Will Tsonga win a Grand Slam

My first thread & Post on this forum. I want to talk about my favourite player, Jo Wilfried Tsonga.

Do you think he can or will win a Grand Slam in his career?

Re: Will Tsonga win a Grand Slam

You have an awesome favorite player, welcome to the forum! And allez Jo

Can't say for sure, but I think he can. He's been improving a lot and is still pretty young (27yo, but only 320 matches on tour) and should have more chances. If he keeps improving his backhand and making strides in other parts of his game, I think he could.

I hope he will, Jo winning a Slam would be awesome for tennis

His best chance would be at Wimbledon in a very rainy second week. His tennis is awesome in the first week but suffers in the second week due to the grass turning into clay; under the roof, though, he'd be very tough to beat. Even outdoors, he has a chance. USO, he should have a few chances too.

Re: Will Tsonga win a Grand Slam

he has to believe that is possible first and then go for it
sadly when reading his interviews it seems he is missing the first part, so no

Re: Will Tsonga win a Grand Slam

first of all, welcome to the forum. to answer your question, I doubt it, but you never know. He might def. one of the top 3 guys + Murray but to go all the way ... don't think so. He is not consistent enough, and he is prone to make some silly UE at big points. what I mean is that you'll see him hitting some great winners followed by some strange UE. but again, never say never ... everything is possible .

another problem is, as nadejda said, not sure there is enough self belief. same thing with Murray and everyone else on the tour not called Djokovic, Federer or Nadal.

I'm inclined to say no, unfortunately.

Re: Will Tsonga win a Grand Slam

If the right circumstances come along, he can win. And of course if he keeps this level of play and energy.. so far he's doing very well , last year at the wimbledon he kicked out federer before SF and he had someone else but Novak who knows what could have happened. . he really deserves his no5 spot

Re: Will Tsonga win a Grand Slam

Welcome to the forum!
Tsonga is a player with huge capacity, his challenge in winning a slam will be to play well seven matches in a row. Or at least play well the entire second week. Can he do it? I believe he can. He has several opportunities to do so, only RG seems unlikely. Could happen anywhere else if things align for him. He has multiple wins over all the top players. And with no signs of the ones born in the 90s being ready to take over, a couple of more experienced players could easily pick up slams as the top three eventually dominate less.

Re: Will Tsonga win a Grand Slam

I really like him a lot and hope he can, I think the Us or Wimbledon would be his best chance.
