Default Tsonga eyes first grand slam

After an early loss in the second
round of the Paris Masters against
the hands Kei Nishikori, Jo-
Wilfried Tsonga was unable to
qualify for World Tour Finals on
London.
But the 2008 Australian Open
finalist is looking for a fresh start
of the season and believes he can
win a Grand Slam this season.
“Yes, I still believe I can win the
Slams. Otherwise I will not be
here competing with the big
guys,” Tsonga told reports.
The Frenchman quoted Murray as
an example who lost four Grand
slam finals before winning the
2012 US Open, “Yes, he proved
that if you want to achieve
something badly, you will
eventually be able to achieve that.
Impossible is nothing. I am very
passionate about lifting my first
Slam title."
The world number ten has been
drawn to face Wimbledon
Champion Andy Murray on the
opening day of the Mubadala
World Tennis Championship
exhibition event this week.
“My first match will be
interesting. Andy is also making
comeback. So we don’t know
what to expect. But it will give us
a good idea about where we are
physically. Hopefully I can play
well.”
Tsonga ended the season with just
one title in his bag, but he
managed to reach the semifinal at
Roland Gross this year.
“Yeah it was my first semi-final
at my home Grand Slam. It’s was
nice to prove people wrong. After
all, many thought I couldn’t play
on clay. But I showed I can play
pretty good clay court tennis!”

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

Good luck with that. Though he turns 29 next year and isn't exactly getting younger, obviously.

Lol, atleast Querrey was realistic, and Querrey probably has a better chance to beat Djokovic at AO then tsonga.
Things have changed considerably since tsonga made the final in 2008, big 3 have matured!

Quite ridiculous that France has only had 1 male Grand Slam winner in the Open Era.

Indeed. A country where sports in general are very important with so many tennis infrstructures (clay especially) but with little to no significant result in such a long time is quite a mystery.

He has a chance at Wimbledon 2014 due to lack of competition on grass. That tournament will probably be his last chance of finishing his career as a Grand Slam champion.

Some self-belief from a top player at last . Seems like a needle in a haystack in men's tennis .
