Tsonga has won both their previous matches. Those matches were in 2015. Their most recent was in November 2015 on an indoor hard court. He won in straight sets. Their other match was in August and went to a deciding set.
Tsonga served well in his straight sets win over Fognini. He faced just 1 break point which he saved.
Bautista Agut’s win over Isner was a bit of a sloppy match with both being broken 3 times. Isner pulled out of the doubles straight after claiming to have a knee problem.
Tsonga is the better player on this surface but I want at least 1.70 before backing
