Betting on Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga secured his second US Open quarterfinal with a comprehensive 6-4, 6-3, 6-4 win over Benoit Paire on Sunday. It was a fantastic performance from the Frenchman, who needed just one hour and 42 minutes to record the straight-sets win.

[sc:Other240banner ]Tsonga, who improved to 3-0 against Paire, blasted 29 winners and committed just 18 unforced errors. What proved to be the difference in the contest, though, was his excellent serve. Tsonga put into play 59 percent (44-of-74) of his first serves and winning 89 percent (39-of-44) of those points.

Next up for Tsonga is a last-eight clash with Marin Cilic. The 30-year-old will have his work cut out for him against the defending champion, as he has lost four of his seven previous matches against Cilic. This will be their first meeting, though, in a Grand Slam tournament.

For Tsonga to level his head-to-head series against Cilic, he needs to bring his aggressive style and continue his strong net play in the quarterfinals. He won 21 of his 27 net points against Paire in the previous round. The Frenchman has won 73 percent (87-of-119) of his total net points in the entire tournament thus far.

Tsonga is 7-3 in his last 10 matches.

For Cilic to extend his dominance against Tsonga this coming Tuesday, he needs to continue his excellent play on the service end. He won 84 percent of his first serve points against Chardy in the previous match and drilled-in 23 aces in his fourth-round encounter with Chardy.

Cilic is 6-4 in his last 10 matches.
