Nole's quarter of the draw is the worst possible place for such ambitions though. Still, if he gets to QF - he should beat Fish, but Cilic/Raonic will surely be tricky opponents - he's in with a chance vs Novak for sure, albeit as a clear underdog. I liked what I saw from Tsonga, his BH seems more stable and his body language is quite positive. This was a great match, Blake really turned back the clock for this one - first set is one of the best sets of tennis you'll see all year, incredible tennis especially in the first few games.
