Archie's Picks: Djokovic-Tsonga

Archie loves underdogs, but not enough to jeopardize his perfect record as a Wimbledon seer. He's going with Djokovic over Tsonga.

Okay, so my dog is 6 for 6 and he's got four more matches to pick. It's crunch time, so it's out the window with sentimental BS and all that. Archie's here for one purpose: to see the future. If you guys want to make some money off him, then so be it. For him it's just an expression of clairvoyance. He's a philosophical dog, and he's comforted by the metaphysical. Seeing the future is just another way for Archie to tell non-believers that everything is going to be alright.

Okay, without any further ado, here is Archie's Tsonga-Djokovic pick.

Archies Pick: Djokovic
Why: He likes the fact that a chest-thumper like Nole has a soft side that let's him get in touch with squirrels.

My Pick: Djokovic
Why: I absolutely love Jo-Wilfried and his insanely athletic game, but it's really difficult to pick against Djokovic these days. Djokovic has lost the least games of any man left in the draw (57) and he's reached his 5th consecutive Grand Slam semifinal (something that only 5 other players have done in the open era). He's also 1 match away from the No. 1 ranking, with only Jo-Wilfried in his way. All signs point to Djokovic's first Wimbledon final, and even though Tsonga owns a 5-2 career edge against Djokovic, everything that happened before 2011 feels like it happened in another lifetime.

If Tsonga serves like we all know he can, he'll push Djokovic, and if he prowls the baseline in the inspired fashion that he did against Federer, he might take him out. Then again, even if Tsonga does all that, he still might go down. Djokovic has that many weapons, and more importantly, he's got that much belief.
