Re: "Have it yours" The chichat thread of the jojotards

a spectator took a tumble down the stairs. the paramedics came. the match is currently suspended. both players are sitting and waiting.
the score is 5-4 Kendrick. Jo will serve for the 10. game (40-30) when play resumes.
I am off to bed.
Good luck Jo!
and hopefully noone was hurt.

Re: "Have it yours" The chichat thread of the jojotards

Re: "Have it yours" The chichat thread of the jojotards

I hate how quiet it is in this forum I mean, Jo is one of the nicest players on tour (and one of the most successfull this year so far), but still it's so quiet!!

I was thinking the other day, do we know what kind of music Jo likes? Who are his fav artists?

Re: "Have it yours" The chichat thread of the jojotards

I would be happy to talk about Jo, about Jo's favorite things and about his plans, but I know nothing about it, because all news I get from here
I am "absolute zero" in French, if you know what I mean. And English part of Internet is not very lavish with news about Jo.

Re: "Have it yours" The chichat thread of the jojotards

Oh I know! I'd love to talk about Jo 24/7 but the truth is, I don't know that much about him. Quite embarassing because he is definitely one of my fav players So shame on me. I guess some of the Frenchies around here could tell us loads about him... *hinthint*

Re: "Have it yours" The chichat thread of the jojotards

Tsonga and fellow tennis player Gaël Monfils would practice together and spend hours trying to develop a serve like Andy Roddick's.
Both of Tsonga's parents now work as teachers in France. Tsonga also has an older sister, Sasha, and a younger brother, Enzo, who is a part of the French junior basketball program.
Players on the ATP circuit have nicknamed Tsonga "the Muhammad Ali of Tennis" due to his striking resemblance to Muhammad Ali, who is one of his heroes. Tsonga is coached by compatriot Éric Winogradsky.


From wiki, knew most of that anyway

Re: "Have it yours" The chichat thread of the jojotards

Yeah that's the basis of it I think. His father is from the Congo. Apparently Jo suffered from racism back in Africa because they found it hard to accept his mixed-race heritage. They didn't like the fact he had a white Mam which is horrible. Poor Jo

Re: "Have it yours" The chichat thread of the jojotards

What do you want to know ?

I have no idea about his musics taste, I only know that Gilles once said that himself, Jo and Gaël all had as far different music tastes as possible so, no rap imo.

He's from a sporting family. His brother plays in the French basketball team, his father was an international handballer and his grand father who was a famous volleyball player invented the smash serve He also has a cousin who plays football, Charles N'Zogbia.

Re: "Have it yours" The chichat thread of the jojotards

Xavier, she never said that. But it seems he got problems when he first went to Congo, people talking about why he wasn't playing for Congo instead of France.
Being of mixed-race can sometimes be even worse than being white there.
