The 6 games in the 5th set last night were superb from Jo and he won it rather than Waw gifting it to him. If Jo can give the crowd something to cheer then they can get right behind him but it will be tough. But all the pressure is on Djokovic because a QF is a superb result for Jo here and a great confidence boost for the grasscourt season where he will be deadly.

Tsonga is in QF what is big result for him i think, because clay is still by far his worst surface, even bellow average Djokovic won´t loose 3 sets to TSonga with home crowd on clay. I expect better Nole to show up, Djokovic in straight sets i think.

Gonna be tough as the french hate him more than Simon and that will probably affect him a bit. Still, I think he will pull out the win in 4 as long as he doesn't play as awful as his last match and I don't think that's possible.

If he can draw some energy from the crowd, Jo could maybe take a set. But he's still a clay mug of sorts, he will not win this. He should head out to Queens quick. He actually has an outside shot of winning Wimbledon or the Olympics on grass.

Who voted for TSonga in 3?:D

They met in Rome recently - Novak´s form is similar to Rome, he didn´t played nothing special there, made F, because nobody else than NAdal in his section was good enough to beat him, the same is here at RG, in his section TSonga - it will be just like Rome, 1 set close, 1 set probably with 2 breaks and 1 set with 1 break - something like 7-6,6-2,6-4, if Tsonga will win set i would say well done Jo. That´s it, Novak in 3 or 4, no other option here.

Here's a collection of this idiots best posts.

Tsonga will reach the final of course. Spent Wawrinka, out of form Nole and spent Berdych/injured Delpo.

Tsongaa in that final set could challenge Nole as long as it isn't damp conditions.

That final set was the best I've seen Jo play on clay in a long time, maybe ever, and he showed a lot of mental strength in the 5th to get a break after memories of last year. He will be a monster on the grass/fast courts in the 2nd half of the year.

This Jo will win Wimbledon!

Embarrassing.

Novak will win comfortably in 3 sets. The fact Wawrinka was in tears after the match sums it up entirely. He gifted Tsonga the win.

Thankfully Tsonga winning gives Novak pretty much a bye as Tsonga has no chance of beating him.

Good that he plays on centre court so that he can learn how to move better here. And also a good training with the crowd against him. The court and the crowd should be a good training for a semi-final against Fed. Tsonga is not a real clay court player. So Nole should be able to do it. But he still needs to play better than he did against Seppi.

Tsonga on QF: All the pressure is on Djokovic
Ticker - Monday, June 4, 2012

Jo Wilfried Tsonga, who has reached the quarterfinals of Roland Garros for the first time, says that the pressure will be on world No. 1 Novak Djokovic when they face off Wednesday.

"I think for him it's tougher, because he need to win," Tsonga said. "Me, for the moment, I did my best results for the moment, so for me, it's everything's gonna be positive now. Of course, I will be free on the court because I have nothing to lose against this player who is No. 1 in the world. And anyway, the pressure will be on him."

They don't love Murray either. We saw how the French were with Murray today against Gasgay and Murray after he dropshotted Simon. Nole knows what to expect.

Murray's problem was very different : it was a lot about the way he behaved against Nieminen.

But of course the French public will cheer heavily for Tsonga as he's the most popular player in France :shrug: (and Djokovic for some reason doesn't seem to have big popularity in the French public ... but doesn't have the reputation Murray has got this year -please note that I strobgly disapprove their behaviour).

And it's been shown several times (against Fed and already Tsonga in the past) that Djokovic doesn't like crowds cheering heavily for the opponent.

But Tsonga should give him the errors :shrug:

The poll seems spot on. Don't think Tsonga has a chance today playing Novak. Expect novak to play well today as that is what generally happens with top players coming off a match they barely scraped by in the prior round. Expect Novak to dominate this match and win it easy. Three straight sets most likely. Perhaps a fourth if Tsonga brings his best on.
