Doha SF: Federer d. Tsonga 6-3, 7-6

Nice one from Fed.

8th day of July 2012: 7-time Wimbledon champion!

Once upon a time there was a myth about strong and weak eras. On this glorious day the clownery was eventually unmasked: 30 y.o. past-prime daddy Fed became #1 once again in the supposed strong "Spartan" era with his rivals at their peak.
And they all lived happily ever after.
Long live King Federer!

Abysmal breaker from Tsonga. ROS was really poor at the end of the 2nd set. G'luck in the final Fed

It really doesn't even look like Fed is trying or is interested in the matches! ….And he keeps winning!

When you consider Tsonga hasn't really played tennis for quite a while his level of play was brilliant

Fed didn't do the strategical tank to avoid Nadal... again! CD might be surprised.

Tsonga played ok but his ROS was just awful..

Fed was solid today, but nothing special at all. In the second set Tsonga played his heart out but Federer didn't really seem to care much and seized the breaker easily anyway.

Bah Tsonga did better than expected.

Hopefully will be ready for AO though, he really was struggling at the end. I arrived at 3-3 in the second and didn't see him win a single point on return.

He won only 7 points on Roger's serve throughout the whole match!

Apart from the fact that JW wasn't able to put a return in it was o.k. I guess.
