Tsonga 9-2 in tie-breaks this year, two setpoints saved in the tie-break, the first one with casually backhand which landed on the line. Tursunov at the first moment thought he had won the set

Piggy Roasting time Nadal will play the loopy shit he played against Dimitrov (like he almost always does) and get blasted by Tsonga.

Tursonov played well 1st set, but Jo killed him in 2nd!

No, Nadal will play outstandingly well, I have the feeling he'll play better in the end of the week.

Bloger had 6:4 in the TB and somehow he lost the next 4 points in a jiffy shanking all over the place. He also had his chances in the second but as usually he burned himself down. Tsonga was dead calm on BPs and SPs.

Nadal always plays as bad as possible, but within chances of winning. Tomorrow he will raise his level.

Not that Jo Wilfried is looking good, this is so far an ugly tournament.

Nadal career prediction: 6 RG, 2 Wimbledon, 1 Australian Open, 1 US Open, 2 Master Cup, 20 Master Series, 65 titles.
(Predicted before RG 2008 when he had 3xRG)

Re: R'dam R2: Tsonga def Tursunov 7/6 (6) 6/2

Tsonga didn't play a good match today. He needs bigger and more snappy auditorium. The Rotterdam crowd isn't snappy but at least in the quarterfinal the stadium should be full up.

Are you there mimi? Tsonga didn't do it today

Somebody please buy Tursunov a brain!

Not a single first serve in at the tie-break and outstanding attempt to volley on BP in the second set
What a genius Mitya is!

Re: R'dam R2: Tsonga def Tursunov 7/6 (6) 6/2

I think Tsonga actually played very well today. By this thread you'd think Tursonov played like crap when he in fact probably played his best match of the year (though not saying much). He showed variety with slices drop shots and volleying that he usually doesn't, but couldn't come on top in the big points. And I know Nadal always takes it as easy as he can in early matches, but honestly Tursonov today seemed like a harder matchup for Tsonga than even a somewhat in-form Nadal.
