Nice result to wake up to - well done Misha

Sorry about the all-Russian thing Annie Just think at least you will have someone to cheer for in the next round whoever wins or loses That is how I try to look at it when two of my favourites play each other.

Congrats Misha

Sorry for Kolya but from what I saw of the match, Misha played great and deserved to win!

Good luck against Tsonga DAVAI TEDDY !!!!!

(according to the AO website there's a resemblance between him and Mohammed Ali, so beware of the uppercut )

Re: First Grand Slam of The Year! 2008 AO Thread

I didn't see the match because I was at work I was trying to follow the livescores as much as possible, but it is hard to get the real "feel" of a match from that. I understand that Tsonga was "on fire" though, so maybe it was just one of those days

According to the BBC website which updates match reports during the game, they said Misha had to have some strapping adjusted on his ankle, but I don't know if that was just precautionary or something more serious. I hope he will be OK.

Re: First Grand Slam of The Year! 2008 AO Thread

Misha Tsonga was just too good in this match. Misha needs to work on developing a strong first serve...he was forced to fight in nearly service game. Also, he's gotta work on his overheads
But anyways, this was a very good tournament for him, got him back into the top 10. So keep working hard, Misha, and stay injury free

Tsonga has just been on fire at the AO I don't know why because he sure didn't use to play like this May be new coaching
