Monte Carlo R3: Ferrero def. Tsonga 6-1 3-6 7-5

Entertaining match with an atrocious Tsonga in the first set. But Tsonga was all pumped in the second and third.
Some wonderful points in the 4th and 5th game of the final set.

Ferrero faces Nadal next.

He was pretty shit in the last game as well, but Wayno was the fave on clay.

Really good match from the second set onward when Tsonga came to the party - third set was really entertaining tennis and a great atmosphere.

Juanqui

Loving seeing him back in good form

Re: Monte Carlo R3: Ferrero def. Tsonga 6-1 3-6 7-5

Excellent win for Juan Carlos! He played smart and defended well enough to frustrate JW.

lleyton hewitt - old stalwart still plugging away on tour
novak djokovic - righful #1, 5 GS and counting, and as always, leaving bad tastes in tracy austin's mouth
italian guys - forza azzurri, especially seppi and bolelli

all time favorites: juan carlos ferrero, michael chang and patrick rafter

Tsonga saved MP at 4:5, still without a win after saving MP

Awesome, great result. More a relief actually, would have been a disaster to lose to Tsonga again especially on these clay courts. First Masters QF appearance in three years.

Didn't like the way JCF played towards the end. Moon-balling way too much, hoping for Tsonga errors. But a win is a win and it's his first over a top 10 this year.

Bring on the clayGOAT.

Re: Monte Carlo R3: Ferrero def. Tsonga 6-1 3-6 7-5

Pretty lame ending to what was a very exciting third set. As the bet365 commentator noted, Gasquet should watch Tsonga's will to win - even though he really clowned it away in the end. Ferrero didn't let the second set get him into panic mode and steadied the ship with some really good rallies. I agree with Jimnik that JCF maybe was waiting a bit for the errors to come, but in this context I think it was the right strategy. Tsonga was ready to blast the ball like he did when he saved MP so it was very much hit and miss. I think overall, Juanqui's experience got him through that one rather than exceptional play. He'll have to up it against Nadal for sure.
