Harrison's 20 now, he needs to grow up and stop throwing tantrums!

I actually thought he got to the ball in time when I saw the replay, umpire looked sure of it too. Good sportsmanship from Jo.

Thought the second set was rather high-quality, all in all Tsonga was better but Harrison served great in that set.

Nice thing to do, hopefully Nadal watched.
Good match by Tsonga, really strong on serve except near the end of the match when he lost 3 points on serve in the TB. Ryan tried, but he's not good enough (yet).

i like harrison, think he is talented, but he needs a kick up the arse over his attitude. he cant keep on acting like a 17 year old, he is 20 now. he also played this match shockingly when it came to tactics, stood 40 feet behind the baseline and let tsonga swing away and dictate things. tsonga is no clay court expert but if you give him high mid court balls he is gonna make more than he misses.

still i'm confident the right coach can sort these things with him

Nice gesture from Tsonga It was a point which could shift the momentum.

expected result for our Nation, Jo

Supporting the Ballbasher Nation, some of our proud soldiers:
Juan Martin del Potro - Robin Soderling - Ernests Gulbis - Thomas Berdych - Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
Exiled: Janowicz
Pusher Nation's Reign of Terror is coming to an end, their borders are conquered and we won't take any prisoners!
Get Ready King Mandy!

everytime Mandy wins, a little ballbasher kitty dies somewhere... Save kitties; support Ballbasher Nation

Unfortunately, that is his comfort zone. He is like that too in practice.
