Beijing- ATP 500- 4th seed after Djokovic, Monfils, Berdych. Berdych and Djokovic doubtful, so he can be 2nd seed.

Fucking finally!!!!! He didn't win anything for 2 years!!! Finally :sobbing:
09-25-2011, 05:30 PM
Yes, that was a great week, with amazing 3 setters against Mahut and Ljubo
10-08-2011, 10:32 AM
He is on the semis of Beijing as seed 1, plays Berdych. He is 4th seed in Shangai
10-09-2011, 08:56 AM
Lost to Berdych, 4-6,6-4,1-6. He plays Nishikori or Haase on R2, Melzer or Ljubo in R3, Fish or Dolgo on QF, SF against Murray
10-09-2011, 08:58 AM
After his loss to Nishikori on his first match on Shangai he moves on to Viena, where he has a tough draw, on R2 plays Haase or Nieminen, two great players on indoors, QF against Fognini or Malisse and SF against Stepanek or Davydenko. If he gets to F he will play Melzer or JMDP.
He defeated Nieminen, 3-6,6-1,3-1 RET, and then Malisse, 4-6,7-6(4),6-4. He plays Brands on SF, and then Anderson or JMDP
10-29-2011, 02:17 AM
Yungos knows that Jo is building steam for a Australian Open challenge. Yungos believes that the 2012 Australian Open will make Tsonga
10-30-2011, 07:38 AM
Jo on the final of Vienna :D, he defeated Brands 6-2,7-6(4), Now he plays Del Potro on the final, let's see if he can win his first match against Pony(0-3 H2H). !Allez Jo! ;)
10-30-2011, 02:28 PM
Jo won set 2 against Delpo, lost 6-7(5) the first, wins 6-3 the 2nd. !Allez!
10-30-2011, 03:34 PM
He won the title :bowdown:, 6-7(5),6-3,6-4, he was a break down on set 2, but since that moment JMDP played awful. He was lucky this week, as he was in trouble also against Malisse. He hit some 1 handed BH down the line passings that were :hearts:. His serving was also great, he hit 25 aces :worship:. Also, he is up to #7 in the Race for London, and he is now really near :woohoo:. If he hadn't lost that match against Nishikori :o, he would be even fighting for a Year End Top-5 spot, as he is much better than Ferrer in indoors. Aniway, great year, and hope he seals his qualification for London in Valencia :rocker:
This was his 7th title, fifth on indoors( Bangkok 08, Paris 08, Marseille 09, Metz 11 and Viena 11)
10-30-2011, 08:57 PM
His quarter in Valencia:
DEL POTRO(6)- TURSUNOV
If he gets past this section it will be most probably Monfils or Dolgo on SF, or even Raonic or Cilic. Final would be most probably against Ferrer.
Very good R1, as Marti is a young claycourter spaniard, then if Querrey or Gulbis play well that could be a test, and he could meet again Del Potro on the QF. !Allez Jo!
11-04-2011, 06:06 PM
Not a good week, i suppose he is building up for Paris ;), but if he had gone a few rounds further he would have sealed his London qualification( now 7th). He lost to Querrey 6-7,2-6
Good draw for Jo, as GGL or Q, and then Almagro or Davydenko, and a rusty Djoko, is a very good draw, as he loves Paris.
11-07-2011, 07:19 PM
Well, Jo plays tomorrow GGL, on last turn of centre court
11-08-2011, 07:25 PM
He won, 6-3 6-4, he did 30 winners and 30 UE's, had a tough job serving( saved 5/6 BP), and recovered from 4-2 down on set 2. Converted 3/4 BP, he played really agresive, but i'm not seing him really playing good. He should beat Almagro or Seppi. !Allez Jo! :)
11-23-2011, 06:20 PM
He reached the final of Paris Masters, lost to Federer 1-6 6-7. He rose to #6 in the world:eek:, very impressive considering he was #19 or #20 at Roland Garros. On Masters Cup, he lost to Federer 4-6 in set 3 :mad:, his H2H is now at 3-7, 2-5 this year:o. He beated Fish 7-6(3) 6-1:worship:, altough he is not playing good, there's a shot of qualyfing if he defeats Nadal. !Allez Jo!
11-26-2011, 06:46 AM
He beated Nadal :woohoo:, 7-6(2) 4-6 and 6-3. He was really nervous, only good was the serve on sets #1 and #2 where he didnt broke Rafa once:o. On set 3 he broke Rafa early, and he broke him again at 4-2. Then he choked serving for the match. did 3 DF,and Rafa broke:rolleyes:, he won the match by winning Rafa serve to love. Next up is Berdych, huge chance for Jo:),
He is not playing that great since Metz, so it has been great that he has been able to win Vienna, reach Paris F and WTF SF.
11-26-2011, 10:54 PM
great job Jo:yeah: :cheerleader:
11-27-2011, 08:05 AM
He defeated Berdych 63 75 :worship:, he advances to the final in his second Masters! Impressive:), his 10th win over a Top-10 this season(10-12 in W/L...), 55-23 record now this season in W/L. He will play Federer again :(, H2H is 3-7.
11-27-2011, 08:21 PM
Jo :sad: But he did manage to make Roger work for it :D
11-28-2011, 05:50 AM
Great year for Jo, 2 titles & 4 finals this season, plus SF at Wimbledon + QF at the USO. Also he won 10 matches against top-10's, very good. A pity that he couldn't defeat Roger at the end of the season like he did on Wimbly + Montreal. Their H2H is now 3-8 for Roger, 0-3 for Roger since USO.
He has 2 wins this year against Nadal [ Queens QF and WTF RR], and Federer [ Wimbledon QF and Montreal R3]. Ended up leading the tour with most aces, 825. Also, he had 198 D.F, 62% 1st serve in, 78% points won on 1st serve, 53% points on 2nd serve. He has saved 66% break points. He won 86% games on service, and 66% points won. He won 28% points on opponent's 1st serve, 49% points on 2nd serve. Converted 44% break points. He won 21% return games, and 36% return points won.

Jo just defeated Monfils on an exho on Reunion Island :), 64 75. Here a link(in french), with the description of the match
Seems like it safe to post in here and to say thank you Gillouthebest for your infos and updates :worship:
Why I didn't post? Believe it or not, but every time I posted in this subforum - Jo lost in next match :eek: I am too supersticious, so I banned myself from here. :lol:
Hope it's safe to post here during hiatus :scared:
