lol Tsonga having so much trouble in first round. He isn't that good on clay. He needs to lose 20 pounds to be a threat in other slams.

Brands chooked almost 3 service games in the 3rd after beeing a break up with 2-1 and 40-40 he made DF then he had 40-15 but did hold then 40-15 in the last game.

Brands never had the slightest chance to win this.

Crushed for Brands since he came so darn close. Daniel did a great job.

Brands should take a lot from this...very good composure against a top 10 opponent in France at the biggest stage. That is except for those blown 40-15 leads the last 2 service games

A Tsonga-Ouanna match could be kinda interesting

Bwah. Tsonga just got lucky as he was proclaiming the entire match. In comparison to Brands' "luck", Tsonga did in fact get lucky.

Fun match to watch, credit to Tsonga for pulling through and Brands for almost producing on the big stage.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V
