Re: Abu Dhabi SF : Novak Djokovic vs. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga played really well today, serving great and playing aggresive with the forehand and the volley. The speed surface suits more his game than Djokovic's one but I think that the level of tennis and the experience of Djokovic will prevail. I always have the same sensation when talking about Djokovic, no matter how disturbing an opponent can be because Djokovic will find the way to win. However, I think that it won't be a routine win. I bet for Djokovic in three sets.

Kenny de Schepper fact of the month (January 2015): never lost a match against the Big 4 (Federer, Nadal, Djokovic and Murray), something that can't be told by none of the TOP 30 players of the year-end 2014 ATP rankings.
"Matches are won and lost so many times in the locker room. Guys get in their mind how strong he is the warm-ups and that they will have to endure four hours of that to beat him: they are beaten even before they step on court. But that's why I like him. He basically says you are going to have to kill me to beat me." Lleyton Hewitt about Rafael Nadal
