Match 1: Jo-Wilfrid Tsonga def Rainer Schuettler 4-6 6-3 6-4
When I woke up this morning, I thought: no need torush this is going to be easy stuff for Tsonga. I mean Schuettler hasn't done anything special since making the 2003 Australian Open Final. Okay he got rid off Florent Serra quite easily, but Serra sort of gave him the match. I arrived at 4-3 Schuettler, serve to follow. So basically, Rainer was up a break. Both guys kept their respective serve, Schuettler won the first set 6-4. Early in the second, Tsonga was still making uncommon mistakes and allowing Schuettler to come in and hit a few great shots. All I were thinking, was ''Come On Tsonga!Accelerate!". Because honestly, I thought he was being a little pusher . Anyways at 4-3, Schuettler got broken and Tsonga hold serve to take the second. The third, would be a ''who wants it more contest'' Tsonga hitting way better, came through in ordinary fashion, but a WIN is a WIN.
