Jo-Wilfried Tsonga Def James Blake 6-4, 6-4, 7-6 (3)

ALLEZ JO!

Disappointing match from both players, didnt live up to the hype, but still happy jo's through yoohoo. At least after mourning Murray, 'still got one fav to cheer for hehe, or two (Verdasco's a cutie lol).

Yeah crap game, many UE and not much drama. Tsonga was 2-5 down in the last set but came back, and it was the highlight of the match.

Good effort James, but I'm happy to say Jo outguns you.

Only Blake could play such a clownish tiebreak after starting it off with an epic winner.

Very impressive stuff from Tsonga on serve, James was pretty piss poor, it was NID that he'd find a way to lose that 3rd set despite a 5-2 lead. Tsonga-Verdasco should be a ripper of a QF if both play aswell as they have so far.

14.

Tsonga CRUSHES Blake 6-4, 6-4, 7-6!!!

Wow Tsonga made a muscle at the end of the match and Blake could barely look at him at the net and hightailed it out of the stadium in a BIG HURRY!

I really think he overpowered Blake, but also psyched him out by showing him that he could hang with his power and even overpower him and outserve him. Blake is VERY UNCOMFORTABLE with the idea that anyone can overpower him. He likes to be the "big man" on the court but today his whiny butt was sent home by beautiful, sexy Tsonga.

Tsonga is one of the few players in today's game playing the beautiful game. Fantastic serving, big groundstrokes and net-attacking. This is the way the game is meant to be played. Kudos to Tsonga for that.

Too bad that a player like Tsonga can't be the saviour of the sport. Tennis doesn't want to be saved...

justin bieber is not the best in history.
funk was better than rap.
techno not better than classic rock.

numbers are not everything.

I've hopped right aboard the Tsonga bandwagon once again, allez! Blake was never winning this.

expectedly easy. I suspect Jo is playing in a bit of pain at the moment. A lot of grimmacing and vamosing on blake's errors.

Tsonga

Showed some good fight back against Blake's set points in the third, and cruised other than that. Didn't seem to show much physical wear and tear, really, and turned it up a notch when it mattered, to which Blake had no answer

Hoping for Tsonga-Nadal, but Verdasco will be no cupcake, that looks like it will be an interesting battle

The only thing I enjoy more than seeing Nadal beaten by a better grinder is seeing "shelf butt" Blake outmuscled and overpowered and nearly having a breakdown because of it.

Clownish match, biggest clown won. I hope he gets his sorry ass badly kicked by Nando next round.
