Jo-Wilfried Tsonga ended his Mubadala World Tennis Championship on a winning note, defeating Tomas Berdych in a third set match tiebreaker in the fifth-sixth place play-off.


Tsonga, who lost his quarter-final against David Goffin on Thursday, fought back from losing the opening set tie-break to prevail 6-7 (5-7), 6-3, 10-3.


There was little between the two players as serve dominated. The only break came early in the second set as Berdych appeared to struggle with a left leg injury.


Upon levelling the match, Tsonga comfortably closed out the victory in the third set match tie-break.
