David Ferrer v Jo Wilfried Tsonga Live
Fourth seeded David Ferrer of Spain will be up against sixth seeded Frenchman Jo Wilfried Tsonga in the second semi-final at the French Open 2013 on Friday. It’s a match between unlikely semi-finalists but it should be an interesting match given the kind of form both have shown.
Both Ferrer and Tsonga are yet to drop a set this tournament. Tsonga was stretched to a tie-breaker only once whole French Open and that came in the second round against Jarrko Nieminen. On the other hand Ferrer has yet to even see a tie-breaker this tournament and will be quietly confident.
Even last year Ferrer had done well all tournament till he came up against Rafael Nadal and this will be an excellent chance for him to get to his first ever final. That said, he holds a 3-1 record against Tsonga in head to head that should give him more confidence.
Tsongas confidence will come from the fact that he has just beaten Roger Federer in the quarter-final and done that in straight sets. The big question is whether he can tame the in-form Spaniard who loves this surface more than any other.
