Sixth-seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France eased into the second round of Wimbledon with a 7-6 (4), 6-4, 6-3 win over David Goffin of Belgium on Monday.

Tsonga served 18 aces and hit 48 winners on Court 2.

He reached the semifinals of the grass-court tournament last year and will next face fellow Frenchman Edouard Roger-Vasselin or Ernests Gulbis of Latvia.
