that, Tsonga has won an amazing 100% of points after his first serve found it’s mark and this was the best possible way to erase his 4th round US Open 2012 loss against Martin Klizan of Slovakia, who has won his first ATP title after beating Fabio Fognini in today’s St. Petersburg final.
