Tsonga could easily have won in 2 if he didn't start fannying about making mistakes while up a break. Lost the TB 7-0 too :lol:

Simon didn't play his best, which was understandable as he had a long match yesterday (his second serve in particular was short). Jo played a hilariously bad tiebreak though. Simon still managed to break Jo's serve despite Jo serving really well (19 aces in total and 71 percent first serves in).

Simug is a pusher,he will have long matches from time to time but the match was always on Tsongas racquet.

Tsonga still up and down (that tie-break my god), but always a good sign to beat Simon on this kind of surface.

Will savage Monfils tomorrow and hopefully he'll take the title sunday.

Deserved scoreline for the match. Tsonga could have won in 2, but he did well to take it into the decider (that was a tiebreak I won't be forgetting so soon). It could have gone to a tiebreak in the 3rd as well had Simon not missed a sitter of a volley when break point down in the penultimate game.

Tsonga could go all the way in this tournament.

Expected. Tsonga just cannot lose to Simon on hard courts.

4-1 H2H for Tsonga now. Jo is just able to dictate all of the points, and as long as he plays anywhere near decently, he's going to win this match, just too much power, and too much pressure on Simon. Jo was up and down today, the tiebreak was awful, he really lost his focus in the second set and it looked like Simon may be able to take the match. But Jo started getting a bit better, Gilles just wasn't that great today, missed a few too many easy shots. Tsonga with 19 aces and 77% first serves won, 70% serve percentage, and the damage he did off the serve, is the deciding factor in this match.

Congrats to Jo Willy on the victory, but he'll definitely need to show more to defeat Gael.
