I think this Frenchman deserves a topic of his own. Looking at his progress reminds me of Murray in 2006 so I do feel that he will be top-10 by the end of 2009.

Tsonga didn't fail to show his qualities...Although Im disappointed with Andy's loss , I really have to agree he's a fantastic player and he'll make it to the top.

If he plays like he did against Andy, more consistently, I think he could be top 15, if not top 20 by the end of the year.

Top-20 is almost a certainty by the end of this year...

I watched him play today and he will give Gasquet a good game. I think he will be top 10 by the end of the year.

What a run so far. 4th round! Hopefully Richard will win this one though. Smile

Tsonga all the way! I said top-10 by the end of 2009 but that was my safe bet. Now I think he could do it this year.

No way will he be top 10 by the end of this year, he's just taken advantage of the very easy draw Andy would have had.

He just beat Gasquet so I would beg to differ.

I'm going with Mark on this one. Unless its just a fluke like that Baghdatis guy.

I doubt he will finish the year inside the top 20.  It wasn't that long ago I was watching Josh Goodall push him in Queens Qualies.  Everyone has a good spell once in a while.

You could say Andy just strung together two or three good spells (and some awful spells, and missed periods in between), and that was good enough to get him into the top ten.

Baghdatis is an even better example.

So even if this is just a phase Tsonga's going through, if it lasts a couple of months that should be enough to plant him in the top 20 for a year.
