Tennis - Jo-Wilfried Tsonga says he would quit if he did not believe he could win a grand slam- View: 3648 by Prakash
Tennis - Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga says he is aiming to fulfill his childhood dream of winning a grand slam title and that he would stop playing if he did not believe he could win one. Speaking to Sport360 in Abu Dhabi where he was playing the Mubadala World Tennis Championships last weekend, Tsonga says, "If I think I’m not able to achieve it I will stop.
I’m not that kind of guy who will play just for playing and be on the tour, I don’t care. I have family, I make a lot of sacrifices to play tennis, even if it’s my passion, so I’m doing it just because I really believe that I can do something great. I’m not doing it for recognition from people.
I’m doing it for me. Because when I was young I had a dream to win a Grand Slam and whatever people think, I just try to do everything in a good way and I hope it will happen." Tsonga's go-for-broke style has made him a fan favourite across the globe but he has failed to replicate his early success in grand slams when he reached the finals of the Australian Open in 2008.
