Jo-Wilfried Tsonga needed just four points and two minutes to complete a five-set victory over Jurgen Melzer at Wimbledon on Tuesday.

The 14th-seeded Frenchman was set to serve for the match at 5-4 in the deciding set when rain forced a suspension and eventually a postponement of the first-round match Monday.

Tsonga, a two-time semifinalist at Wimbledon, came back out Tuesday and held serve at love, finishing with his 20th ace, to complete a 6-1, 3-6, 3-6, 6-2, 6-4 win.
