Tennis-Federer cut down by inspired Tsonga

LONDON - Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga produced a devastating fightback to knock six-times champion Roger Federer out of Wimbledon on Wednesday and set up a semi-final against Novak Djokovic.
The powerful 12th seed looked down and out as ice-cool Federer picked him off at will to stroll two sets up on Centre Court but he left the Swiss reeling with a ferocious onslaught to win 3-6 6-7 6-4 6-4 6-4 and reach his third major semi-final.
It was the first time 16-times grand slam champion Federer had lost a match having led by two sets and put a huge question mark over the 29-year-old's chances of matching Pete Sampras's seven Wimbledon singles titles.
"It was just amazing today, I played unbelievable, everything was in," Tsonga said.
