Djokovic shines, Tsonga fades in China Open
Beijing: Serbian Tennis star Novak Djokovic has won the China Open Tennis title by outplaying Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga here on Sunday.

It's the third time when the World No. 2 has won the title. His previous wins came in 2009 and 2010. The veteran player took one hour and 45 minutes to grab the victory. The score was 7-6(4), 6-2 at the end of the match.

"I am planning to come back to the China Open next year," Djokovic said.

"It has been one of my most successful tournaments. This is where I love to play. I love the conditions and, as I mentioned before, I have lots of support from the fans who are very loyal and very nice," he added.

The opening set was very close, with Tsonga good at serving and registering seven aces while Djokovic looking more tactical. After exchanging breaks in the fifth and sixth games, both players held serve until the set was forced into a tiebreak.

In the deciding tiebreak, Djokovic stormed to a 3-0 lead, and Tsonga stayed calm and pulled within 4-3. After that, Tsonga was inconsistent and made a couple of deadly unforced errors before Djokovic took the first set at 7-4.

With one set in hand, Djokovic started to call the shots in the second set while Tsonga, despite powering out nine more aces, found it hard to hold serve. After breaking in the third and fifth games, Djokovic never looked back.

Earlier, American Mike Bryan overtook Australian Todd Woodbridge's mark of 83 career doubles titles when he, alongside brother Bob, beat Argentine Carlos Berlocq and Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan 6-3, 6-2 for their third title here in four years.
