France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga scored a 7-6 (7-5), 6-0 victory over Kei Nishikori in the third round at the Shanghai Rolex Masters on Thursday.

It was a disappointing end to a match that started out with much promise for Nishikori.

Nishikori, the 12th seed, broke Tsonga's serve in the second game of the opening set and went on to take a 4-2 lead.
