Well done Jo, he has now beaten all top 4 in slams:

AO 2008 [R128] : def. Andy Murray (GBR) 7-5, 6-4, 0-6, 7-6(5)

AO 2008 [SF]: def. Rafael Nadal (ESP) 6-2, 6-3, 6-2

AO 2010 [QF] : def. Novak Djokovic (SRB) 7-6( 8 ), 6-7(5), 1-6, 6-3, 6-1

W 2011 [QF]: def. Roger Federer (SUI) 3-6, 6-7 (3), 6-4, 6-4, 6-4

Interestingly, he's got negative H2H (0-5) against Soderling winning only 1 set in those 5 meetings. :oops:

Impressive stuff from Jo Willy, has all the important scalps it seems. Great game and great character.

Thanks for the stats, Telepatic.

JMac was talking this morning about how many GS appearances Roger had v. Jo. If he hadn't had injury problems, who knows where he'd be now.

It's odd how Jo doesn't have so impressive wins and overall results on fast HC slam like USO though grass really suits his style of game.

In a time of tennis gods,
Jokers and Scots,
serve and volley cried out for help.


She was Tsonga, a mighty princess forget in the heat of Le Mans!

The aces,the volleys, the ridiculous victory dances...
Her courage will change the top 10.

I'm sure that would be amazing. I saw Jo Wil play Fernando Gonzalez here before Feña's quarters with Rafa. It was ridiculously entertaining.

I WOULD HAVE DONE TERRIBLE THINGS TO SEE THAT MATCH LIVE!! LIFE-SCARRING THINGS!!

Impressive:
Roddick has beaten 3 of top 4 but not Fed.
Fed and Nadal has beaten the remaining 3 of top 4.

I think you just qualified as King Tsonga's court jester.

It is a pity he's been injured so much and is 26 already. I remember watching him at the AO 2008 and thinking he was going to be a very dangerous player.

Djoker really needs to pick up his game from yesterday if he's gonna have a chance at Tsonga.

Was Murray top 4 at AO 2008? If not it doesn't count. Besides, half those guys he beat played average.
