Davis Cup QF 4th Rubber: Tsonga Blows Monaco to Smithereens 6-3 6-3 6-0 (2-2)

Jo Excellent performance.

Fifth rubber coming, I assume Nalbandian will play for Argentina, but who will play for France?

Wrong, Jaite confirmed Berlocq.

Stronga was awesome, he hit the lines so many times. Excelent depth with the backhand, great movement, good serving, excelent at the net. Overall amazing performance by him.

Too strong from Jo.

Monaco's level is vulturing MMs, not big DC ties.

I think clay might be Tsonga's best surface, he just looks to have more time on his shots, brilliant performance.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Federer - The Artist
Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V

Tsonga played well Pico didn't take advantage of his opportunities, It is like Light and Dark with this match and his first match in the tie, Tsonga i mean.

Nalbandian is in no condition to play 5 sets, not even 2 imho.

Just too good, too solid from Jo. Allez!


By the 3rd set it was already a bit painful to watch Pico being destroyed. He didn't play that badly but Jo allways managed to turn the point in his favour.

Tsonga is priming for clay season, which I think might become his 2nd best surface after grass. Imo his FH is very well suited for clay (probably the 2nd best, after Nadal ofc). On clay he doesn't clown on ROS, just stays back and swings the groundstroke, and defensive wise is the best surface for him because he has more time to reach the ball in proper conditions.


I think Argentina should play with Berlocq again, he has been playing very well in the last couple of months.

So we'll be treated to choker Berlocq vs injured Simon? Sounds like an epic in the making for sure.

Disagree with this, he can hardly do any damage with his FH behind the baseline on clay, although he can construct points with it better I suppose. Agree about the rest though, there's no reason Jo can't improve on clay and have some good results.
