Jo-Wilfried Tsonga vs. Sam Querrey: Wimbledon Round 2 Preview
Former two-time semi-finalist Jo-Wilfried Tsonga was taken to five sets in the opening round of Wimbledon and will now battle the American Sam Querrey in the round of 64 on Wednesday. Will he tighten his game for an easy outing or will he struggle yet again during the day?

Former top-5 player Jo-Wilfried Tsonga continued with his poor run of play in his opener here at the All England Club as well as he put up an inconsistent performance against the former World No.8 Jurgen Melzer. In reality, it must be acknowledged that Tsonga was lucky to escape in five sets in a contest that took two days to finish as at one point of time it looked highly likely that Melzer would be able to cause the upset.

However, that was not to be as Tsonga somehow managed to turn the screw in his favour – trailing the southpaw by two sets to one, the Frenchman rose to the occasion in the fourth as he got fired up after smacking a couple of his signature forehand down the line winners. The final set saw both players testing each other to the limits before Jo-Wily found a way to break his competitor at the business end of it and then closed it out on his own serve.

Meanwhile, Sam Querrey of the United States too made heavy weather of his compatriot Bradley Klahn as he accomplished a hard fought 6-7, 6-4, 6-1, 7-5 victory over him in round 1. Querrey who continuously fired big serves at the T and clobbered forehand winners at will to completely dominate the proceedings in the last three sets after dropping the first in a tiebreaker did really well in keeping his opponent guessing throughout the match.

Head-to-Head:  Both players have won one match each against one another in the past, but Jo-Willy will be the slight favourite in this match.
