Videos: Tsonga, Djokovic dive all over Wimbledon?s Centre Court

When Novak Djokovic and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga played this magnificent point early in their Wimbledon semifinal, I thought it would end up going down as the best one of the tournament. My downstairs neighbors likely agreed, as there's a good chance I woke them up with my loud, guttural yell after the point.

Turns out it wasn't even the best of the match. If we can call the last point a "Single Becker" (meaning one player sprawled out on Centre Court like Boris Becker in 1986), the one below, which took place two sets later, would be considered a "Double Becker."

As a sports fan, that's all you can ask for: two athletes who want to win so badly that they're playing out a routine point in the middle of a match like it's the last they'll ever play. The best part of it all: Djokovic-Tsonga is considered the undercard to Friday's much-anticipated semifinal between Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray.
