Jo-Wilfried Tsonga happy with World Tour draw

Number seven seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has revealed that he is happy with his draw for the ATP World Tours Finals next week.



The Frenchman has been drawn alongside former world number ones Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, while Mardy Fish completes Group A.



Despite admitting that he has been dealt a tough group, the 26-year-old has chosen to look for the positives.



“Obviously it couldn’t be an easy draw but it’s a very good group for me,” he said.



“I’ll be playing against Roger once again, I’ll play Rafa on a surface that suits me really well and I’ll be expecting to beat Mardy Fish.”



Tsonga lost in the Paris Masters final to Federer on Sunday afternoon.
