Obviously, you play a lot of mind games with yourself, but it is important to always believe that you can play your best, perform your best, and in the end, your convictions are stronger than your doubts.

Really good tourney this year - hopefully a great final, and aggressive/varied shotmakers Melzer, Colonel, Funky Flo (and Lalo) making the quarters/semis. oh, and a local wildcard making the trademark epic run to the QF.
Tsonga needs to serve great and do great at the net. He needs to shorten points and not let Nole getting into a rhythm from the baseline. Nole's ability to turn defense into offense seamlessly is unrivaled so rallying with him won't be a good idea for Jo at all.
Of course it'd also help if he could return serve a little bit better than usual.
