Tsonga Demolishes Federer. Djokovic next?

Jo Wilfired Tsonga left a stunned Roger Federer wondering where it all went wrong in SW19 today, with the French man causing a bit of a centre court upset by sending the “Fed Express” home without a Grand Slam title in his pocket. Tsonga won convincingly 3-6, 6-7 (3-7), 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 in what turned out to be an epic tennis battle on Centre Court in sunny Wimbledon.

Federer was leading 2 sets to 1 early on – then Tsonga seemed to wake up with an unbreakable serve in the 4th set. Federer seemsd baffled. If Tsonga wasn’t delivering an ace or a non-returnable serve, Federer seemed to always botch his returns or hit the net.

10:25: The Tsonga-Federer match continues to astound. He is up 3-1 in the fourth set and is dominating Federer. He aced for the final point in the game but has moved the six-time champion all over the court. Federer’s serve is also failing him as Tsonga broke him in the last game.

Next to play Tsonga is Novak Djokovic, in what promises to be a massive game from the French Man. With Rafael Nadal’s foot injury this week – is it unreasonable that tennis fans can expect a final with Andy Murray vs Tsonga or Djokovic? One of the big four has now left the court – will Tsonga take down a 2011 Wimbledon Grand Slam title? We wouldn’t bet against him!
