Unseeded and in Finals of a grand slam

earlier today I watched the first semifinals of the Australian Open between Rafael Nadal and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Yeap...some of us might be asking ourselves who the hell is this Tsonga dude. And i think quite a number of people must be thinking that this is a great opportunity to make easy money by betting against Tsonga not to win. I mean what are the odds of a player of his standard coming into the grand slam unseeded and up against the no 2 player in the world? Its got to be Nadal's way.

But not that I don't like Nadal, but i was hoping of an upset in this match. And boy it was not just an upset. As Vijay Amritraj said 'Nadal was playing like an amateur between those two professional tennis players' and he was dead right. Not that Nadal did not play well...the match definitely belonged to Tsonga. Tosnga strolled past Nadal is straight sets...6-2 6-3 6-2.He played exceptionally fantastic and if he could play that kind of tennis just one more time even Federer will lose playing against him..that is if he could beat Novak Djokovic tomorrow.

Another great match is scheduled tomorrow. Roger Federer (1) vs Novak Djokovic (3). I think it could go either way tomorrow. But Federer is definitely more experienced. But for the benefit of tennis I would like to see Djokovic go through.

Here's a look at the MAN OF THE MOMENT....
