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!
