Jo-Wilfried Tsonga: Victory in just 50 minutes

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga retained his Moselle Open title with a dominant win over Andreas Seppi in Sunday's final.

The world number seven proved too strong for his Italian opponent, wrapping up a 6-1 6-2 victory in just 50 minutes.

Frenchman Tsonga broke Seppi, ranked 28 in the world, four times with his own serve rarely under threat.

It marks a second ATP trophy of the year for Tsonga following his success in Doha in January.

The Frenchman said his week hadbeen "perfect".

"I had a complete match with no gaps," he said.

"Of course, it's a lot easier when I can make a difference in two or three shots. If I had to define this week, I would simply say it was a perfect one.

"This is the first time I have been able to defend a title. So it's even more special that it's here at the Moselle Open, where I am the ambassador."
