TORONTO (AP) — Jo-Wilfried Tsonga reached the Rogers Cup semifinals with a second straight upset victory.
The 13th-seeded Frenchman beat eighth-seeded Andy Murray 7-6 (5), 4-6, 6-4 on Friday.
On Thursday, Tsonga upset top-seeded Novak Djokovic of Serbia 6-2, 6-2.
“I don’t have a lot of confidence behind me,” Tsonga said. “I try to be consistent in my work, and I’m sure it will give me some rewards.
“This week is kind of rewards for me, you know, to play like this, to beat two guys in the top 10. It’s good, and I hope it will continue.”
Murray reached the quarterfinals by walkover when Richard Gasquet withdrew.
“I thought it was a high level match with a few games by both of us in the second and third sets that were a bit scrappy,” Murray said.
Later Friday, Canada’s Milos Raonic faces Spain’s Feliciano Lopez. Kevin Anderson takes on Grigor Dimitrov, while David Ferrer meets Roger Federer.
