This is going to be an epic clash. May the best man win.

Tough call here. At least Tsonga will not choke against Nadal the way FatDave did several years ago.

Any bets Clownga will screw this up :facepalm:

H2H in favor of Tsonga but that was in Paris 2008. Hmm.

Nalbandian is such a strange player, he wins the toughest matches and then he loses the easiest ones. I'd have to give the edge to Tsonga here, just because he's playing with more confidence than Dave right now. Then again, he's prone to mental lapses too.

Tsonga, but a closely fought one. (That is, if David actually cares)

A good match up for fit Dave

Jo in 3 probably, but really hard to say.

oops, misread the draw TT

Not that I'm disappointed, actually a rather interesting match. Who knows what Nalby will bring, but I feel pretty confident that unless he does one of those rare very good performances that Jo will win =)

nalbandian on a good day should have little problems with a clown like strong however as you never know which nalbandian is going to show up on any given day i am going to say the argentinian in 3 sets with one tiebreak somewhere.

Hope Dave will send Kinder Bueno back to his chocolate factory
Dave in 3 hopefully

Main question is how many fuel left in Nalby's tank after last night match against Fixarevich ... If he is OK physically than he can cause lot of problems to Tsonga tonight and in that case this match is around 50/50 IMO
