Tsonga is a really good player, it it weren't for his lack of fitness and injuries I could see him in top 50 easily.

He hasnt really dtruggled that much. He has made it to at least the quarters at every tournament this year other than the Aussie Open were it was R16.

Of course a couple of his defeats have been a bit disappointing (Guiccone, Soderling) but its not like hes having a terrible year.

It's pre-Wimbledon already?

lol at "expedition." Playing Roger is rather like climbing a mountain.

i think the biggest shock is gonzalez making the finals of the Australian Open. not that he MADE the finals, but the people he beat and the way he beat them to get there. especially his semifinals, 3 UE's?

and then his dip in form. :rolleyes:

yeah but so far this year,he has yet to beat really good players,let alone top 10 players......
