If Jowili wins, that will be tough luck for Nole. He has made it to the semifinals of the last 4, and the finals of the last 2. It's about time that he had his breakthrough win. If Tsonga were to come basically from out of nowhere and take this title it would be a little heartwrenching, especially if Nole has his chances like he did in the US Open final against Fed.
I kinda want Tsonga to take it because I am on his fanwagon now, but I will still feel bad if that happens. Unlike some people, I like Novak.
If Tsonga wins Sunday he will be #9 in the world and he'll have nothing to defend at all of the Masters Series events (except Paris where he just has 75 points to defend) and nothing to defend at the French Open.
Most of his "best of 5" points are now from challengers he has won so if he does well in Rotterdam, Dubai and Marseille (as well as the Masters series) he could potentially be as high as #4 or #5 by the start of Wimbledon.
Novak will win. I have faith. I pegged him to win from the start before I even knew the draws. He's ranked 35 places above Tsonga for a reason. I think his choke in the USO final has taught him a great lesson about keeping his nerve. He's been there before, JW hasn't. I think that will count for a hell of a lot.
I think it's fair to say JW Tsonga might win it, especially if he brings his A game, he's untouchable. However I would feel a lot for Djokovic, a VERY NICE CHAP, who has just put out of his misery a tired old federer.
