08:30 – Federer v Tsonga
Rankings are 1 and 10. Head to heads are 1-1. Tsonga won their last match.
Federer started very slowly in his Quarter final. He came to life part way through the second set and played the sort of tennis we take for granted from him.
Tsonga’s Quarter final with Djokovic was great to watch. The Frenchman is very entertaining when he’s in form and he was certainly in form this morning. If he can maintain that form Feder isn’t going to have an easy ride.
In my opinion Federer’s price of 1.19 is crazy. Laying him from the start has to be a good option. Very little downside if he gets an early break but I am sure he will trade higher than that during the match.
Federer is obviously a big favourite to win but I dont think it will be in straight sets.
Update: Federer was in a completely different class to his opponent. Tsonga was made to look very ordinary and was never in the match.
Fed won 6-2, 6-3, 6,2.
