Abysmal breaker from Tsonga. ROS was really poor at the end of the 2nd set. G'luck in the final Fed :yeah:

It really doesn't even look like Fed is trying or is interested in the matches! ….And he keeps winning!

Yeap, never in doubt. Roger getting better and Jo did well in the second set.

When you consider Tsonga hasn't really played tennis for quite a while his level of play was brilliant :)

Fed was solid today, but nothing special at all. In the second set Tsonga played his heart out but Federer didn't really seem to care much and seized the breaker easily anyway.

Bah Tsonga did better than expected.

Hopefully will be ready for AO though, he really was struggling at the end. I arrived at 3-3 in the second and didn't see him win a single point on return.

He won only 7 points on Roger's serve throughout the whole match!

Apart from the fact that JW wasn't able to put a return in it was o.k. I guess.

The result was always NID. I just knew Tsonga would choke in the TB.

This. Much better than his previous matches, if he continues that way he'll do some damage this year.

Tsonga made some nice shots in the 2nd set, but the outcome was never in doubt.

The result was always NID. I just knew Tsonga would choke in the TB.There was no choke. Tsonga made one UE at the beginning and then his returns were awful (but they were during the whole match). Suddenly the score was 5-2* for Federer and it was already over.

Tsonga has an average backhand and is not the best returner and guys who hit the ball early like Federer or Davydenko are moving Tsonga around not allowing him to go for his forehand

Should lose tommorow in a close match.Nah. I think he'll win. At least if he faces Denko.

I guess that's what Tsonga started to do in the second set. He couldn't do anything on Federer's serve, though, so the result wasn't really in doubt.

You can't hope to do much with an ROS like that. Wow.

You mean like he did at AO a few years back? Oh wait, he didn't lose that match. :D

Inconclusive test for Federer.

It's nice to see Federer wanting to meet Nadal more and more in order to learn something about his new powerful HC play. I think he will find easier to return Rafa's bomb serves with every match they will play. He will be prepared in the future and, eventually, a Grand Slam victory will come for Roger in a final against the spaniard.

Let the haters hate, anyway...

SdG got over that loss, as he got over the del Potro usopen pig-demolition.

The rafatards had their holy grail last year after the usopen victory.

And rafa managed to own tsonga , eventually, so no argument to use against Sdg.

Anyway, there's no argument solid enough for such a tard, so better don't lose too much sleep over his sentences...

You've caught the topspinclown virus, which causes one to overlook some of the points ;)

I'm happy with Jo, looks good all things considered, some lovely sneaks into the net, just needs to shake off some rust a bit and ready for AO. More solid return is a long-term task from before

I was not precise, only 7 points on Roger's first serv, 4 on his second.

I watched the first set and Federer was playing very well. Keep it up champ :)

Also, Federer continues his impressive run!

OK match. Not much to be gleaned from this result. Davydenko will present an entirely different challenge tomorrow. This Tsonga just cannot win 7 five setters in a row to win a major. I just don't see it yet.

Good tournament from Jo.

Zagor
01-07-2011, 07:59 PM
Jo really needs to work on ROS,I know Fed's serve can be vicious but he should have handled it better.Jo was finally starting to hold his own in baseline rallies with Fed in the 2nd set,he really let loose with that FH and followed it up to the net to knock off volleys beautifully but Fed's serve just remained an enigma for him the whole match.Would have liked to see 3 sets but overall a nice match.

Tsonga had a good run, but Federer is obviously too good for him.

FedGOAT taking easy, not even at 80% atm.

Good result from Fed, and good to see him shaking out the rust here and winning rather than in the first couple of rounds at the AO :yeah: Also nice final lined up, good for the game to see Donkey/Fed rather than another Nadull/Fed HC final :wavey:

and some people really think this guy can win AO? 0 BP, awful return, first Soderling now Federer.
and did you see that he is looked painful again with his back. He may reach QF at best, but no way he will win AO!
