Tsonga :bigclap: 9-2 in tie-breaks this year, two setpoints saved in the tie-break, the first one with casually backhand which landed on the line. Tursunov at the first moment thought he had won the set :D

Piggy Roasting time :devil: Nadal will play the loopy shit he played against Dimitrov (like he almost always does) and get blasted by Tsonga.

No, Nadal will play outstandingly well, I have the feeling he'll play better in the end of the week.

Bloger had 6:4 in the TB and somehow he lost the next 4 points in a jiffy shanking all over the place. He also had his chances in the second but as usually he burned himself down. Tsonga was dead calm on BPs and SPs.

Nadal always plays as bad as possible, but within chances of winning. Tomorrow he will raise his level.

Not that Jo Wilfried is looking good, this is so far an ugly tournament.

Tsonga didn't play a good match today. He needs bigger and more snappy auditorium. The Rotterdam crowd isn't snappy but at least in the quarterfinal the stadium should be full up.

Are you there mimi? Tsonga didn't do it today :p

Somebody please buy Tursunov a brain!

Not a single first serve in at the tie-break and outstanding attempt to volley on BP in the second set :worship:
What a genius Mitya is!

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

I think Tsonga actually played very well today. By this thread you'd think Tursonov played like crap when he in fact probably played his best match of the year (though not saying much). He showed variety with slices drop shots and volleying that he usually doesn't, but couldn't come on top in the big points. And I know Nadal always takes it as easy as he can in early matches, but honestly Tursonov today seemed like a harder matchup for Tsonga than even a somewhat in-form Nadal.

Hope Tsonga beats Nadal tomorrow. I don't know why but I find Nadal doing so well on hard court pretty weird.

Both Nadal and Tsonga are not playing well, but I think that Tsonga will win tomorrow.

Well tomorrow he plays the biggest draw in tennis, so yeah, the stadium will be full ( as it has been for all Rafa's matches :D )


Awful match.

One thing is almost sure:if Nadal plays against Tsonganator as badly as he played against Dimitrov,he'll get manshamed(especially on that surface).

:lol: Rotterdam's crowd is one of the most boring but it's a nice tournament from an aesthetic point of view (I don't think about the spectators :p).

No it isn't, you just see the VIPs alot on TV and streams. In fact many young people stand with beer and stuff in the ring underneath the boarding :lol:

Why they aren't shown? In Costa do Sauipe sometimes are shown fragments outside from the stadium when some random people go - who knows where :shrug:

Awful match.

Wrong.

Nobody cares about Nadull. The night-time match at those indoor tournaments is always the fullest.

You've got some nerve calling this match awful, eh?

It seemed like Jo couldn't stay on his feet in the first set but once he found his footing and Dima wasted his chances, it was obvious the second set would be a runaway.

Tursunov should of won the first set, after that there was never any doubt
