With temperatures exceeding 100F in Melbourne, getting the job done quickly was the order of the day and Tsonga was clinical in dispatching Go Soeda 6-3 7-6 (7/1) 6-3.

Although pleased with the win, seventh seed Tsonga was not pleased by the manner in which he achieved it.

"I didn't play a good match," complained the Frenchman. "I didn't have the right attitude in this match. Hopefully I will be better in the next one and try to play my game more than I did today."

Tsonga will play Blaz Kavkic in round three after the Slovenian came through a five-set struggle with wild card James Duckworth.
