Johansson def. Clement 6-4, 7-6, 6-7, 7-6

Tremendously tight match, Clement was up a break in the third and took it eventually and they were neck and neck throughout the fourth, but Tojo held on in the end. Amazing to think where he was the last time he played Roddick, it's sad to think of what might have been without the eye injury. Good luck though!

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

amazing ToJo, I was giving him as a finished player but he played brilliant

would have been 3-0 if he had got more first serves in the TB of that set
Clement needed some wonderful shots to win points at times

good luck against Roddick, he surely has a chance

Good for Thomas! It was a very tight match. Unlucky for Clement

Good match.

Some of those ball kids deserve a nobel peace prize or something for resisting the urge to kick Clement square in the nuts.

They were playing 10 times against each otehr in the past but today's match between these two was tight for the first time.

Clement had saved two match points in the third set breaker.

I'm really going to miss Tojo when he's gone, now that I think of it. A solid professional, although certainly not the emotionless one that many have claimed considering the outbursts I've seen. His blog from Rome last year is worth revisiting, it got eclipsed by Tursunov's tomfoolery but it was very funny in its own right.

That was an enjoyable match and well done to Tojo . He had beaten Clement at Washington DC about a month ago so I thought that he had a chance of repeating the feat today. Good luck to him against Roddick.

Well, USO has ball adults not kids I believe all of them are forewarned of Clément.

Amazing play from ToJo thought he would lose concentration after losing the third set tiebreak, but he came out very strong in the fourth and made an amazing fourth tiebreak ^^ will be fun to see how he plays against Roddick in what could be called a DC pre-match =)

It was also good to see that Tojo's eyes seemed to be fine in the fading light. He played Monfils in similar conditions at Wimbledon and conceded a crazy amount of aces (an average of more than 2 per game) so I had my concerns.

Nice match to watch.

I found ToJo much more nimble-footed than I would have thought given his recent results. Since the moment he overcame 3 BP at 2*-3 in the fourth, he had no problem on his serve and played a perfect last TB.

He could give Roddick troubles next round, interesting match to come.
