Novak Djokovic vs Jo-Wilfried Tsonga: Live Score and Updates


After a long time, tennis world is going to a grand slam men’s final without Roger Federer in the Australian Open 2008 men’s singles final. In the last few years, it became a rule that Federer was there whenever it came to a grand slam final. However, the Serbian Novak Djokovic was confident to present a grand slam final without Roger Federer. Rafael Nadal was earlier crushed out of tournament being defeated to unseeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the first semi final of Australian Open.

Now, Novak Djokovic vs Jo-Wilfried Tsonga final is the center of all attention in the tennis world along with women’s final between Maria Sharapova vs Ana Ivanovic.. Among the four finalists only Maria Sharapova has grand slam title in singles. So, it seems that Australian Open 2008 will be remembered for introducing some of the starlets of the tennis world.

Novak Djokovic will definitely be considered as hot favorite against Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the final of the tournament. The third seed is now, for sure, flying in full swing after the breakthrough victory against Roger Federer. Djokovic was the runner up of U.S. Open 2008, which was the first ever grand slam tournament for the Serbian. Actually, it was really very important for Djokovic to prove his worth and he could not find any bigger stage to show what he has in him or what he deserves. In the post-match reaction, Novak Djokovic seemed to be one of the happiest men in the world.

Times Online reported:

"It's amazing, an indescribable feeling to beat the No1 player of the world, probably one of the best players this sport has ever had, in straight sets," Djokovic said.

"I'm very, very proud of myself. I was feeling in control from the first moment and I tried to keep positive thoughts in my head all the time and not to have so many ups and downs in my game, which I did in our past matches.

"I'm just so amazed at how well I coped with the pressure, in the most important moments I played my best tennis."

While Djokovic is favorite to most of the people, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga must be inspired to make his presence felt in the final, what he has been doing in all previous round matches. He has become the first person after Kuerten to reach the first ATP final in a grand slam tournament. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga started Australian Open 2008 as the world no. 38 in the ranking.

So, it is easily understandable that he is now in a dream run which he started beating ninth seed Andy Murray in the first round of the tournament. After defeating world no. 2 Rafael Nadal in three-set match in semi final, he revealed his

Canada.com reported:

"Today I played the match that everyone dreams of all their life," said Tsonga, who even dwarfed Nadal's considerable presence in the interview room in his tight, fitted T-shirt, bulging biceps, huge right forearm, million-dollar smile and diamond stud earrings.

"The moment when you feel you just can't miss, you put more energy into the ball, more power. And I still wasn't making mistakes, so I hit even harder," he said. "I sort of sensed he was thinking,"Who is this guy who's sending me all this stuff from everywhere on the court?

"Tonight I really felt untouchable," he said.

Tsonga made himself untouchable to everyone whoever he faced this tournament so far. He has not left any stone unturned to show his skill and talent in Australian Open 2008. With his similarity with Muhammad Ali, he was called Muhammad Ali of tennis. Novak Djokovic must have the better performance in his professional career than Tsonga. However, the way this French has been playing seems something special. So, Djokovic can not expect any less resistance from Tsonga than what he faced against Federer.

I think, Djokovic and Tsonga have already brought out a huge change in men’s tennis with their performance in Australian Open 2008. People were used to see Federer-Nadal final. Now, after blowing off the no.1 and 2, it has been the responsibility of Djokovic and Tsonga to present with a classic final of dramatic Australian Open 2008 tournament.
