Roland Garros QF : Djokovic def. Tsonga 6-1 5-7 5-7 7-6(6) 6-1 saving 4 match points

Fine effort from Tsonga but Djokovic played the match points very well and once he got the 4th set then he broke Tsonga's mentally and last set was comfortable.

Plenty of drama and some entertainment as well.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Roland Garros QF: Matchpointovic def. Tsonga 6-1, 5-7, 5-7, 7-6(6), 6-1

I think he saved maybe 4 or 5 match points in the 4th? Very clutch play.

But he was up breaks in the 2nd and the 3rd before choking them away. Thank God he enjoys defending against match points so much.

As strange as it sounds it was Tsonga's defense that won him 2 sets. He was losing waste majority of the points when he played over aggressive, but won a lot when he was defending and almost moonbaling Djokovic who really struggled to create pace and maintain control. And when you can't penetrate Tsonga's defense on clay - it is not a good sign. Djokovic was clutch on those MPs, some might accuse Tsonga on being too passive on those, but hey, he was just sticking to the strategy that got him there. Fifth set collapse was kinda inevitable.

Nole has the best mental strenght I've ever seen. Gutted for Tsonga, but wow, incredible from the Serb.

I love attacking tennis

Tsonga

Nole is the mental GOAT though.
