AO Update: Tsonga and Serena On To Round 4, Williams Sisters Continue To Cruise In Doubles

Friday, January 18, 2008

Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is truly becoming a fan favorite at this Australian Open. He's come out the last three rounds with guns blazin' and is taking no prisoners. Tsonga defeated Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 to move into round 4. Way to go Tsonga!

It is really going to be interesting to see just how far this young Frenchman can go. Who knows, perhaps this is his Marcos Baghdatis Australian Open, we'll see. In the meantime I'm just going to enjoy the show, and very affable personality of Tsonga.

Next up for Tsonga, compatriot Richard Gasquet......this is gonna be good!

American Serena Williams had a bit of a battle with her opponent Victoria Azarenka of Belarus. Of course Serena defeated Azarenka 6-3, 6-4, but Azarenka definitely had some competitive moments. Nonetheless, Serena is moving on to round 4.

Next up for Serena, Nicole Vaidisova of the Czech Republic.
