Tsonga is a threat here, he's playing really well with his new babolat, able to put more topspin and looks more consistent/less prone to breakdowns.

Christ, how one dimensional is Dent? I think Tsonga must have felt like he was playing at RG haha, his support was amazing.

Jojo was impressive :yeah:

Seeing this match makes me nostalgic for these matches with a lot short points, abounding with volleys and passes.

Its ashame Dent doesn't serve and volley as much anymore, but it is what it is.

Tsonga looked brilliant out there. Every bit as impressive as Federer. And he wasn't dealing with a clay courter's serve.

I'll tell you who's not a threat, Mugray. He's gauranteed to be steamrolled playing his despicable pansy pushing game.

I'll ask again 5 c notes on Tsonga reaching the semis if he faces Novak. Back up your big talk kid.

Dent would've been triple bageled if it wasn't for his serve.

Not a good enough athlete. Not fit enough. Rubber courts are difficult to Serve and Volley on. Great for passing shot artists though. It cracks me up when people say players like Dent and Isner are serve and volleyers. More like Serve and clean up.

Lopez can serve and volley but he chooses not to because he is an fool with masculine issues and you have to be a man to serve and volley.

Encouraging for Tsonga, especially as he tends to have trouble with big servers. Serve & volley as in coming in on every serve, or even every first serve, is as dead as the dodo.

Dent's level dropped a lot since his R1 match vs Fognini. :( He was making much fewer errors in R1.
The courts are slow and not suitable for his game style.

Serve & Volley plays right into Tsonga's strengths. He's probably the player with the best combination of quickness and power, and also one of the ones with less patience and less sense of tactic and point building.

People were loving Dent like... a week ago xD Now he's a mug? wtf

I like Dent. I don't ever think he makes it far but he does what he can. Tsonga still lookin strong, too
