Olympics R2: Tsonga def. Raonic 6-3, 3-6, 25-23

Really good fight from milos. This was a horror show as far as returning goes in that 3rd set though. It looked like this could have been isner v.s mahut all over again but tsonga's experience and fitness got him through in the end. Fantastic way to finish it for jo

Classic grass tennis.

Respect to both Jo and Milos.

Amazing match, I was entertained.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

Milos last game. Rushing to the net á la Roddick.

Great match, hopefully Tsonga will have sth left for his next match(es). And I'm slowly starting to feel for Raonic, all these tough losses against the top guns (3 times against Fed now against Jo). Well, at least he got that big win against Andy in Barcelona.

Federer |Söderling |most of the Germans

I also like: Wawrinka | Tsonga | Dimitrov | Isner | Gulbis |

Warm regards: 6-3 6-0 / 6-3 6-4

Raonic is just He just can't close out those tough matches.
fed IW,Fed madrid,monaco 5 in RG,Fed halle,querrey 4 WIM and now tsonga at the olympics.
A pattern has definitely emerged

Another Game for Milos

I really though Raonic had this match, wow.
