Anyone else think Tsonga's dad was just as cool as him?

I was cracking up after Tsonga hit that amazing lob to take the first set and his dad was doing the Ali punches and getting fired up. He seems like a great guy and a proud parent.

I love tennis because of...

Andre Agassi (always #1)---Novak Djokovic ---Rafa Nadal---
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga---Gilles Simon---Tomas Berdych---David Nalbandian---Nico Almagro

He was AWESOME! HE looks more like Ali than his son, I think.

They appear to be cool parents and its clear Jo was well brought up.I kinda like his father jabbing like that so refreshing much better than looking at Joko's mum.

I can't imagine what would be being said if it had been Nole's father that did that.

He seems to have great parents, no wonder he's such a great guy. Reminded me of Sampras father at Wimbledon.

Excuse me, but are we gonna have thread about EVERY member of his family or will we spare grandparents for example?

You play only as good, as your opponent lets you to

You see. We're just bigots that way. We LOOOOVE black people but aren't too keen on the Serbs.
