It currently ranks 15th in the ATP ranking. In the season has 34 victories and 12 defeats (Hard 7-6 / I Hard 19-2).
It continues its great sequence of victories since the title last week at ATP Antwerp, yesterday won the 7th match then beat German Alexander Zverev 7-6 (6) 6-2.
In the previous matches 3-game wins against Damir Dzumhur 6-7 (5) 7-6 (7) 6-1 and Karen Khachanov 6-7 (2) 6-4 6-3.
Philipp Kohlschreiber, a 34-year-old German tennis player, currently holds the No. 34 position in the ATP ranking. In the season has 32 victories and 18 defeats (Hard 12-7 / I Hard 5-2).
This is the best Kohlschreiber tournament on the fastest floor, previously its best results only on clay, even with a title won.
He still has not lost sets so far and has beaten good players like Schwartzman 7-5 7-6 (6), Herbert 7-6 (4) 6-3 and John Isner 7-6 (6) 6-4.
The Frenchman completely dominates the clashes, the last match between them was at the same ATP Vienna last year, victory of Tsonga 7-6 (6) 6-2.
Prognosis Jo-Wilfried Tsonga vs Philipp Kohlschreiber:
I even think the match will be more balanced than the odds point out, Kohlschreiber is a player with good serve for the floor and in the exchanges of balls manages to behave well.
But I can not bet against Tsonga, in addition to having won all the direct confrontations, the main thing is that he is in great form, acting very well and should confirm favoritism, also has the motivation remembering that Tsonga is still in the fight for a place in the ATP Finals.
