Fed Express sent packing

5 Jun

One of a multitude of winners that Jo-Wilfried Tsonga fired down in his straight-sets win over 2009 champion Roger Federer on Tuesday.Not this year...No hard feelingsPacking up

A rampant Jo-Wilfried Tsonga sent Swiss superstar Roger Federer on his way at the French Open

With the crowd chanting Jo-Wee Jo-Wee, French #1 and tournament 6th seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga moved one step closer to a French fairy tale with a demolition job on none other than 17 time Grand Slam champion, Roger Federer. It was one way traffic as Tsonga served with great accuracy, moved like the athlete he is, and generally controlled the tempo of the match against his good friend.

Tsonga was good today – so good in fact that Federer, as always generous in praise for his opponent following a defeat said that “Jo-Willy played great today – he was better than me in all areas of play”.  Tsonga’s Aussie coach Roger Rasheed could not be happier with the passion and intensity his charge is showing and there is a growing sense that Rasheed may just get Tsonga to realise his Grand Slam dream.

The win puts Tsonga through to the semi finals for the first time at Roland Garros where he will meet Spanish ball machine David Ferrer.
