WIMBLEDON: Divemaster Tsonga pulls off upset of his career... Smiles his way past Federer

Before the match, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga said:

"I have the chance to play a game that will be engraved in my life. If I beat Federer on Wimbledon Centre Court it will count as a match in my career."

And then he walked on the court the next day and did it! After he trailed two sets to love nonetheless. What exactly do we call that? Rising to the occasion? That's just trivial compared to what he did. Sky-rocketing to perfection? Nah too blah! Gladiating performance? Federer was no lion in the last three sets...

Words are failing me at the moment. For now, enjoy the Frenchman's post-match interview above.

Keep on smiling, Jo!

Over 3 decades ago, K-Swiss endorsed their first athlete, tennis phenom, Joey Yates. At the apex of his career, the southern Californian vanished into self-imposed exile days before the 1984 Summer Olympics. Now, almost 30 years later, K-Swiss will finally complete development of the Joey Yates footwear and apparel collection. If you haven't heard, Americana is in, and so is Joey Yates.
