Jeremy Chardy made a huge upset on Wednesday in Rogers Cup Tennis championships that are being held in Toronto as he ousted his fellow countryman and third seed of the event, Jo Wilfredp-Tsonga in straight sets 6-4,7-6 (7-5).
Jo-Wilfred Tsonga had suffered an upset loss at singles event of London Olympics 2012 last week after he lost to Milos Raonic in an epic battle of 3 hours and 46 minutes and then reached finals of the doubles event where he and his partner Michael Llodra lost to Bryan Brothers and got a silver medal.
Jeremy Chardy did not get broken in the whole match and saved all the three break points that he faced in the match. He broke Tsonga once in the first set to take the set 6-4 and second set went on serve throughout and went to tie-breaker where Chardy notched it. This is Chardy's fifth win against a top 10 player.
Tsonga would be disappointed on capitalising on the absense of Nadal and Federer as he could have reached semifinals once again, like he did in 2009, when he lost to Murray and 2011, when he lost to Djokovic.
Chardy will face Marcel Granollers of Spain in the next round.
