Their first meeting in an unexpected final. Almost 23-year-old Tsonga was playing just 16th main-level tournament (two years younger Djokovic 55th). The Frenchman continued his sensational run winning the opener after a forehand lob, but more consistent Djokovic took control over the following three sets – in the 4th set he was leading all the time (saved a break point at 5-all).
