WWW RG R3: Tsonga v Wawrinka

Appearing at a court near you - even if not quite a marquee matchup, slated for PC.

Tsonga has won his previous matches quite handily, and Wawrinka seems to have abandoned the formula he was trying out earlier in the clay season called "let's see how close I can come to losing without actually losing"

Which one of them advances?

Re: WWW RG R3: Tsonga v Wawrinka

This is a very good matchup...I think Stan will win in 5. But I could see Tsonga winning as well

Re: WWW RG R3: Tsonga v Wawrinka

Tsonga's looked good so far in the FO. I caught one of his matches and he looked solid and the faster balls suit his style. Wawrinka has been very patchy this year after a very good start to 2011.

I think Tsonga in 4 or 5.

Tsonga in three. He has played well so far and French players of course wins in France, it seems.

Never ever give up

Re: WWW RG R3: Tsonga v Wawrinka

Wawrinka is a better player. But Tsonga took out Andreev in 3 sets which was remarkable. I didn't see much of that match so I have no idea what the Russian's level was. However, with the French backing, and with some straight set wins, I think Tsonga will defeat him in 4 tight sets.

I saw part of the Tsonga Andreev match. Tsonga looked very good throughout. Very solid serving with some massive forehands. Tsonga looks like he's picked it up quite a bit for the FO this year.

Re: WWW RG R3: Tsonga v Wawrinka

I don't think the title is correct. The title should be: The French crowd featuring Tsonga vs Wawrinka. And the winner will of course be The French crowd featuring Tsonga.

Re: WWW RG R3: Tsonga v Wawrinka

Wawrinka is a fantastic player, but I can't see him winning this one. The crowd will be supporting Tsonga, and he's pumped because of that.

Re: WWW RG R3: Tsonga v Wawrinka

Tennis is all about confidence. Playing against Tsonga at France is the last thing that Wawrinka needs. Expect Tsonga to play even better than against Andreev. He knows it´s his match and he is not the type of player to choke.
