Tsonga Wants His First Title on Grass

Jo Wilfried Tsonga will try to go one step further than last year by winning his first grass court title at The Queen’s Club June 11-17, 2012.

“I had an incredible year in 2011, and it all started there (at Queen’s Club),” said Tsonga. “For me it is really nice, the organizers are very friendly with me, I like the crowd, and it was a really good atmosphere in the final. I beat Lleyton Hewitt there in 2007 to get into the Top 100 for the first time and that’s where I started to do my celebration like this (he demonstrates his jumping celebration with two thumbs pointing to his back).”
