Okay match for Soda, Tsonga served well, returned terribly and was good on volley. Soderling was too strong from baseline, no break point.

Tsonga good as usual against big servers . Karlovic is dangerous man in return games for this Tsonga

Tsonga looked well rusty to me not that you can judge too much from an exo.

Love the way that an exo makes mtf so excited because it means tennis is back!!

I thought the quality of tennis in the 1st 2 sets was quite frankly unreal, just stunning from both. :worship:

;) we can't ask for much for now.
Soda could make a good match against Federer.

As evident from an exho result :worship: BTW, you really need to consider adding sth about Gasquet to this post, having three posts in a month without mentioning him will hurt your mental heath I'm afraid.

Just gotta love the way Soderking steamrolls both Clownfils and Clownga whenever they meet...

Losing a set to a guy that hasn't played in months is hardly worthy of being called steamrolling :o

This Tsonga is a legend of a returner.

Jo's return is poor, especially for that level of player, but please someone tell me how is Soderling's any better, yet unlike Tsonga's it's practically never brought up.

I guess they are good enough to be Nr 5 in the world :shrug:

Soderling broke 3 times, he is a good returner to me, especially against a strong server like Tsonga.

I meant people who constantly bring up Tsonga's return, their view why highlight one and not the other all the time and do they actually consider Soda's much better. Just curious. I've watched only a part of the second set, so can't comment on this match, but from previous experiences when it was brought up, it was usually not sth I'd choose for main comment of the match.

apparently he didnt have a breakpoint, quite incredible luck to win a set that way
