I watched the first set.

Disgraceful, pathetic from Safin. It's high-time to retire.

More like a hard court match. Both very comfortable on serve. The more aggressive player won the rallies.

Tsonga was too good on important points. Safin never came close to breaking.

Isn't this court pretty slow? If it is, then are you expecting big wins from Safin on slow clay?

At least Safin didn't waste two breaks advantage

Tsonga looked a bit clueless with his shot choice at times in the rallies, he really doesn't like clay. Still, he did what was necessary - bangbangbang with his own serve, never really under much pressure, and let Safin implode at the end of each set.
