X-Man made it hard on himself, but he was the considerably better player throughout the match. Malisse's cross-court FH is a rifle. Tsonga snatches at balls too much with bad footwork, and collapsed ahead *5-4 in the second set.

Tsonga isn't the same player he was when he first burst on the scene. Whether it's the injuries, the racket change, a difference in mentality, but he's just not got the same authority with his movement nor his shotmaking.

Clownga is just another top 20 player now with wasted potential and a weak mentality. The best he can hope for now is to play well in France like Mugfils and get his results there. Too bad, I liked him a lot when he first got big :sad:

so few words about his defeat. Just imagine if Gasquet loses tonight, how much different it will be. MTF :retard: at their best, all sad and stoooopid because one the usual :retard: gets ridiculed by a completely finished 30-year old guy who won nothing. THis big fat arrogant useless dumbass should retire before further humiliation.

Jo is finished. Injury ruins another future GS winner's career.

He was no GS winner, it was all in his head. Lots of mugs made GS finals, he is just another one.

Translation:

You are a bandwagoning bitch who only supports players when they are winning and drops them when they lose.

LOL at Groove dude all over Tsonga. Hey buddy i got a nice little campfire story for you, it goes a little like this...it's not cool to bandwagon out of form players just cos thye are slumping. Never been cool, never will be.

Jo's career ended at IW 2008. That injury ended him. He was everything. HUGE HITTER, Flair charisma. He had IT. He was a Huge Pebble on the beach and now he's a grain of sand. So sad to see how far he has fallen. He was even on MCA at the AO.

What's cool is showing support to players you enjoy watching, regardless of ranking or form.

Fed's Mate, there is a reason we voted you ACC Champ of 2010, you bandwagoner. I guarantee if Tsonga wins Miami, you'll be the first in line to blow him.

Yeah i never said that. You only like Tsonga cos he sucks right now. You think it's cool. Like supporting garbage like Guccione and Hernandez.

You all voted for me because you're all jealous haters. It's as simple as that . Thats what that contest is about pretty much. You have NOTHING on me.

If Tsonga wins i will be happy. I want him to be a success like any other self respecting person does.

You know a player is in trouble when he loses in straights to Malisse and everyone feels sorry for him instead of laughing their asses off. Poor Tsonga.

X-Man is a very good HC player, and deserves his credit, so I 100% disagree with this statement. This result isn't a big surprise.

Tsonga made a lot of wild errors :tape: good win for Malisse.

They just made an itw in L'Equipe with Tsonga (who else, they only care about him anyway) in which he tells he wanted to be back to his former playstyle, taking more risks, making more winners even with few more mistakes and play a tennis "no limit" like in 2008. Timing was perfect as usual.

what else is new? making wild errors is practically clowngas gameplan.

Tsonga circa 2008 was the only one that really clicked. So its not a bad idea.

truth of the matter is that both of these guys happen to be quite talented.

losing to a great player with superb talent like malisse is nothing to be ashamed. tsonga has had bad luck with injuries and hopefully he'll get back to form. i woudln't write him off like many clowns have done
