Thought Tsonga looked the business last night.Doesn't have a pretty game but its extremely solid and effective.BIG serve short backswings on his powerful groundies,nice volleys and v quick -also showed no nerves.I predict big things for this kid within 12-18 months as long as he keeps himself in shapeas hes going to be a big guy when he fills out -Becker springs to mind.
Also did anyone see Ancic's racket snap off at the handle when he went to volley,I know he chucked it but even so pretty funny!

Very very raw. The question is how long it will take him to refine his game. He could make waves very fast.. or just be another who will be a journeyman pro in the top 30-50. Kinda like Mardy Fish.

I saw Tsonga play as a Junior (not long ago), and both your views of him seem quite accurate. He is big and strong... and raw - and he does bring thoughts of Becker.

Personally, I liked the game of his friend and countryman (and frequent doubles partner in Juniors) Mathieu Montcourt better. Montcourt's game relies less on power - he plays a good all-court game, and never, ever quits on a ball. Great attitude. Hopefully, the two of them will be top ten in three or four years or so.

Raw power, and the finest of touch. Getting to the final of a GS. Thats is a lot more than many pro players can say about their whole career.

Yeah I agree, he's a raw talent but with a bit of fine tuning he will be great. Possibly a future no.1
