Tsonga is 6th...

Tsonga became the sixth player to reach his first ATP final in a Grand Slam in the Open Era (I didn't count the players who had started career before the Era):

1) Mark Edmondson (Australia) - Australian Open 1976 - winner
2) John Sadri (USA) - Australian Open 1979 - finalist
3) Steve Denton (USA) - Australian Open 1981 - finalist
4) Mikael Pernfors (Sweden) - Roland Garros 1986 - finalist
5) Gustavo Kuerten (Brazil) - Roland Garros 1997 - winner
6) Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (France) - Australian Open 2008 - ?

Funny that this guy was playing challengers literally a year ago.

Can't believe Guccione took him to 3 sets in a challenger just 6 months ago.

No wonder the Aussie and French Opens are the ugly stepsisters to Wimbledon and USO, they attract all the flukes.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: Tsonga is 6th...

Damn. I've never played tennis before. Maybe I can contend for the US Open final.

Thank you for the stats (as usual), Voo.

Tsonga looks so happy- great moment for him.

This is quite a big story. I just hope he doesn't lose steam in the final
