Wimbledon Scores 2012: Tsonga Advances To Semis Over Kohlschreiber

No. 5 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga joined Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer in the semifinals at the 2012 Championships at Wimbledon with a 7-6 (12), 4-6, 7-6 (10), 6-2, win over No. 27 Philipp Kohlschreiber. Tsonga now awaits the winner between No. 4 Andy Murray and No. 7 David Ferrer.

The ebullient Frenchman had 17 winners to 10 for Kohlschrediber, and 43 total winners in the match. The first three sets were tightly contested, but Tsonga looked dominant in the fourth. Kohlschreiber won just one of the 17 receiving points he faced, and was broken twice.

Tsonga is still looking for his first Grand Slam title. He has now made the semifinals twice at the All England Club, the first time being last season. His only finals appearance at a Slam came in 2008 at the French Open.
