Runner-up at the 2018 Stuttgart Open, Milos Raonic continued his comeback from injury by beating Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in Germany on Wednesday.
Milos Raonic, still on the comeback trail from injury, made hard work of beating Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-4 6-7 (5-7) 7-6 (7-1) at the Stuttgart Open.
Raonic, runner-up in 2018, has returned to action at this tournament having withdrawn from the French Open due to his failure to overcome a knee injury sustained at the Miami Open in late March.
The sixth seed hit 24 aces as both players struggled to make any great inroads against serve.
