Re: Rotterdam R1: Sijsling sizzles Tsonga 7-6(3) 4-6 6-4

people speak of the advantage of fast courts for Tsonga, but the problem is his focus problems are particularly a problem there, and also his return weakness.

Sijsling is a nice player, I saw him playing live, really talented, unfortunately has had too many injuries.

Fed is not yet in the final : Simon is still a potential semifinalist in his half

and as we saw today, things can go so quickly on this surface : Llodra and Zemlja can serve very well

What a shame Llodra is not in Delpo's section

he played very well but it's not an unbelievable level for him, I think : he can play very well indoors.

That's just Tsonga being off his game, he looks awful when that happens. First two sets were pretty meh from both players, but in the third set Igor managed to raise his game and outplay Tsonga!

One of the strangest days in opening day recent history continues, Klizan vs. Fed in the Semi, can't wait.

Where do you think his peak will be?

Sijsling is unpredictable but I would still have expected Tsonga to pull through this.

Impressed with Sijsling! He kept his composure and played some excellent points, especially in the third set

Come on, that was nothing extraordinary from Igor today. Very well played, with focus and desire, but that`s it. It was good level, but I saw him playing better. Tsonga just was that really horrible - miss and miss and miss again. No backhand, shaky forehand, weak volleyes.

Gasquet is next №1

Really Jo, what the fuck?

I actually think Bernard Tomic will easily win career-year mixed doubles slam in 2020.

Jealous? Yeah, you are, you dirty hater.
