Tsonga beaten again at Kooyong

     Tennis player Kei Nishikori has beaten French tennis star Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the Kooyong Classic.
The young Japanese, who is ranked 26 in the world, beat Tsonga 1-6 6-4 6-1.
     He was called up at the last minute to replace Canadian Milos Raonic, who pulled out of the event overnight after suffering a stomach upset.
  The win was Nishikori's second over Tsonga - he also beat him at the ATP Masters at Shanghai in October.
The 22-year-old also boasts a win over world No.1 Novak Djokovic, who he defeated in Switzerland last year.
      In the following matches on Thursday, Australia's Bernard Tomic was facing Frenchman Gael Monfils and American Andy Roddick was to play Czech Tomas Berdych.
