Match 1: Jo-Wilfrid Tsonga def Rainer Schuettler 4-6 6-3 6-4
When I woke up this morning, I thought: no need torush this is going to be easy stuff for Tsonga. I mean Schuettler hasn't done anything special since making the 2003 Australian Open Final. Okay he got rid off Florent Serra quite easily, but Serra sort of gave him the match. I arrived at 4-3 Schuettler, serve to follow. So basically, Rainer was up a break. Both guys kept their respective serve, Schuettler won the first set 6-4. Early in the second, Tsonga was still making uncommon mistakes and allowing Schuettler to come in and hit a few great shots. All I were thinking, was ''Come On Tsonga!Accelerate!". Because honestly, I thought he was being a little pusher . Anyways at 4-3, Schuettler got broken and Tsonga hold serve to take the second. The third, would be a ''who wants it more contest'' Tsonga hitting way better, came through in ordinary fashion, but a WIN is a WIN.
Match 2: Juan Carlos Ferrero def Gael Monfils 6-3 7-6
This match was clearly highlighted by the burning sun. I mean ''BURNING" ! I had to put some water on my towel and put it over my face during changeovers. Thats part of the reason why I didn't really enjoy the match. The other reason is simply the WINNER. I wanted Monfils to win sooooo badly. I mean he's such a Show Man and of course he speaks French so he gets the crowd cheerings . Well after seeing Ferrero play today, I can tell Murray better play great . What in fact ''killed'' Monfils today was the early breaks he suffered early in both sets . Also, he was not accelerating as much as he does usually. I think he was injured, but he didn't call for the trainer . Lets see how he does next week
Not that I were tired of frenchmen, but I were happy not to here people cherring them on with that France accent. I guess it's a natural thing to imitate this accent while cheering a frenchman. Anyways, Andy was smoking good in that first set, while Andreev was home -running a few forehands. In the second, Andy wasn't near as great, but mostly because of Andreev, who's game had improved enormously from first. Andy looking Smoking Hot! could hear young girl cheering: ''Andy Marry Me!". I dont know why, but in Montreal Roddick is very popular when it comes to woman and young girls. Is that the case everywhere. Anyways, I definetely look forward to that Djoko-Roddick Qurterfinal Match. I hope its not at night, because thats the only session I wont attend. I handed out my tickets before knowing the Draw
