The score may be misleading but it wasn't that easy for Jo. Sure, there were no doubts Tsonga would win, but Andreev came up with a great fight! Most of the games lasted for more than 5 minutes and the whole match ended only in 2 hr 40 min.

One of the best matches today!

Andreev could have won both the first two sets, but Tsonga played the big points well. Igor never does.

Solid match. Tsonga looked in cruise-control at 6-3 and a break up in the 2nd set, but the set got dicey when Igor broke back. The tiebreaker came down to Igor dumping some points on serve and Tsonga holding on to his serve points. Third set was competitive until Tsonga broke again

Like Agrajag said, Tsonga played the big points well and Andreev did not

Apparently Andreev hit a massive forehand at some point. Bard Gilbert said it was maybe the biggest he has ever seen.

Yes he hit a huge one...the speed gun apparently registered it at 118 mph. I don't remember the actual shot, but it was pretty dang big

Terrible match. Andreev is a shadow of himself and Jo backhand is useless.
