Tsonga comeback stuns Federer at Wimbledon.


France’s Jo-Wilfried Tsonga produced a great performance to beat 16 times major champion Roger Federer in the quarter-finals of Wimbledon on Wednesday.

Despite getting off to the perfect start by taking the first two sets, the Swiss third seed was unable to hold on to his lead and conceded the third in what was the beginning of an almighty fight back from Tsonga.

The Frenchman then kept his composure to break again in the decider before closing out the match 3-6, 6-7, 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 after three dramatic hours of play.

Elsewhere, defending champion Rafael Nadal also progressed after defeating American 10th seed Mardy Fish in four sets 6-3, 6-3, 5-7, 6-4.

Tsonga will next lock horns with Serbia’s Novak Djokovic while Britain’s Andy Murray will face Rafael Nadal after beating Feliciano Lopez in straight sets.
