Novak Djokovic Roars Back For Huge Win After Fighting Off Four Jo-Willy Tsonga Match Points

•, Lorenzo Arguello
Number one seeded Novak Djokovic won an epic, five-set French Open quarterfinals match versus Frenchman  Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-1, 5-7, 5-7, 7-6, 6-1.

At one point in the fourth set Djokovic was barely holding on after coming back from a 15-40, double-match point to make it 5-5.

 But Tsonga won the next game to take a 6-5 lead in the fourth set. 

Djokovic then forced a tiebreaker, winning it 8-6 to tie the match at 2-2 and force a fifth set.

The best player in the world found some extra strength at the end, completely settling down to take the fifth set in commanding fashion and eliminate a clearly gassed Tsonga.

Tsonga simply couldn't put Djokovic away, as he wasted four match point opportunities during the crazy fourth set.
