Good win. Nothing special, but he gets it done.

Hopefully he has enough left in the tank to challenge Novak.

Couldn't watch this properly (horrible stream), but seems good. Very strong serving, quick match... just what the doctor order before a clash with Novak.

Too bad Jo will still play doubles today, he should be resting. He definitely has a chance against Novak.

Feliciano hit 4 DF. 3 of them in the same game (out of 5 points played) to give Tsonga the only break of the match :worship:

Good win for Jo. Last thing he needed was for this to go to a 3rd set.

08-01-2012, 03:18 PM
At least Mugliciano had some kind of form, unlike recent times.

I saw Mugpez hit 3 DF in one game. Him and Verdasco seem to set highscores in the amount of DFs in one game to give away breaks :facepalm:

One mini break in TB, one break in the 2nd set, that's how men win.

Come on, Jo! You can do it.

Good for tennis, although its a pity that he will be tired by the time he will face Novak :(

Although, its astonishing and strange to say it, but I dont think Clownga was seen in the last 3 matches

^^ He should be fine. He said today was a good match, that it was great to play against Lopez as it was more about tennis skills and less of an endurance contest. Plus he won his doubles game with Llodra, so he'll actually be motivated and "full of positive energy". :yeah:

Good for Tsonga, as he was able to recover enough to win this rightfully in straight sets :yeah: As long as he's not too tired, injured or sick, he should always take out overrated Lopez in straight sets.
