No thread? Really entertaining stuff in the first 2 sets, after that de Bakker didn't believe he could win anymore.
Tsonga did seem to suffer from a leg/back injury and wasn't fresh as usual.

Still great experience for the rising Dutchman.

Good payback victory for Tsonga after the Barcelona debacle. Still needs work on return game but keep fighting & improving ma dude! :cool:

Is de Bakker the guy so many people on MTF said was as good as BYE when he played Rafa in MC? :devil:

I agree Ossie. Seems some people have a compulsive need to downgrade anything achieved by the players they hate.

Tsonga looked a bit uncomfortable at the end, even had a few tears in his eyes, whether it was because he was happy or hurt, don't know.

Allez Jo :yeah:

Rafa's tournaments on clay are filled with BYEs. Just give him the trophy now.
