No. 1 Novak Djokovic came back from a 2-1 deficit in his quarterfinal match against No. 5 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga at the 2012 French Open to pull out a 6-1, 5-7, 5-7, 7-6 (14), 6-1, win and advance to the semifinals at Roland Garros. He will take on No. 3 Roger Federer in the next round, himself a five-set, come-from-behind winner on Tuesday.
Djokovic appeared to be on his way to an easy victory after a dominant first set in which he won 25 of the 34 points played, and notched six winners to just one for his opponent. Tsonga regained his form and began teeing off as Djokovic scored on just 30 percent of his second serves. Djokovic's first serve percentage fell from 71 to just 60 percent from second to third set, and he continued to struggle with his second serve, scoring on just 35 percent. Tsonga won a majority of the points played in the set for the first time in the match, and the upset was on.
Djokovic's serve regained its form in a tense fourth set, however. Djokovic saved match point twice while serving down 5-4 and 6-5. Down 4-3 in the tiebreak, he was able to take two straight points after Tsonga missed his first serve twice in a row. He would win the tiebreak 8-6 to force a definitive fifth set. From there, Djokovic cruised. He won on 54 percent of Tsonga's first serves to break the Frenchman twice. He won match point with a back hand down the line that Tsonga didn't even bother to chase.
