Tsonga wins ATP Tour title in Montpellier

ATP Montpellier Tsonga and Berdych prevail. Denis Shapovalov loses

His previous title was in October 2017 at the European Open in Antwerp.

The 33-year-old played just 12 matches in 2018 due to injury and began the week ranked 210th in the world, but was simply too good for Herbert, serving seven aces and winning 87 per cent of points on his first serve.

Juan Ignacio Londero, who was a wild-card entrant at the Cordoba Open, lifted his first ATP Tour title beating countryman Guido Pella 3-6, 7-5, 6-1.

The pair shared the opening six games before trading three straight breaks of serve, with Medvedev securing two of those, before the Russian served out the first set.

Tsonga then opened up a 5-1 lead and the match was beyond Herbert. Medvedev, who is bidding to win the fourth tour title of his career, was always in control against the former world No 6, wrapping up victory in one hour and 16 minutes.

The announcement comes the day before the California governor's State of the State address, set for this Tuesday, February 12. Then-California Senate leader Kevin De Leon and 26 state legislators urged Brown to end the National Guard agreement.

This was their third meeting and Jo scored as many wins, losing just three games against the younger opponent here in Montpellier two years ago and standing as the dominant figure today as well, losing nine points on serve and scoring three breaks to control the scoreboard all the time.

Fucsovics hit back immediately, but Medvedev regained his advantage in the next and went on to clinch the opener.

He will face either compatriot Jo-Wilfried Tsonga or Moldova's Radu Albot on Sunday.

Medvedev finished the job with a break to love.
