Good match. Very entertaining aggressive tennis. Shame it didn't go the distance.

Almagro 1/11 BP conversion.

Mugro :haha:
Classic the missed volley during one of the BP, Andreev-esque

Almagro is always so negative and it's just frustrating to watch him play. Awful attitude all in all even in the mix of good play.

Good composure from Tsonga today in the TB and after getting broken back. The pearl earrings though are :lol:... soon we'll start calling him the Boy With the Pearl Earring. :p

Almugro strikes again. What a horrific BP conversion, should've won the first set in half an hour.

Blew up at the end of the second, really lost the plot.

Great first set, good start to the second but the standard slipped towards the end.

Mugro really doesn't know how to think clearly on big points. The only BP he converted was a lucky net-cord during one of Tsonga's bluff approaches to the net.

Willy did such a good job to keep holding and hanging in at the start when he was under constant pressure on his serve.

Fun match but again the bp conversion killed him.

more than his mentality, almagro's failures have got to do with his inconsistency.......he plays well only in patches.......i never saw him play well for an extended period of play.......

i don't think his forehand is that good either.......when your forehand is not your best shot, chances are that you will struggle against top players.......

Well at least Almugro converted 1 BP!
Mental midget? Mental microbe...

Well, that certainly explains why Murray is doing better than Almagro :p

I didn't see this match but it says alot that Tsonga had a 48% first serve percentage but won 71% of his first serve points. Almagro first-served at 65% and ended up with the same 71% points won. So Tsonga must have been tremendous during the rallies, no?

Well, that certainly explains why Murray is doing better than Almagro :p

murray covers up for his weak forehand with his athleticism and backhand which are much better than almagro's but still it's being proven time and again in murray's case too that his forehand is a real liability against big guns and players on a hot streak.......

a solid forehand would help murray finish so many points with so much ease, instead of running side to side pushing the balls back.......

Wow Nico, losing vs Tsonga on clay must be a real low for you :worship: if you're unable to beat him on clay how do you expect to grab any top 10 victory on clay this year??
Oh well I guess it doesn't bother him too much so

Great logic. I'm sure if you re-read your post you'll find the faulty logic in there.;)

A good win for Tsonga. :yeah:
Almagro once again proves why he'll never be a top 10 player.:rolleyes:

Credits to Tsonga, he played well on those breakpoints. Anyway two players celebrated the winners and the crowd was going crazy, really nice to watch.

Almugro is a decent clay courter, this is a great win for Tsonga who expresses dislikings for clay
