VIENNA: Jo-Wilfried Tsonga rallied from a set and a break down to defeat Juan Martin Del Potro 6-7 (5), 6-3, 6-4 Sunday in the final of the Erste Bank Open, claiming his second title of the season and seventh overall.

The top-seeded Tsonga will officially move past Mardy Fish to No. 7 in the 2011 points list on Monday. The top eight will qualify for the season-ending ATP finals in London next month. “It was really difficult, Juan Martin played great until in the second set,” said Tsonga, who is now 1-3 against Del Potro. “I was a bit down after losing that tiebreaker but I didn’t give away any easy points afterward.”

The second-seeded Del Potro is still waiting for his first victory at an indoor event. (Agencies)
