The first Grand Slam of the year Australian Open 2008 has come close to the final. Melbourne Park is always famous of surprises like in 2006 it was Marcos Baghdatis who thrilled us all the way to the men's final, last year it was Fernando Gonzalez. This year the emergence of french power house - Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is the man in final against the winner between Roger Federer or Novak Djokovic.
Tsonga has really impressed me prior to this AO 2008. I saw some of this powerful play and he is the man to watch in this coming years. The giant killer outclassed Andy Murray, Richard Gasquet and Rafal Nadal all the way to storm into this sunday final. Anyway, I like underdog like Tsonga. Eventually everyone who watches sports like to see upset. (correct me if i'm wrong) They work very hard on the court yet they enjoy the game.
Besides, the giant killer i mentioned. There is one that you should never overlook is the giant killer nation from Serbia. Novak Djokovic will take on the semi final against the Fedex and 2 of the women semi final spot were taken by them. Jelena Jankovic and Ana Ivanovic. I personally like Ana Ivanovic who eventually emerged to the winner in a thriling quarter-final against the william and an epic semi final against Daniel Hantuchova, where she fought back from 1 game down and take the winner. (congrates!! Ana) The lanky Ana is jus 20 and will play Maria Sharapova also 20 in the AO 2008 Women Final on this saturday.
This is her siganture first pump!!
