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.
I used to be your everyday average Joe. Then one day some guy told me I can do whatever I set my heart on. So I tried to fly, and failed. He then told me that there are limitations in life and that I should be more modest in my aspirations. So I robbed a convenience store and got arrested. He then told me not to take everything people say literally, and to use my own initiative. So I became a Trump supporter, and am politely asking you to leave my country.

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.”
