RG R4: Tsonga def Wawrinka 6-4, 7-6(6), 3-6, 3-6, 6-4

Brilliant entertainment/drama so far. Pity it couldn't conclude.

EDIT: great, great stuff.

WWW : Tsonga leads Wawrinka 6-4 7-6 3-6 3-6 4-2 play suspended

Wrong decision by Tsonga to let them suspend play, should have fought to finish this tonight... Wawrinka will get a good night sleep and become a monster again imo...

First of all, a big thanks to Azam Asif for opening the thread instead of Action Jackson.


Wawrinka just saved himself a French Toast.

Brilliant play towards the end with both players finding form at the same time. Love it...

These suspended matches get very annoying. They should have made use of more courts instead of cramming all the matches. On another note, Tsonga's ass looked delectable and ripe, like a basket of fresh fruit. It definitely rivals Nadal's.

Tsonga suddenly resumed playing at 0-4 down in the 4th and from there on, it was pretty fun to watch. Too bad Wawrinka couldn't keep his momentum going into the 5th.

Stan can't win a tight set anymore. Well, that's actually nothing new.
No tiebreak win again. Good 3rd set. He could have won the 4th set 61 and lead 20 in the fifth, but no, he decided the way with even more action, drama and errors.

Whats with Wawa and five sets?

same thing happened to Granollers ysterday. Won the first 2 rather close sets like Tsonga did, then kind of went away for a set and a half like Tsonga did. Once it got to 4-0 in set 4 he got him game back exactly like Tsonga did and then he went on to win the 5th. Will Tsonga do that? We'll see but so far Granollers yesterday = Tsonga today

Good fight from Wawrinka to comeback from that hole, after failing to take advantage of the momentum in the second set when he broke back with Tsonga serving for the set at 5*-4 and had 3 set points at 6-5*. Not sure I agree with the decision to start playing the fifth set when they had barely 30 minutes of play still left and it was clear the final set wouldn't have finished the fast. It would have made more sense to finish at 2 set all rather than interrupt in the middle of the set like it happened.

I really like Stan, he is nice guy...but he just chockes and makes wrong decisions at crutial points.
****** single backhand and nice stamina he has....i dont think this favors him because he was still chasing dead balls all over.
If only he can win, but i doubt it.

That final set was the best I've seen Jo play on clay in a long time, maybe ever, and he showed a lot of mental strength in the 5th to get a break after memories of last year. He will be a monster on the grass/fast courts in the 2nd half of the year.
