Can't Win 'Em All Tsonga

Monday, November 10, 2008

Oh my...Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga was a tad po'd at the ball kids for his opening loss at the Masters Cup. Tsonga's catching a bit of flack and being called a "debutante" for getting frustrated at the towel service today.

Tsonga said that he "lost energy" waiting for ball kids to bring him his towel between points as he was defeated by Nikolay Davydenko in three sets, 6-7(6), 6-4, 7-6(0).

"When I ask for my towel, my towel didn't come, when I ask for a ball, the ball didn't come. That's it."

"You are here and you want your towel. You say one time, two times, three times, and then you ask the other guy," said Tsonga. "The other guy looks around, so you have to say one time, two times, three times, and the towel comes."

Tsonga claimed that he paced an extra kilometre going for his towels. "Sometimes I have to take my towel alone. So for me it's maybe 10 meters more. But if you count at the end of the match, it's like one kilometre."

Well, quite frankly I think it's a refreshing excuse, most of the players blame the racquet as they beat it to death. I'm glad to see him try something new...BWAAAAHAHAHAHA!!
