Jo-Wilfried Tsonga Player Profile
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is a threat to anyone on his day
Tsonga can trouble anyone in the draw if he finds the consistency in his monster serve.
After missing the Australian Open through injury, the Frenchman reached his second French Open semi-final before going down to eventual winner Stan Wawrinka in four close sets.
He went into the US Open seeded 19th, before an epic quarter-final defeat to Marin Cilic. After losing the first two sets, Tsonga saved three match points in the fourth as the match went to a fifth set.
Elsewhere, Tsonga earned a 12th singles title and a third at the Moselle Open in Metz with victory over Gilles Simon.
He'll also take comfort from his showing at the Shanghai Masters, where he defeated Rafa Nadal en route to losing to Novak Djokovic in the semis.
The 30-year-old's heavy serve and willingness to play at the net makes him a relatively unique player in today's baseline-oriented game.
