Federer lost to over powered Tsonga

As expected a tough quarter match against French man Jo-Wilfred Tsonga, but it turned out to be a bad result for Roger Federer. Match ended in 1hr 51 min with scoreline 7-5,6-3,6-3.

Jo showed gruelling power through out the match, serving good and able to hit winners with more precision. With this win Jo registered his first semi-final appearance here at Roland Garros.


Federer on the other side, serving fairly and didn’t find any chance to come back in the game after he losing the first set after 4-2 lead. A poor service game caused much damage. And Tsonga didn’t look back and registered his semi-final fight against David Ferrer who won against Robredo in other quarter final today. The fatigue of Federer at this age due to last match lasting long time against Giles Simon which went 5 sets is his a hidden reason for his loss.

“I thought he played pretty great today. In all areas he was better than me and that’s why he won. I’m pretty sad with the result. Disappointed with the way I played. My game just wasn’t working today. Things didn’t go well” – Roger Federer

Tomorrow Novak will play Tommy Haas and Rafa will play against Stan the man.
