Wimbledon R1: [12] Tsonga def. [Q] Soeda 6-3 7-6(4) 6-2

Closer match than expected. I thought it would be more like 6-1 6-2 6-1. Soeda had quite a few opportunities in all three sets to break and to gain leads or get back on serve, but was 1/13 on break points and Jo Willy hit aces on several of 30 all points as well. Jo Willy obviously was never in danger here.

Hopefully there is a report, and we can know if Soeda played well, or if Jo was just on cruise control and not putting 100% in.

Wimbledon R1: Tsonga def Soeda 6-3 7-6(4) 6-2

Soeda played pretty well. Tsonga really needs to step things up if he is going to win Wimbledon this year. He has just a little to much extra shotmaking ability for Soeda in the 2nd set tie-break.

Tsonga? Win wimbledon? He won't even be close.
