Tsonga booked a place in the quarter-finals after Nikolay Davydenko withdrew from the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships due to an injury. This saw the Frenchman make progress even without playing in the second round.

The 28-year-old defeated Romania's Victor Hanescu in the first round in straight sets 6-2, 6-4. A victory on Thursday at the Centre Court will see Tsonga make it to the final four of the competition.


Berdych has a 4-2 lead over Tsonga in the overall meetings. The pair have never met in a grand slam event. Berdych holds a 3-2 lead over Tsonga in the last five previous meetings between the pair.
