In the interview from Le Parisien I just posted ("Les grosses boules… J’ai quitté Roland avec les larmes aux yeux et je n’ai pas regardé de tennis pendant dix à douze jours. Moi qui me disais que j’allais tout faire péter à Wimbledon...")

Re: News & articles

ok as promise. I translated the article from chinese from this site. My chinese is not perfect (neither is my English ). Please forgive me if you see something wrong.


Quote:
Tsonga: This season is "a beautiful life"

Considered to be the leading new generation of French Players, Tsonga and Simon are close buddies. For this pair of French brothers, the Masters Cup and Shanghai are foreign to them. So when these two pushed their luggages out of the airport and see all the zealous Shanghai fans, surprise and shyness became their first reactions. Tsonga readjusted his hat and Simon quickened his pace.

The bold and ferocious on-court Tsonga, which earned him the nickname "Ali", built on his early and late season strong performance, qualified for the master cup.

At the beginning of the season in the Australian Open, Tsonga went all the way to the final but lost to Djokovic. Then knee injury become his nightmare.

French "Ali" had to give up the French Open and the Olympics. This made Tsonga, who has always wanted to
win honors for France, melancholy.

Season's end, Tsonga once again surprise everyone, winning the Paris Masters tournament to aid him to qualify the TMC. Regarding this long but full of ups and downs season, the naturally romantic frenchman summed it up with a smile: "I can use a name of one movie to describe my bumpy season--<<La Vie Est Belle>>".

After learning that he will be in a group with djokovic, del potro, and davydenko, tsonga spoke frankly that the opponents are not important: "I'm in good health, no injuries. That's the happiest thing for me. I am already preparing for next season and the Master cup is my best opportunity for practice."

Of course, the Master cup is also a place for Tsonga to realize his dreams. "I regret not participating the French Open and Olympics. I dream of winning for France. On the plane, I chatted with Simon about the ambient of the Olympic games. Luckily, there is still the Masters cup for me to realize me dream. To me, not only the cup has its allure, China and Shanghai also have their unique attractiveness.

Re: News & articles

Here are the jo little interview about his match today(translated by me from eurosport.fr)

"Ive traveled a lot"

question: How do you analyze your match today?

JWT: I dont think I played bad, I even feel like I played quite a good match. But he was very tough today.I didnt expect that he would play that well.
He has all the credit for this, he deserved to win.He returned at 30 cm from the line.He gave me just 3 or 4 balls during the match,he had been offensif and served well. There were some long and tough rallies and he was perhaps fresher than me at the end of the match.

question: what did bother the most in his game?

jo: he takes the ball very early,he didnt let me breathe and install my big ground strokes from the baseline. He change very often the direction of the ball and find some amazing angles. Its not easy to ajust your game.When he plays like that, you travel a lot, from left to right,rihgt,left,right.

question: how do you see your next match against Juan Martin Del Potro?

jo: it will be a psychological fight.We both lost our first match there.The one who will be the more solid in his head will prevail.He has a quite complet game.I ll have to be agressive and hold on. He had a quite movementing ending year,he played a lot and has also have to play davis cup next week.If I can put him under big pressure since the beggining of the match,he could fall down. He is a very precocious man who spanked so many guys on the tour.
