Wimbledon 2012: Tsonga beat Kohlschreiber 7-6, (7-5), 4-6, 7-6, (7-3), 6-2
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga knows that he faces a partisan crowd when he faces Andy Murray in the Wimbledon semi finals.
The Frenchman beat Philipp Kohlschreiber in four sets to reach his second
“I will try to play my best tennis and try to win,” he told the BBC before Murray had beaten David Ferrer. “I have had a lot of support from the crowd here.
“If I play Andy Murray, it may be different - because normally the crowd cheer for Andy.
“But tennis has values of fair play, and I will do my best.”
“I’m so happy I have a second chance in a semi-final at Wimbledonm,” he added.
“It was difficult today. Philipp played well, he served well, he was better than me on the baseline, he was very aggressive.
“But I’m through, and I’m happy. It doesn’t matter who I play in the semi-final. It’s a second chance after last year.
