His movement is completely surreal, I haven't seen anything like it before.

I do think that Rafa made him look a bit better than he is though.

Amazing.

I honestly thought his backhand wouldn't hold out and nerves would get to him. I was wrong.

Rafa really needs a plan B... he looked clueless today.

Tsonga lives up the street from me, i guess with his new-found fame and money, he'll be moving uptown soon!

That was incredible, I can't believe it Nadal didn't just lose, he got slaghtered. Respect to Tsonga, but I'm not happy about it.

Whether I want him to win the tournament or not depends entirely on who he's playing. If it's Federer, I want him to win, if it's Djokovic, then he's going down!!!

Rafael Nadal.

That drop volley he made at 4-3 was just amazing.

Re: Tsonga destroys (2)Nadal 6-2 6-3 6-2 to reach his 1st Grand Slam Final

That match went exactly the way I expected it to.

Tsonga is was full speed ahead. Rafa did as well as ANYONE would have done against that. Jo would have beaten just about anyone playing that way. That's how he got this far to start with. Just ask Murray, Gasquet, and Youzhny. As it seems to happen every year now at the AO, it's just his time. All the little things in the match pointed to that, especially those lucky net cords. And it seemed at a certain point that Rafa knew that and made peace with it. Never any shame in losing to a player like that. Congrats to him.

And Congrats to Rafa. He didn't play badly, at least not until the end. Very few errors. It just wasn't meant to be. And he made his first ever Hard Court GS SF. Nothing can take that away from him. He's had his best ever start to a season. I really hope it continues.

Good luck to whoever plays Tsonga in the Final. If he plays like that, or anything close, they're gonna need it.

However, we'll see if Tsonga breaks the trend of the AO breakout player who goes on to lose in the Final, does next to nothing the rest of the season, and can't follow it up at the AO the following year.

Never miss an opportunity to make others happy, even if you have to leave them alone in order to do it.

Re: Tsonga destroys (2)Nadal 6-2 6-3 6-2 to reach his 1st Grand Slam Final

I was going to sleep but decided to watch the whole match. Tsonga was amazing. His angle drop shots . He used to be all over the place with his shots but has improved tremendously. I am impressed with how he was facing break point but held his composure and served to win the game. He DEMOLISHED Rafa today. All Nadal could do was hit moonballs hoping to for Tsonga to make the mistake but Jo just smashed the ball for the winner. So let's see...Fed reached SF and Rafa didn't win AO.

Wimbledon Upsets:
Safin def. Djokovic 6-4, 7-6, 6-2
Schuettler def. Blake 6-3, 6-7, 4-6, 6-4, 6-4
Kudryavtseva def. Sharapova 6-2, 6-4
Tipsarevic def. Roddick 6-7, 7-5, 6-4, 7-6
Dancevic def. Nalbandian 6-4, 6-2, 6-4
Zheng def. Ivanovic 6-1, 6-4
Tanasugarn def. Jankovic 6-3, 6-2
Radwanska def. Kuznetsova 6-4, 1-6, 7-5

Doesnt that remind you of someone who also had too much shot selections (roger)...
no, that reminds me of gonzalez 07 and baghdatis 06. aussie open are crazy, we should know that by now.
