2014 ROGERS CUP: Tsonga Beats Djokovic AND Murray, Faces Dimitrov In Semi, Federer-Lopez In Other

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga won his first two matches against Top 10 players this year at the Rogers Cup in Toronto this week, beating World #1 Novak Djokovic 6-2 6-2 and following that up with an epic comeback down 0-3 in the final set to beat Andy Murray 7-6(5) 4-6 6-4. His reward? A third top 10 player in Grigor Dimitrov who saved 2 match points in his 3rd set tiebreaker to sneak past Kevin Anderson 5-7 7-5 7-6(6). Tsonga is 3-0 against Dimitrov but has not played the Bulgarian phenom since 2011.

In the other semifinal. Roger Federer will face Feliciano Lopez. On his 33rd birthday yesterday, Federer defeated David Ferrer for the 15th time in a row, while Lopez outlasted Milos Raonic. Federer has a 10-0 lifetime head to head against the Spaniard.

MadProfessah's picks: Federer versus Dimitrov.
