Rafa’s consolation: Oh, Rafa. I know you’re sad about failing on the hardcourts yet again — this time losing to an on-fire Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-2, 6-3, 6-2 in the men’s semifinals at the Australian Open.
Hey, at least you can take solace in the Herald Sun thinking you were this fortnight’s best dressed.
Nadal joins fellow Tsonga scalps Richard Gasquet, shotmaker Andy Murray and the slice-happy Mikhail Youzhny in the sidelines while Tsonga awaits the winner of the Federer–Nole semi.
I guess the new court surface didn’t buckle the trend of unpredictability Down Under.
