Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is currently ranked 8th in the world.

He is known for his powerful, precise serves, as well as heavy forehands. Additionally, his backhand down the line has become one of the best in men's tennis. He has an offensive baseline style of play, and is also known for his superb feel at the net. He is currently one of the very few remaining players who often utilize a serve-and-volley type of play. All of these weapons make him a force to behold on faster surfaces, such as grass and hard courts.

Tsonga won his first career ATP Masters Series championship at the 2008 Paris Masters on November 2, 2008. In the final, he defeated the No. 8 seed David Nalbandian in 3 sets.
