Jo-Wilfried Tsonga brushes aside Pouille to win third Marseille title

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga found a way to get past Nick Kyrgios' serve to earn a three-set victory in the semi-finals of the Open 13 Marseille.

The 31-year-old won his third career Marseille crown for a 14th career title, and his second of 2017 after Rotterdam last week.

"I've seen referees wait 5-6 seconds after the ball's gone out", Kyrgios said, according to news.com.au. "It's good for my confidence".

He was broken at the start of the match and again at 3-3 in the second set as Tsonga secured his second title of 2017.

US Education Secretary Calls Obama Transgender Memo 'Overreach'
There has been a lot of misinformation circulated about Betsy DeVos , and I appreciate the chance to set the record straight. Despite calling Trump an "interloper", DeVos will definitely be a useful ally to President Trump within his administration.

Sixth seed Richard Gasquet overcame top seed Gael Monfils in an all-French quarter-final 6-7 (5/7), 6-4, 6-2.

Kyrgios won his first ATP title at this event in Marseille past year, but will not repeat the feat after Tsonga claimed a 7-6 (7-5) 2-6 6-4 victory.

And he carried that momentum into the final, seeing off a player in Pouille who beat Rafael Nadal en route to the US Open quarter-finals previous year.

"I wanted to show him I'd be there for each shot", said Tsonga, who will now climb to eighth in the ATP world rankings.

That would allow the Pacers to offer him the designated player exception and pay him roughly $212 million over six years. One potential hang-up regarding George is a potential to leave in the summer of 2018.

Tsonga improved to a 17-3 record on the season.

Pouille thumped Gasquet in straight sets and had even been leading 5-0 in the second set.

"Jo is right back on form and I'm glad to be playing him tomorrow". I served very well when I needed too and for Lucas it was hard to create opportunities.'​.

Sixers Trade Ilyasova To Hawks For Splitter, 2nd Round Picks
At 6-foot-10, Ilyasova can also share the frontcourt with Millsap by having the flexibility to play at both forward spots. This trade is the perplexing one, seeing how Ilyasova has performed during his tenure as a Philadelphia 76er.
