Tsonga Wins Roger's Cup

Title number #80 still eludes the GOAT as he was comfortably beaten by Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 7-5 7-6(3) in the Roger’s Cup Final yesterday afternoon. No complaints from me as he put in a shocker of a performance from start to finish and it was only clutch serving + god like volleys that made the scoreline relatively close. The loss sees ...
