• Tsonga opens at London Olympics against Bellucci

    Tsonga opens at London Olympics against Bellucci Jo-Wilfried Tsonga will contest his Olympic opener on Sunday against Thomaz Bellucci. Tsonga, who missed the 2008 Games in Beijing, recently made a second straight semifinal appearance at Wimbledon.

    Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is no stranger to success at the All-England Club, having reached two consecutive Wimbledon semifinals. Tsonga will be hoping for a similar result--if not more--as he heads back to those stomping grounds for the 2012 London Olympics.

    The sixth-ranked Frenchman is playing stellar tennis and is well on his way to another berth in the World Tour Finals (also in London). Tsonga, also a quarterfinalist at Roland Garros, is an impressive 34-13 for his 2012 campaign.

    Up first for the No. 5 seed is a Sunday encounter with Thomaz Bellucci, whom he has never faced. Bellucci had been slumping, but he is rounding into form in time for one of the most important parts of the season. The 40th-ranked Brazilian won a Challenger title in early July, reached the Stuttgart semifinals, then triumphed in Gstaad.

    Bellucci, though, has always done by far his best work on clay. He is 3-4 lifetime at Wimbledon, a record that includes back-to-back first-round losses (this year, however, to Rafael Nadal). The surface and Tsonga's level of play should be too much in a straight-set decision.
