Mon, 24 Sep 2012 7:30a.m.
Top-seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France thrashed fifth-seeded Andreas Seppi 6-1, 6-2 to retain his Moselle Open title.
The seventh-ranked Tsonga needed just 50 minutes to see off Seppi's challenge, breaking the Italian's serve four times.
Tsonga's own serve never looked like being broken as he won 85 percent of his service points.
He won nine games in a row to take a 4-0 lead in the second set.
Tsonga said "I had a complete match, but I remained focused, because a match is never closed against a player like that. ... It's the first time I've successfully defended a title."
It is Tsonga's second title of the year, after the Qatar Open in January, and boosts his chances of reaching the year-ending ATP finals in London.
