Post AO 09 QF - F.Verdasco Vs J.W.Tsonga - WWW?

Battle of the big hitters and huge forehands, we all know about Tsongas capabilities and with Verdasco beating the favorite for the title he will no doubt be sky high as far as confidence goes, this could be a great match. although i pick:
Tsonga in 3 or 4 sets.

I'll go for Verdasco no doubt, the way he is playing atm is amazing.

None the less i'll prefer the 1 who could probz beat Nadal in the semi's assuming Nadal wins.

Re: AO 09 QF - F.Verdasco Vs J.W.Tsonga - WWW?

Both are playing awesome, but I have a feeling that Verdasco in the semis against Nadal would be a bit less competetive than a Rafa-Tsonga rematch.

Im going wiv Verdasco. I have been unimpressed wiv Tsonga as of late. He played magically against Ljubicic but his match against Blake was a bit dull. Doesnt fare well against a pomped up beau boi Nando

Re: AO 09 QF - F.Verdasco Vs J.W.Tsonga - WWW?

First of all I'm not convinced that Nadal is going to beat Simon Simon isn't chanceless before this match up. But I agree with the opinion that Tsonga would be a tougher opponent for Nadal than Nando...

Another tricky match, Tsonga has better chance to win in night session, Nando in day session. I hope the match will be entertaining and the winner of it takes the title

Typically after a huge upset comes a defeat, I say Tsonga in 4.

I think Jo and hope so that he can own Rafa again the way he did last year. Rafa is praying Nando wins.

nando won't get the chance to play the game he likes. tsonga is looking to be the aggressor all the time and that doesn't suit verdasco. he won't have the same amount of time to dictate points with his forehand as he did against murray. tsonga in 3 or 4

Tsonga in 3. Should be an entertaining match.
