Default Tsonga: "winning against djokovic means less than winning against Federer or Nadal"

Tsonga said in his pre match interview against djokovic (not knowing yet that djokovic would retire) that djokovic doesn't have the same aura as Fed or Nadal. He added that winning against him means less than winning against Fed or Nadal.

the interview in french: http://www.20minutes.fr/article/8214...-nadal-federer

Tsonga

Agree? Disagree?

yeah, i heard that

in point of fact, that's the real reason djokovic quit when he had to face tsonga. he got intimidated by him and thought to himself 'screw this crap, can't beat this big guy. i'm out'.

like somebody else said, he really is muhammad ali

that's a fine point you make. Djokovic is going to be scared shitless in WTF with all these big names around, not ready to bend over for him

The title of the article is "Djokovic n'a pas encore la même aura que Nadal ou Federer" so that means: "Djokovic does not yet have the same aura as Nadal or Federer.

I'm guessing that what Tsonga means is that Djokovic is having a fantastic 2011 with a lot to defend next year when he'll be the main one with a giant bull's eye on his back so once he can prove he can handle that sort of pressure of being the chased top man, he'll have a similar aura as Roger or Rafa who have had great seasons and backed it up nicely in the following years.

this is a prime example of how thing get taken out of context Federer and Rafa have been dominating FOR YEARS novak dominated FOR A YEAR so as great as it is to beat/play him in 2011 - it'll be a couple of seasons before he amasses similar aura's!

too sensible.

what you failed to mention was that tsonga pulled his dick out, pissed on a photo of Novak while he was saying it and then called Dijana a whore.

Thanks for the proper translation, but Djokovic fans will bust their nut over this anyway

As usual, Tsonga should have kept his mouth shut.

It is impossible for people in any kind of spotlight, to sufficiently keep their mouths shut, because the press will always come up with the goods.

After all, it's understandable - they do it for living.

Well it certainly means more than the opinion of some random MTF clown.
