Anyone taking Tsonga lightly is crazy. He's improved greatly in the last 12 months, not to mention what he did to Federer at Wimbledon last year. They had a very close match on grass at Queens last year which Murray only just edged. Tsonga's very unpredictable but he can be very dangerous if he can maintain his consistency for a whole match which he's doing more & more now. He came so close to beating Djokovic at the French too with the five match points.

It'll be a closer match than most people think. Murray will be favourite, just, but don't write Tsonga off. They've not met recently that I can remember but Tsonga's so much better now than he was a year ago. He'll push Murray all the way.

Awesome looking pair of semis. With Nadal out they're both extremely equal. Think it's gonna be a Murray/Djokovic final now. Ferrer is every bit as good as Tsonga and Murray looked really good against him. Can't see Federer beating Djokovic unless he brings his absolute A Game. Wimbledon Final with Murray would be so awesome.

Really going behind Tsonga to beat Murray!

Federer will finally clash with DJokovic at Wimbledon, they've now played in the semi of every single Slam, awesome.

Whoever wins the Novak/Federer semi wins the slam for mine.

3. I dislike his attitude a lot of times (though, tennis players often show different behaviors).
4. Every time I see his mother in the stands I'm just like "God dammit, I hate her even though there is no logical explanation for that statement".
5. Every time he wins/celebrates a(n) victory/important point I just feel like he is the "most evil person on the planet"; I don't hate anyone, but I dislike him a lot and I despise seeing him win/celebrate.

So, he is utterly unappealing: looks, playstyle and behavior, everything. Again, he is unappealing to me, in a very spite-inducing way though.
I can't think of anyone besides Stepanek for who I feel the same way.

I like some players, I like a few a lot, and to most I am just neutral, unbiased and objective.
Murray, however, I just... Despise.

Besides his home country fans, friends and family, I can't wrap my head around the fact that anybody else would actually like him.

England will only like and support him until he loses, then he's just that Scottish hack who fails

I was sure that Tsonga would reach the semis after Nadal got eliminated. I said he was going to be the Darkhorse in the tournament and I was right.

I think Murray will beat him but I will not be surprised if Tsonga beats him. Tsonga should not be understimated. He beat Federer last year. Their matchup will be really close. I think it will be a 5 sets match with Murray winning in the end.

Federer vs Novak should be a great match but unfortunately I don't think Federer can beat him. Novak is just to good atm. I expect a closer match than the one in Paris though.

Which is funny. I don't understand why are people expecting so much from him. The top 3 are just much better than him.

I also picked Tsonga as the dark horse.

I think they expect so much from him because there hasn't been a British guy winning a slam in like 50 years or something let alone Wimbledon. He's not even British lol he's Scottish
