ATP Monte Carlo - Tsonga v Fognini
Fourth seed Roger Federer is through to the quarter-final round in Monte Carlo, yet he did have to recover from a slow start and a 1-3 deficit against Lukas Rosol, before ultimately snatching the victory 6-4, 6-1. While celebrating his birthday on Wednesday afternoon, French No. 2 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga rallied for a three set victory over the emotional Italian No. 1 Fabio Fognini to set up a quarter-final clash with the 17-time Grand Slam champion. This marks the 15th time these two competitors will meet on the professional tour, with Federer leading the series 10-4. They are 2-2 in their last four meetings, and 1-1 on clay courts, with Tsonga earning the most recent win on the red dust at last year’s French Open.
