Re: The end of the line : the european indoor season.

Just came online to see Jo involved in a tight three setter! 5-4 in the third for Jo-Willy now.

Jo with the towel on his head
Seriously though this should have been over loooooooooooong ago . Jo keeps switching between amazing and atrocious .

Edit: I hate tie breaks especially 3rd set ones

Re: The end of the line : the european indoor season.

He lost . Good thing because he can gain a lot of points in Valencia since soderling isn't playing. The extra rest should help.

Re: The end of the line : the european indoor season.

I can't believe he lost against Clement. Was he playing that bad or was Clement playing out of this world?

Re: The end of the line : the european indoor season.

Jo Clement played well. I'm actually not dissappointed because if he won here, it would be very unrealistic for him to win/go far in Valencia.

Clement was playing really well. He was retrieving everything, going for his shots, taking chances on Tsonga's serve and he controlled his nerves at the end. He got back so many lobs as well. In the TB he was just the more consistent person and after Tsonga hit 27 aces he couldn't find another ace in the TB. It was a really enteratining match and high quality I thought - but Clement was just too good on his own serve (Jo was two points away from the match at 5-4* but then Clement hit an ace to save his ass). What can you do about that? Arnaud reached the QFs of Stockholm (including qualie matches) and now he's in the SF of Lyon. I'm not surprised, but a bit disappointed with the last few points in the TB - Jo had a match point but netted the forehand and that was that. Tsonga was solid for most of the match (especially on serve) but just not good enough when it mattered the most.

Re: The end of the line : the european indoor season.

Thanks for the summary! Well good to know it was Clement playing well and not Jo playing crappy. Onto Valencia then. Good luck there Jo!

Why did he play Lyon... bad scheduling! I hope it's not too serious and that he'll be fit for Paris

Re: The end of the line : the european indoor season.

Jo retired, did he injure himself during the match? I hope he is ok.

I watched on and off when I could, but I'm not sure what happened Spanish speaking commentators didn't help.

Get well soon Jo.
I hope his injury isn't important.
