Jo-Wilfried Tsonga isn’t the best at speaking the English but that doesn’t mean he isn’t a good quote. Earlier today the Frenchman was asked what he thought about the Top 4 in men’s tennis and why they continue to dominate. A simple question that produced a simple, succinct response.
“In tennis, you know, you cannot lie,” said Tsonga. “You cannot lie. If they are No. 1, No. 2, No. 3, No. 4, it’s because they deserve it and because they are the best players at the moment. That’s it.”
The follow-up to that was why the women can’t do the same. And this when Tsonga truly shines.
“You know, the girls, they are more unstable emotionally than us,” he said. “I’m sure everybody will say it’s true, even the girls. No? No, you don’t think? But, I mean, it’s just about hormones and all this stuff. We don’t have all these bad things, so we are physically in a good shape every time, and you are not. That’s it.”
And for Tsonga, that is truly it! The former Australian Open finalist lost Wednesday night in the Melbourne finals in five sets to Roger Federer.
