Tsonga and Serena Rockin' The House In Round 2

Wednesday, January 16, 2008

Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has come to Australia to play! Tsonga fired off 14 aces, as he moved through round 2 with ease and flair while defeating American Sam Warburg 6-4, 7-6 (7/4), 6-2. There hasn't been much commentary about Tsonga going into the Australian Open, but he just may be the second week surprise this year.

Tsonga will meet Guillermo Garcia-Lopez in round 3.

Tsonga spent some time off court with members of the Australian Kangaroos Football team.

American Serena Williams had her hands full with Meng Yuan of China. That modest sized woman can with every intention of moving on to the third round. Yuan came through the qualifying rounds, but you would never have known it. Yuan played as well as any of the seeded players that we've seen thus far, and had she not have been playing someone with the skills of Serena Williams, we'd be seeing her in round 3. Unfortunately for her, she did run into Serena and was defeated 6-3, 6-1. That score may sound like it was a walk in the park for Serena, but it wasn't, she had to break out the big guns to take Yaun out. But post match she said "it was fun!"

Serena will meet Victoria Azarenka for her round 3 opponent.
