Jo's playing poorly again, Julien is playing pretty well.

Looks like Julien is going to take it in the tb.

Re: Spring '10: First up Marseille, France

Julien was serving for the match at 5-4 in the 2nd set and completely threw that game and the set away. 3rd set was pretty even. Jo had a ton of bps and half chances, but couldn't do much with them. Julien was too strong in the TB. Great win for him.

I could sorta may be possibly cut Jo some slack cos he hasn't played in 3 weeks. But the first 1.5 sets have really pissed me off. Was really hoping Jo would finally defend a title here. Oh, well.

Re: Spring '10: First up Marseille, France

I didn't really watch it but still very disappointed. I believe Julien and Jo will meet again next week in Dubai first round. Jo will win then.

sooo... I don't know what I was smoking when I posted this, Jo will not play Benneteau in Dubai R1; he will play Llodra, the new Marseille title winner.

Re: Spring '10: First up Marseille, France

Any news about Jo's health? I saw Truc posted earlier today in the Dubai main draw thread, he might not play due to illness

His comments after his defeat in Marseille:

Tsonga : «J'ai tout raté»

21/02/2010 | Mise à jour : 11:50

«J'ai eu mes chances, j'en ai même eu beaucoup mais j'ai tout raté. Je ne fais pas un mauvais match mais j'ai coincé dans les moments cruciaux. J'ai dû faire exploser la case des fautes directes sur les statistiques. Dans le troisième set, il est touché physiquement. Si c'est un match en cinq sets, il y a de grandes chances qu'il ne m'échappe pas», a confié Jo-Wilfried Tsonga après sa défaite en demi-finales à Marseille contre Julien Benneteau (7/6 5/7 7/6).
He says that if it were a 5-set match, he would most likely win. For a guy with such a long list of 5-setters to his name, he can't seem to get enough of them.

Re: Spring '10: First up Marseille, France

Well, Jo is not certain to play Dubai, he got a stomach bug Saturday night. He's not due to play on Monday so he still has some time to get better. but in my experience it takes at least 3 days to completely recover and go back to eating regular food when you get that stuff. with the flight and all I'd say his chances are slim.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga est également incertain. Touché par une gastro-entérite dans la nuit de samedi à dimanche, le Tricolore a reporté son départ aux Emirats arabes unis où il doit jouer contre Michaël Llodra.

Re: Spring '10: First up Marseille, France

Thanks Hope he gets better soon

I like the attitude if it went to five, even though it's funny given he was a 5th set virgin until recently

Re: Spring '10: Dubai, UAE

Dubai R2 vs Ljubicic is on right now and there is a stream.

I like Ljubo, nice backhand and seems like a genuinely nice guy. Jo seems to have recovered fine. a bit boring match so far, especially after watching the end of Murray-Tips.

Re: Spring '10: Dubai, UAE

Jo's BH is getting better and better

What a sloppy volley there
If they continue serving at 70%, this could be all TBs
