Richard and Jo-Wilfred Tsonga have captured the Sydney doubles title, with a 4-6, 6-4, 11-9 (Match TB) over the number one seeds, Bob and Mike Bryan.
Saving 3 match points, this is Richard's first title of the season!
"Watched by approximately 8000 fans, the Bryans looked to be on course for their 45th career title after claiming the first set 6-4. However, Tsonga and Gasquet, playing together for just the second time, leveled the match after 59 minutes when they broke in the 10th game of the second set. The French duo then won five straight points from trailing 6-9 in the Match tie-break to seal victory in one hour and 12 minutes at the Medibank International."
