Tsonga Begins 2009 Right Where He Left 2008...Winning!

Tuesday, January 6, 2009

The hard charging Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and his newly close cropped doo brought the pain to Argentine Agustin Calleri today during the first round of the Australian Open Series at the Brisbane International. Tsonga defeated Calleri 6-2, 7-5.

Post match, after learning that the no. 1 seed, Serbian Novak Djokovic, had been beaten by Latvian Ernests Gulbis, Tsonga wasn't very surprised. “For me it was not really a surprise. He is going to be the man who is going to make a surprise this year,” Tsonga said.

“Every match he played better and better. For me it was not a surprise to see this result.”

As one who seems to have a bit of Djokovic's number, Gulbis should take this compliment from Tsonga to heart.
