Wish he didn't have to meet Ivo so early- but I would love to see Misha be the one to get out of this section- even though I like Murray and Gasquet as well.

Misha won 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 7-6(4) :) Seems like a tight match but at least he got through it!

Watched most of the match and it sure was a tough battle. Seppi offered high speed and some solid tennis but then experience took charge ;)

Great job for pulling this one through Teddy :yeah:

Nice result to wake up to - well done Misha :)

Sorry about the all-Russian thing Annie :hug: Just think at least you will have someone to cheer for in the next round whoever wins or loses :) That is how I try to look at it when two of my favourites play each other.

:awww: I hate those all-Russian clashes

:hug:

Let's look at it this way, hun.... Better like this, then one of them were out of the draw already ;)

At least one of the 2 will make it into the quarters!

Am going to watch tomorrow morning, but haven't decided who to cheer for though :awww: .... very tough descicion

:smooch: Good luck against Tsonga :hug: DAVAI TEDDY !!!!!

(according to the AO website there's a resemblance between him and Mohammed Ali, so beware of the uppercut ;) )

I didn't see the match because I was at work :sad: I was trying to follow the livescores as much as possible, but it is hard to get the real "feel" of a match from that. I understand that Tsonga was "on fire" though, so maybe it was just one of those days :shrug:

According to the BBC website which updates match reports during the game, they said Misha had to have some strapping adjusted on his ankle, but I don't know if that was just precautionary or something more serious. I hope he will be OK.

Misha :sad: Tsonga was just too good in this match. Misha needs to work on developing a strong first serve...he was forced to fight in nearly service game. Also, he's gotta work on his overheads :help:
But anyways, this was a very good tournament for him, got him back into the top 10. So keep working hard, Misha, and stay injury free :D

Tsonga has just been on fire at the AO :fiery: I don't know why because he sure didn't use to play like this :shrug: May be new coaching :unsure:
