Wimbledon R2:  Tsonga def. Dimitrov 6-7(4) 6-4 6-4 7-6(8)
An ultra entertaining match as expected. Great shotmaking by both. Dimitrov has a very flashy game and walks with a swagger, but he's got some pretty major holes as well, and he struggled after each rain delay. Tsonga served huge, moved well, was generally consistent, and hit some big forehands. Both hit some great volleys and overall it was a nice match to watch, as it had variety, power and finesse.
Both hit some amazing passing shots, including Tsonga hitting one off a Dimitrov smash that lead to the break for *4-3 in the fourth, and Dimitrov hitting several, especially back to back ones down *4-5 in the fourth.
The main difference in this match was the serve of Tsonga, and the experience factor. Good win for Jo Willy, got very tight at the end and lost his first serve rhythm, double faulted twice and was broken serving for the match at *5-4. The tiebreak was amazing from both players, points were won with both hitting winners, not errors, except for the next to last point where Dimi had a brain cramp. Dimitrov has a ton of confidence and that will do him a lot of favors in the future.
Now plays Gonzalez in R3, which should be another entertaining encounter.
