Marseille SF: JM Del Potro overcomes JW Tsonga 6-4 6-7(9) 6-3

Close match for two sets... Tsonga saved a mp in the second set tb, and Delpo had saved 5 sps before losing the second set.

Ultimately Del Potro was the steadier player, Tsonga paid dearly for one loose game at the beginning of the final set.

Tsonga served 26 aces.

Overcome? He choked the tie-break. He is a class above Clownga

Good match

Congrats to Juan and good luck in the final.

As for Jo credit that he fought so hard in the second but it's sad he practically handed the match away so early in the third.

Pretty good match.
I don't know what is up with Juan, he still can't play the way he wants to.

I should have known not to pick Tsonga to win- the clown is too strong.

But Del Po was the better player, and Tsonga made a ridiculous amount of unforced errors.

Not good at all, but he gets the win and keeps a Llodra-Del Potro final alive.

The tie break was close all along, he did have a couple of loose points at **5-4 . He's been awful at tbs for a long time, but Tsonga did serve quite nicely during the tb.

Re: Marseille SF: JM Del Potro overcomes JW Tsonga 6-4 6-7(9) 6-3

Delpo blowed his chances to close the match in two sets but fortunately managed to keep steady to win the match in the 3rd. Now he is the favourite to clinch the title tomorrow. Definitely needs to develop that department where he is wasting his chances to close sets/matches as it happened with Baghdatis in Sydney or with Tsonga this week in Marseille. However he is in the right way to return back to the top 5. Well done

No. That way I was able to completely switch to the Goerges match.

Del Potro's place is easily at number 5. Whether he can climb higher than that is the real question.

Good job!

Del Potro's first win with a match point up losing set (comparing to veterans: Federer - 11, Roddick - 9, Hewitt - 8, Ferrero - 7) All of them played +100 tournaments more than Del Potro.
