Good job Jojo. Going for it when Kendrick was serving to stay in the match paid off nicely

(Edit the title in the 3rd set please)
Great match!
I missed the last set :confused:
Jo's in a better shape than I thought at first... Hopefully he'll make a good Wimby.

Damn 4 sets to love that must be a record.

Tsonga breaking for the first time after 2 hours and a half to win the match...

Ugh... :o Very disappointing.

Overall it was a good match by Robert, didn't get broken until the final game of the match... :(

Tsonga did well to win both tiebreaks and to get the decisive break of serve. Congrats...

didn't get to watch the match since my ISP sucks and can't stream right now.

How was Jo? Ballbasher? All-serve mug?

How was Jo? Ballbasher? All-serve mug?

He was OK for the first match, could use some more net approaches mixed in. Played important moments well, otherwise both were holding serves relatively confidently, except for those two games in 3rd and 4th. Most importantly, he looks fit to go the distance

That's good.

Hope he at least gets to Murray.

Tsonga returns like a drunk on grass.

Add this to the long list of matches at SW19 that Robby could have won if he wasn't a mental midget :)

Will Tsonga finally play to potential at Wimbledon?

I've thought it could be his best major, but he always manages to be injured etc.

You're right though philisophicalarf - his return sucks on grass.

Exciting match. Jo played well. Robert played well too but couldn't keep his level from the 3rd set up through the 4th.

Nice to see two hard hitting, hard serving players go against each other, you know there will be action. Congrats to Jo on the win.

his returns suck everywhere. In fact, fellow big servers have always been Jo's kryptonite.

decent performance from jo, same as last year vs golubev. With verdasco out, he should make the quarters
