anyone else have this predicted exactly correct? -- Tsonga loses the first then wins the next three.

Welcome to Davis Cup play Tsonga.

Hope we get to see some pics of Jo and Richard hugging it up after the match. Their friendship is very cute.

I like a lot of players.

Good to see Tsonga in a winning match after Aussie Open Pavel is a tricky opponent in Davis Cup.

Exciting match from both player, especially in the first set.Tsonga was too strong for Pavel, but he fought well.

Tsonga saved 3 break points in the last set.

Re: DC: Tsonga d. Pavel 6-7(2), 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 to give France commanding 2-0 lead

Very high level !
Pavel played an incredible TB in first set, with some great return-volleys.
But tsonga didn't lose his mind and broke in the first game of the second set. Then he started having the edge, and Andrei got more and more tired.
Key point of the match was maybe the middle of the fourth set.
The Roumanian line judges* made a mistake on a BP for Jo who started arguing with Molina. Forget didn't help his player to stay focus and then Tsonga made very ugly UE until Pvael gets 3 consecutive BP (2*/3 0/40).
One passing shot, a great second serve on the line, and a serve-volley lead the French to deuce. he hit 2 aces/service winners and the match was over.
Pavel tried to take the net at every point, but got passed each time in the game for the break (from 4/3* to 5/3).


* I have to tell that never roumanians line judges favored Pavel. 3/4 of hard calls were in Jo's side.

Hey All,

Good on Jo. Pavel is a good player. Isn't he the one that left the FO when his wife had the baby and then traveled back in time for his match? LOL! I'm pretty sure it was in 99 when Andre won it. Good man.


France take 2-0 lead over Romania in Davis Cup
Fri Feb 8, 2008 6:06pm GMT Email | Print | Share| Single Page | Recommend (0) [-] Text [+]

1 of 1Full SizeSIBIU, Romania (Reuters) - Australian Open finalist Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and world number seven Richard Gasquet put former champions France 2-0 up against Romania on the opening day of their Davis Cup world group tie on Friday.

The 21-year-old Gasquet looked tense at the start against Victor Hanescu, the world number 76, but soon found his rhythm to win 7-6 6-4 7-5.

Davis Cup debutant Tsonga, who beat three top-10 players in the Australian Open last month, dropped the first set against former top-20 player Andrei Pavel, 34, but came back to win 6-7 6-4 6-4 6-4.

On Saturday, Romania's Florin Mergea and Horia Tecau will play Arnaud Clement and Michael Llodra in the doubles.
