MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) All these years later, although with much less on the line, Novak Djokovic again got the better of Jo-Wilfried Tsonga at the Australian Open.
The No. 1-seeded Djokovic beat Tsonga 6-3, 7-5, 6-4 in the second round at Melbourne Park in a rematch of their 2008 final. This one started Thursday night and wrapped up after 12:30 a.m. on Friday.
Certainly you could feel tension on the court from the beginning. I think we were both going through a lot of emotions, Djokovic said during an on-court interview.
