WIMBLEDON: Jo-Wilfried Tsonga reached the fourth round of Wimbledon for the third straight year by beating Lukas Lacko of Slovakia 6-4, 6-3, 6-3 Saturday.
The fifth-seeded Frenchman never lost his serve and broke Lacko four times to wrap up the victory in 1 hour, 36 minutes on Court 1 and set up a meeting with Mardy Fish in the round of 16.
Tsonga reached the semifinals at the All England Club last year after rallying from two sets down to beat six-time champion Roger Federer in the quarterfinals. He went on to lose against eventual champion Novak Djokovic.
Lacko was trying to reach the fourth round of a Grand Slam for the first time.
