Frenchman Tsonga knocks Federer out of Wimbledon

Tennis history was made yesterday when Frenchman Tsonga beat six times Wimbledon champion on Centre Court.
In a pre match interview Tsonga had said what happens when you chase a chicken? It runs away. What happens when you chase a lion? It roars and chases you and he said he was a lion. Oh no no we all thought this is Federer the unbeatable at Wimbleon, but Jo-Wilfried showed he is a lion!
A spectacular match, made all the more exciting as Federer was two sets up before Tsonga fought his way back to victory.
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga was born in Le Mans in 1985, to a French mother and a Congolese father. Le Mans is one of the towns you drive through or past if you are making your way from the channel ports at Calais/Bolougne to the Vendee on the west coast of France. Tsonga now lives in Switzerland.
