Roger Rasheed, who coaches Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, says that his charge still has the potential to win a Grand Slam title.

“Jo has already been to a Grand Slam final (the 2008 Australian Open) and I believe he’s a player that can grab a Grand Slam title,” said Rasheed.  “The good thing is that he’s a player that believes he can win a Grand Slam title, too.

“When we got together I told him it would take a while to come together, but working with Jo is exciting. He has the game to make a real impact. He can be dangerous anywhere, but particularly on grass, because it’s natural to him. The most important thing for me is that he wants to make every day, in training and on the court, a day to remember.”

Tsonga will contest the  Aegon Championships at Queen’s Club, June 10-16.
