Tsonga Def. Nadal 6-2 6-3 6-2

I hope you dont mind me using caps, but I just wanna hammer home what the Eurosport commentators have been screaming for the last week:

"TSONGA IS THE NEXT BIG THING!"

Now, only fed stands in his way of a Grand Slams

Your thoughts guys!!!

May I add;

"BRILLIANT PERFORMANCE FROM TSONGA. HE OUTPLAYED NADAL FROM START TO FINISH. THE SPANIARD HAD NO ANSWER, AND GOT PUMMELLED OUT OF THE MATCH WITH FOREHANDS WINNERS, TANTALISING DROP SHOPS, AND JUST SUPERB SHOT SELECTIONS. AT ONE POINT, THE BRITISH EUROSPORT COMMENTATORS SAID HE WAS MISSING BECAUSE HE HAD TOO MUCH SHOT SELECTION. THEY HERALDED HIM AS "THE NEXT GENERATION". ENOUGH SAID!"

Doesnt that remind you of someone who also had too much shot selections (roger)...

AO SF: Tsonga manhandles Nadal 6-2 6-3 6-2

Wow. Awesome stuff from Tsonga. I mean those drop volleys were sensational. And some rally shots were gasp worthy.

There were times where it looked like Tsonga would tighten up, but thank god he didn't.


Good luck vs Roger/Djoko though, Hope he doesn't become a one Slam wonder.

Humiliating.

Absolute beatdown.

I won't even make excuses that Nadal was playing badly, he's been playing too badly for too long for it to be a valid excuse. Most of his shots looked like something you'd get out of a ball machine and Tsonga gave them what they deserved. Well done to him.

Routined.

2 3 and 2.

Incredible performance from Tsonga.

Except not really incredible.

He played very well but he never even allowed Nadal to put him under much pressure. Nadal never really found any way to test Tsonga's nerves out there.

His movement is completely surreal, I haven't seen anything like it before.

I do think that Rafa made him look a bit better than he is though.

Amazing.

I honestly thought his backhand wouldn't hold out and nerves would get to him. I was wrong.

Rafa really needs a plan B... he looked clueless today.
