It took Djokovic 191 minutes to overcome Marin Cilic in the third round as the world no 2 progressed into the pre-quarterfinals of the 2014 French Open for the fourth year in a row.

After winning the first two sets, 6-3, 6-2, the 27-year-old Serbian conceded the third set losing 6-7 (2-7) in the tiebreaker. The six-time Grand Slam winner withstood the Croatian's attempts to force a fifth set and clinched the match, 6-4 on Friday.

Meanwhile, Tsonga got the better of Jerzy Janowicz in the third round in straight sets. The French hopeful, who reached the semi-finals of this tournament last year, took just over two hours to register a 6-4, 6-4, 6-3, win against the world no 23.

Djokovic and Tsonga have a good history of clashes in the past. The Serbian will be gunning to secure his 10th straight victory against the 29-year-old. The winner from this fourth round fixture will take on the winner between Milos Raonic and Marcel Granollers in the quarterfinals.


Djokovic holds a 11-5 lead over Tsonga in overall meetings. The duo have clashed four times in Grand Slam events where the Serbian has a 3-1 record.

Djokovic holds a comfortable 5-0 lead in the last five meetings against Tsonga.

What They Say

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga: "I've beaten him several times, but not in the big moments. If there is one player who has ruined my career it's him! If I could tip the scales back in my favour it'd be cool. With Novak, you have to fear him in many regards, but I will have to pay attention to myself. I will have to be focused from the first point to the last point. I shouldn't give him some free points. Of course, I have to produce a great match in order to defeat him."
