Roland Garros R1: [5] Tsonga def. [Q] Kuznetsov 1-6 6-3 6-2 6-4

Very good turnaround from Jo. Good serving the final three sets and was much more solid but also more assertive at the same time, more aggressive with his court positioning, didn't allow the Russian to tee-off like he was in the first set, hit some great forehands and backhands alike. Kuznetsov flashed his awesome ballstriking ability and hit some amazing returns, but was ultimately too inconsistent after the first set and lacks a degree of fitness.

Entertaining match and a good win for Tsonga.

Excellent first set from Kunzetsov, controlled every point. Could not keep it up though.

this pisses me off. Andrey could have beaten alot of the guys in the draw but he got stuck with tsonga

he fought really well. Hopefully his next grand slam he'll have a better first round

sometimes the draw is so unfair..you've got 2 talented guys like this facing off and then 2 clay clowns like soeda/tursunov guaranteeing 1 of them in the 2nd round

Always great to see Santoro interviewed, looking sharp also. As for the match, Kuznetsov was dominant in the first, bashing all over (but inside) the court. He pretty much crumbled after that, but good turnaround for Jo

Jo never wins routine, but in the end a win is a win.

AndreyKuznetsov can hit the ball really well!

Good first set from Kuznetsov. He looks like he could be a good player, needs to be a little more patient.

Andrey has a very nice and eye-pleasing game. Has to fine-tune a proper mix of consistency and shotmaking and he can go places. Experience prevailed.

Kuznetsov definitely has some fitness issues, he got tired during/after points, which resulted in him ejecting himself from the point.

Andrey is so talented that I cheered against Jowilly during the match.

Good win for Tsongy But Andrey

Andrey show very few patience in the end, because of stamina issues. Without these ones, this match could be so different. What a shotmaker the russian is!

Andrey is really talented. Why his ranking so low? A player with his talent should be in the top 100 at the very least. Even if he is inconsistent.
