Jo-Wilfried Tsonga beat fourth seed Tomas Berdych at a weather-hit Roland Garros Sunday, winning their fourth round tie 6-3, 6-2, 6-7 (5/7), 6-3 on a day of mixed fortunes for French hopes.In the other match completed, Japan's fifth-seeded Kei Nishikori comfortably saw off the challenge of Russia's Teymuraz Gabashvili and he will be the next opponent for Tsonga.The Czech player rallied briefly in the third set as Tsonga's level dropped, but after a brief scare at the start of the fourth set, Tsonga won five games in a row to move through.Tsonga was one of five French players into the last 16, equaling the best home showing at Roland Garros in the Open-era since 1968 .The two other Frenchmen into the last 16 – Richard Gasquet and Jeremy Chardy – were down to play their ties Monday with Gasquet against top seed Novak Djokovic and Chardy facing third seed Andy Murray.
