World no.4 Roger Federer clinch the ATP World Tour title after defeating Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in three straight sets 6-3, 7-6 (6), 6-3.
The 30-year-old Swiss, who was looking to go through the tournament unbeaten for a second consecutive year, having weathered an early storm to win the first set and looked to have victory in his grasp when he served for the match at 5-4 in the second.
But Tsonga came back, leveling and then fighting from 5-2 down in the tie-break to level, only for his opponent to clinch the crucial break in the decider.
The Frenchman became the first player to rally from a two-set deficit to beat Federer in a Grand Slam tournament in this year’s Wimbledon quarterfinals, but the hard-serving Frenchman couldn’t pull off another surprise this time.
Federer broke for a 5-3 lead in the decider and served out the match to love, sealing his 70th career title with an easy volley.
