Jo :worship:

I was hoping for something easier.

I can't lie, i'm so happy for Jo. He knows how to win a 5-set match.

Lost here in R1 to Mayer last year after taking the first two sets 6-0 6-2.

Nice recovery though, Jo :yeah:

well-deserved win Jo :yeah: shoulda been alot easier.

Electric atmosphere, both guys feeding off the energy, ending with Aussie crowd chanting Tsonga's name like crazy. Tsonga has to be the most charismatic player on tour :hatoff:

It was never in doubt as soon as it got to a 5th set. Jojo :yeah:

Don't get me wrong Petzschner folded like a tent, but what fucking balls from Tsonga.

Apparently he's got something wrong with his lower back, hopefully he can keep playing

It is always good to see "Picasso" (what a disgrace to art and humankind that this kind of person owns that nick) out of TV screen.

Jo sorted out his serving and net play as the match went on.

Very few aces though so wouldn't be a surprised if his back was a factor.

His volleys in the final two sets were sensational, especially on big points.

I hope not - he's really had more than his fair share of injuries. He deserves a good long stretch where he's not sidelined because of one thing or another

Great match :yeah: I think Petzschner made a tactical mistake that didn't change the pace in the 5th set, Tsonga was very eager but had some physical problems too, I'm not sure whether it was his right groin or something else in that area.

He said it was his hip. Even though he didn't want to talk about it, he sounded quite pissed.

Close one, Jo. Well fought.

Tsonga is a five-set magician! Unbelievable!

And Petzschner?? He sucks at grand slams, although he's able to produce some nice tennis in these matches... but: in 4 of the past 6 slams he lost after being up two sets to love - I mean, this is ridiculous!

Great result(?): Petzschner is 57, never did anything in AO and did not play unbelievably during 2 sets.
so?
logical conclusion: abysmal performance from the most arrogant frenchman, close second to Monfils' jesteries. Don't worry, french journalists will talk about "heroism" "the next Noah", "he is unstoppable".
:haha::haha::haha::haha::haha::haha::haha::haha:
Forget about Soderling, Murray, Nadal, Federer, Djokovic. They all won in straights against players as good as Petzschner.

What? Nah, he's not that old.

Nadal also needed 5 sets (and a little gamesmanship, I might add) to beat Petzschner at Wimbledon, remember? :D

so he has ZERO chance to win the Australian Open, whatever he tries, you idiot.

And you're less of a moron for that rant why excatly? Because you delight over injuries or because you've proven that he won't win a slam unless fully fit. Congrats.

even fully fit, he failed. Injury is the excuse of losers. I guess you must be prone to injuries.

Do you have a point aside from trying to move away from your original post that portrays you as a jealous imbecile? Not that what he's already achieved in what few tournaments he's played for his age is anything to scoff about, but he'll still have ample chance to build on it. Perhaps if you wish him health, it will come true. Surely, you don't need him to be incapacitated for your prediction to come true. Alternatively, perhaps you're considering breaking his legs so that you're sure he can't win anything.

What's up with both Gael and Jo going 2 sets down in R1 though? :lol:

Petzschner is horrendous in 5 setters it seems, but good fight from Tsonga if he was hurt
