this djoker as u call him
is the best thing at the moment and the one most likely to threaten federer dominance
rafa has done all he could in the past 3 year, and should be nothing but congradulated, who else of those supposedly talented player has come close to threatening federer

tsonga simply played a dream match against rafa, cant see him doing that regularly

He doesn't have to do it regulary, he just has to do it one more time.

Tsonga could overpower Djoko if he has an 'on' day. But he'll have to play perfectly and handle the occasion... but from what we've seen today, nerves shouldn't be an issue.

Fed definatley is more of a threat to Tsonga.

Tsonga would win i think.
He has been the youngsters's killa (Gasquet,Murray,Nadal) in this AO so Djokovic wouldn't resist to him.:worship:

winner of djokovic-federer match will win AO. It's one thing beating nadal on hard court, besides quite a few players are capable of that (blake, youzhny, berdych...only to name a few), it's COMPLETELY anoter thing beating federer or djokovic in a FINAL! Tsonga had an amazing run, but sadly final is his last stop.

I don't remember Djokovic or even Federer beating Nadal so easily though,even on hardcourt.

Its well known that fed likes guys who hit through the ball and tsonga is one of those guys, only guy i've seen out hit fed on hard court is Safin and he took 5 sets to do it, plus fed had a foot injury too.
If fed makes the final he will win it, if nole makes it then tsonga has a chance.

Probably Djokovic. Djokovic's faster, he's got a little more pop on his groundstrokes and he's got a big serve. Djokovic's also been at this stage in a GS before whereas Tsonga is still an unknown quantity. Djokovic in four.

Hard to say, but I'd think it would be a long match, and that would favor whoever stays fresher. Mentally hard to call, too, as Tsonga has already exceeded many expectations, and Djokovic would feel it's his IF he has beaten Federer. On the other hand, Tsonga might feel the 'pressions' quote Nadal, or not. Anyway, hoping it doesn't come to pass. Go Roger!!!!

Tsonga would probably beat himself with nerves. Still Id say would be a tight 4 set victory for Djokovic.
But it will be a 3 set victory for Fedex which is the more likely oppenant.

Tsonga would beat all 3 Djokers at once, singing at the same time

"Clowns to the left of me,
Jokers to the right, here I am,
Stuck in the middle with you"

The clay king was ready, a title in sight
But as the world knows, it was Jo Will's night.
My forehand was lethal, my backhand sublime,
Rafa felt pressure all of the time.
He's world #2, or so they all say,
What about me, Jo Will Boma Ye!
I took his best shot with the greatest of ease,
I gave him three break points, just as a tease.
When my game is on, the legends all shudder,
Roger and Nole...better duck, run, and cover.
Let the world know the truth, Jo Will's time has come,
Forget about top ten, I am #1.

Tsonga has a big serve too even maybe bigger and he has big groundies and touch and volleys, good return too moving and intensity plus his fh is stunning way bigger than Fakervics, if he keeps up this level he should beat DJoker at least being the fav in my opinion but not easily .

of course considering he does not get nervous and tight by playing a slam final.

Both Djokovic and Federer play a different sort of game from what Tsonga has faced so far. They won't rely on steadiness and won't wait for unforced errors, like Murray, Gasquet, Youzhny and Nadal tend to do. This will also be the first time he faces a decent serve in the entire championship. We don't know how Tsonga's gonna react to this different style of play, but we do know Djokovic and Federer are by far the world's two best hardcourt players so I don't see how he's gonna win this.

I have no idea tbh. Both, Tsonga and Djokovic are playing amazing atm. If Tsonga plays against Djokovic how he did against Nadal I think he will win. Haven't seen a lot of Djokovic tbh, but he hasn't lost a set in the tournament yet. I think Djokovic will beat Federer and I hope so. I have predicted a Tsonga vs. Djokovic final since I saw them both play in like 'The last 16' or the quarter final.

Djokovic is not particularly more offensive than Murray,Gasquet or Youznhy......he just doesn't have any weaknesses contrary to those 3.

This would be a weird final, maybe even a bit lack-lustre
