Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France defeated Ivan Ljubicic of Croatia in straight sets, 6-3, 7-6 (4), 6-3 on Sunday to capture the Moselle Open title. This is Tsonga's first title win since 2009. He shot a backhand drop shot to go up a break and lead 2-1 in the final set. He took the win after Ljubicic double-faulted on Tsonga's match point.
This is Tsonga's sixth career title and his first since his win in Tokyo in 2009. This has given him a greater chance of earning a placement spot in the ATP World Tour Finals held in London.
Ljubicic was unable to maintain his powerful serve that he used against Gilles Muller of Luxembourg in the semifinals. Tsonga lost some steam in the second set but was able to hold on in the tiebreaker which opened up an easily won final set.
On the doubles side of play, Jamie Murray & Andre Sa of Brazil defeated Lukas Dlouhy of the Czech Republic and Marcelo Melo of Brazil, 6-4, 7-6 (7), in the Moselle Open doubles final.
