It is so over the top I hardly can believe it is actually true. It is in swedish but I will translate it to english.

Here are some of the things he says:

"He is the greatest player in the world. I have never seen anyone play better than he did"



"He has only faced great opponents all the time and played incredibly good. I believed on him even against Nadal. He played flawless and destroyed the spaniard. Every shot he made in the match was perfect"

"Tsonga played incredible tennis and read NAdal completely. At the same time it is because it is so easy to read Nadal when the balls are heavy"

"It is his 5th grand slam. He hasnt sat in the locker room listening to stories about Federer and Nadal, he is completely unafraid. He doesnt care about who they are"


Answering if this could be a onetime wonder:

"No, he is this good. I was completely stunned after the match. I have been waiting for someone who plays like this"

"He is incredibly strong on his serve. He is also a tactical player with a steady and heavy baseline game"

"He is top 3 right now. If he stays healthy for the rest of the season he will be ranked top 5 at the end of this year"

Question about his chanses against Federer:

"Tsonga has better physics, tactics and technique than Federer. Federer has history and that counts. But without history Tsonga is better. I hope he can face Federer to meassure how good he is"

Was Mats drunk again? He tends to imbibe and then make pronouncements.

I like Tsonga- and hope the overpraise stops. Praise is due, and if he plays up to his potential fairly consistently- he could be a great presence in the top levels of the sport.

But don't overhype and overload the guy already. It will just create people wanting him to fail- cause that's how these things go.

HA. tennis players have opinions like everyone else.

of course if he'd said something people here agree with, e.g. Roger is the greatest ever, I will **** his **** any day of the week,

everyone here would say see? Wilander who's a pro says this, then other people who have never even played pro tennis have no right to question Roger.

But of course now he's on drugs.

just shows you that tennis idiocy is not just restricted to MTF :yeah:

wow.

thing is, history is what matters, maybe the best player in the world is some unknown guy who played 1 unbelievable match in his life at a level tha no one will ever reach, but if he doesn't do it again, it's kind of flukey.

i do believe that Jo has a huge potential, it has been frustrating to follow him these past years will all the injuries and all whereas you could just feel like he could do great.

hopefully he keeps it up so he can really compete to get a spot in the best players list.

allez.:hearts:

Btw, the next person that brings up what a tennis player has said as supposed proof as to why Federer or anyone else is GOAT gets a virtual bitchslap from me.
