Johannesburg R4: Tsonga def. Istomin 6-1, 6-4

It was all Tsonga. Istomin never had even a single BP. I think Tsonga will get the title.

It should be an easy one for him. But even with this title, he'd still be out of the top 10.

Give him evening session all the week and the title is under his belt.
The stadium in Johannesburg looks weird. Reminds me of tournaments in the 80's

the ATP livescore is ridiculous showing this (and all today matches) like "4th round"

I think Baghdatis will be an obsticle for Tsonga. Baggy is playing very well right now.

Baggy or Ferrer will probably be in the final. But I don't consider either to be an obstacle. Unless Tsonga was injured, which he doesn't seem to be right now.

But not for too long.
He has virtually no points to defend in the next few months

Tsonga is defending a mere 450 points over the next 7 months. Top 10 or even 5 should be possible.

Re: Johannesburg R4: Tsonga def. Istomin 6-1, 6-4

Tsonga is healthy and hungry to play - 4 tennis weeks this year and Tsonga plays 4th tournament It is his just 33rd ATP tournament, two years younger Djokovic and Murray have already played more than 70
