Both were equally matched in the first and second sets, but then Murray was just too good and consistent for Tsonga. Some cracking winners by both players, overall good match. NID that Andy would win, though. Nadull next, should be fun

Next Nadal. That will be the true test of his GS potential.
So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...
Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.
Tsonga wins the 2nd, he wins the match. He's a great front runner. He doesn't like to battle from behind, why in the hell do you think it took him so long to play a 5 setter? He gets behind he loses interest. Murray stepped his game up big in the end though. Jo had no answer, but good to see Tsonga act with class at the net as always. Good sportsmanship from both.
“The goal, when I took my break of six months, was doing this for the next couple years, not just for one tournament, I understand people who say, ‘Oh, this would be a perfect moment to go.’ But I feel like I’ve put in so much work, and I love it so much, and I still have so much in the tank.”
