Rafa about Tsonga:

It is a court that he likes to play on. The court is quick. He feels comfortable on these surfaces because he has a huge serve, very, very good forehand. He likes to hit the serve and then hit the forehand and go to the net. He’s a very competitive player. When he’s in the semi-finals it’s because he’s playing well. So it will be a very tough match. I hope to play well, keep doing like every day, playing a little bit better every day. I hope tomorrow to continue with that improvement.

Tsonga about Rafa:

We can see that Rafa really want to come back at his best. He’s really focused, he wants to be back at the best level. I know it’s going to be a tough match, he’s going to give everything. I’ll have to play at the same level I played the last few days to beat him, otherwise it’s impossible.

Our champ Rafa has played Tsonga eleven times before and leads the series 8-3, including an impressive 6-2 on hard courts. Here are the matches they have played against each other:
