London: France`s Jo-Wilfried Tsonga made it through to the second round at Wimbledon on Tuesday after playing just one game of tennis.

Tsonga was leading Austria`s Jurgen Melzer 6-1, 3-6, 3-6, 6-2, 5-4 when rain stopped play late on Monday evening.

The 14th seed returned to Court One on Tuesday and played just four points, completing the sole game with an ace to finish the match.

The two-time Wimbledon semi-finalist faces either Bradley Klahn or Sam Querrey, both of the United States, in the second round.
