RG R3: Tsonga def. de Bakker 6-7(6) 7-6(4) 6-3 6-4

No thread? Really entertaining stuff in the first 2 sets, after that de Bakker didn't believe he could win anymore.
Tsonga did seem to suffer from a leg/back injury and wasn't fresh as usual.

Still great experience for the rising Dutchman.

Good payback victory for Tsonga after the Barcelona debacle. Still needs work on return game but keep fighting & improving ma dude!

Is de Bakker the guy so many people on MTF said was as good as BYE when he played Rafa in MC?

Thiemo. Very good debut at RG though.

Tsonga - Wawrinka - Del Potro - Gasquet - F.Lopez - Monfils - Haas - Janowicz - Youzhny - Tomic - Hewitt - Gulbis - Mahut - Haase - Schoorel - Sijsling - Huta Galung - De Bakker - Van der Duim - Westerhof - Middelkoop - Koolhof - Lootsma - S&T. Griekspoor - Sels - Van Rijthoven

All time: Safin - Schalken - Krajicek - Sluiter - Verkerk - Henman - Ivanisevic - Nalbandian - Ferrero - Philippoussis - Sampras - Siemerink - Blake - F.Gonzalez - Ancic - Haarhuis/Eltingh

Still supporting all the Dutchies despite their great choking skills
Looking forward to the Dutch Futures and Challengers this summer!

I agree Ossie. Seems some people have a compulsive need to downgrade anything achieved by the players they hate.

Tsonga looked a bit uncomfortable at the end, even had a few tears in his eyes, whether it was because he was happy or hurt, don't know.

Allez Jo

After Nadal beat Monfils at Doha, before AO 2014

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

Rafa's tournaments on clay are filled with BYEs. Just give him the trophy now.
