I hoped Tsonga would come back to Queens after his successes there last year, but seems he has chosen Halle .
Agreed - yes - that is probably the reason. Plus, I understand Halle pays VERY well I remember watching Tsonga's match against Hewitt at Queens last year - it was like a breath of fresh airReally dam he was so good last year,with him doing great last year i woulda thought he would wanna come back, maybe with halle having a weaken lineup (apart from Federer) he thinks he can go further
I'm also disappointed Jo isn't going to be playing again. But if I'm being honest, I understand the reasoning behind it. Queens is quite a stale atmosphere and based around upper class and corporate types, and from what I hear Halle is a tournament appreciated by true tennis people and players. I still wouldn’t pass up the chance to see some tennis in my own country, but I can’t say I’m a fan of Queens. If I feel the lack of atmosphere, I’m sure the players do.I hoped Tsonga would come back to Queens after his successes there last year, but seems he has chosen Halle .
