Novak Djokovic wary of Jo-Wilfried Tsonga threat

Novak Djokovic insists that he will not underestimate Jo-Wilfried Tsonga when the pair meet in the second round of Wimbledon.

Novak Djokovic has insisted that he will not underestimate Jo-Wilfried Tsonga when the pair meet in the last 16 of Wimbledon on Monday.

Djokovic reached the second week by beating Gilles Simon, while Tsonga overcame Jimmy Wang.

Despite having won his last eight matches against Tsonga, Djokovic has refused to take the Frenchman lightly ahead of their latest encounter.

"I know what threat he can cause on this surface," the Serb told the ATP's official website. "I expect him to serve well. I think that's his advantage. Obviously the serve in any corner.

"Coming to the net, he's a very aggressive player. If he's on, if he feels good on the certain day, he can beat anybody really."

Djokovic's last victory over Tsonga was a straight-sets triumph in the second round of this year's French Open.
