far from his best even if nicolas played very good during the 2 first sets, jo can play much better than that

his serve has to be more effective(23 % in the first) and has to improve his backhand for his next opponent who will be tougher(andreev or soderling) so better to be ready to fight hard. Appreciate his attitude on the court,trying to fix his game,got angry about his tennis but stayed focus and calm to take the advantage.Very positive.

Allez jo, need more matchs and wins.

Default Re: Clay season Thread 2008

When I arrived on Sunday, I saw Jo practicing with Berrer and he looked very grumpy, was not moving well at all, I was really worrying and wondering if he was feeling fine.
And today I watched his match against Mahut. You've seen it too, so I don't need to comment on his game. ^^ Great fight, but... that was pretty shocking for good parts of the match!
People were really excited to see him though, even after this subpar performance in the first set they kept cheering for him (while I was just facepalming, TBH), they loved it too when he made his usual celebration after the win, etc.

As for the doubles match, he wasn't really brilliant, but you can blame his partner for the loss.

He looks very tight to me though, in training, when people want autographs, during the match, etc.

Only had time to see the tail end of the match, but it was worth it. It was heartwarming to see him win when most people had written him off after that disastrous first set. The important thing is that he put that bagel behind him, started on a clean slate and prevailed in the end. So proud of him. Well done, and good luck in the tougher second round.

Default Re: Clay season Thread 2008

I see now there was an interesting article about Jo in L’Equipe yesterday, but I have no time to translate it (I don’t have even time for a summary today, sorry):
Quote:
Tsonga a atterri
Difficile vainqueur de Nicolas Mahut (0-6, 7-6, 6-2), le Français a remporté hier son premier match sur terre battue. Décryptage. HAMBOURG – (ALL) de notre envoyé spécial

JO-WILFRIED TSONGA avait déjà passé quelques tours de qualifs à Roland-Garros. Mais l’histoire retiendra qu’il dut attendre le 12 mai 2008 pour décrocher son premier succès sur terre battue sur le circuit principal de l’ATP. Ce fut assez long (1 h 54’), parfois douloureux (jusqu’à 3-3 au tiebreak du deuxième set), mais cette victoire sur Nicolas Mahut devrait forcément en appeler d’autres : « Oui, ça représente quelque chose de particulier, reconnut Tsonga. D’abord parce que ça faisait longtemps que je l’attendais. Mais aussi parce que j’espère que c’est le début d’une longue série. » Retour en questions sur cette grande première.
POURQUOI UNE « BULLE » AU PREMIER SET ?
Parce qu’il fallut vingt-cinq minutes à Tsonga pour trouver son équilibre, au sens propre du terme. Constamment agressé par Mahut, il passa six jeux à déraper, glisser, piétiner, boiser. « On aurait dit les premiers pas de Bambi », s’amusait presque son entraîneur Éric Winogradsky. Novice sur la surface, le finaliste de l’Open d’Australie vit en ce moment sa période d’apprentissage. « Pour moi, sur terre, le plus difficile, c’est de bouger, admet-il. Je maîtrise encore mal les changements de direction. Comme je suis puissant, je perds de l’énergie et du temps. Vu que je n’ai aucune expérience, je passe toujours par un petit temps d’adaptation. En plus, avec son style de jeu, “Nico” me perturbe plus qu’un gars qui remet la balle. Mine de rien, c’était un match piège. » Bien cadré dans ses schémas tactiques (« jouer sur terre comme si j’évoluais sur dur »), Mahut ne se priva pas de le bousculer. Avant de perdre progressivement le contrôle de l’échange.
COMMENT TSONGA A-T-IL RENVERSÉ LA VAPEUR ?
En se montrant fidèle à sa réputation de guerrier, c’est-à-dire en cherchant l’ouverture. Chez Tsonga, « se battre » ne signifie pas uniquement « mouiller le maillot ». La dépense physique cohabite systématiquement avec le jus de crâne. « C’est ce que je trouve formidable avec lui, dit Winogradsky. Il cherche en permanence des solutions. C’est son côté “fighter”. Et c’est un truc sur lequel il pourra toujours compter. »Hier, la clé passait par un petit trou de serrure : une légère modification de sa position en retour de service. « Même si c’était une option risquée, parce que Mahut possède un gros service, il fallait en passer par là poursuit "Wino". Petit à petit, Jo est parvenu à marquer des points sur ses jeux de retour. Il a même obtenu des balles de break (deux) au début du deuxième set (à 1-0). Comme son service s’est amélioré en cours de match, il a repris pied dans la partie. » Tsonga estime que sa réussite sur terre battue passera par une attitude irréprochable : « Je ne vais pas y arriver en claquant des doigts, résume-t-il. C’est en persévérant, en gagnant des matches à l’arrache que la confiance va revenir. » Le nuage australien est crevé. Tsonga a décidé de mettre le nez dans le guidon.
SON GENOU LE HANDICAPE-T-IL ?
Non, trois fois non, lorsqu’il dispute son match : « Une fois sur le court, je n’ai aucun blocage et j’oublie tout », assure-t-il. Et oui, mille fois oui, pour ce qui est de sa préparation. « Je fais moins, reconnaît-il. Je ne fais aucune muscu lourde ou violente sur le bas du corps. Et j’ai des renforcements spécifiques supplémentaires pour le genou. Je fais peu de courses, pratiquement pas d’intermittents. J’évite toute situation de blocage. Évidemment, ça me dessert, a fortiori avant un Grand Chelem comme Roland-Garros… » Winogradsky va plus loin en suggérant que son joueur, tel un étudiant débordé la veille de l’examen, est contraint à des impasses. « Oui, il y a des séquences de jeu que l’on ne peut pas travailler à cause du genou, confirme-t- il. Mais je préfère le voir sur un terrain, même à 80 % de son potentiel, que coincé à la maison. Le problème de la terre battue, c’est qu’on ne peut pas tricher. Il y a des basiques incontournables. Alors, évidemment, ça rend notre tâche plus difficile. Mais aussi plus exaltante. Pour un coach, ce côté casse-tête est très intéressant. » La conjonction des planètes Genou et Terre battue a modifié l’orbite de son joueur : « Jo sait qu’il ne peut pas passer en force comme il l’a fait en Australie, dit-il. À la limite, en ce moment, il a presque tendance à sous-jouer. Le défi va être de trouver le juste milieu. »
PEUT-IL RÉUSSIR SUR TERRE BATTUE ?
Sans le moindre doute… s’il reste fidèle à sa philosophie. « J’ai l’impression que Jo a trouvé sa voie, estime Mahut. Il remet croisé en revers, il se décale en coup droit et il a toujours son énorme service. Son seul problème, c’est le déplacement. Mais ça se règle avec le temps de jeu. Le plus difficile pour lui, comme pour tous les attaquants, sera de garder le même état d’esprit pendant cinq sets. Il ne faut pas lâcher le fil conducteur de l’agressivité. » Une crainte que ne partage pas le principal intéressé. Plus un match avance, plus Tsonga se sent pousser des ailes : « Si je joue en cinq sets et que je commence à me sentir mieux au bout de deux heures et demie, je me dis que c’est plutôt bon signe ! » Rien de tel qu’une première fois pour vous booster le moral.
VINCENT COGNET
I love Wino's Bambi comparison about Jo's first set, it's so true. And I can confirm he was hardly running when I saw him in training, it was so weird, he was just walking, I was already wondering if he was going to pull out! But it didn't show during his match, they're just being extremely careful in training, apparently.

Default Re: Clay season Thread 2008

Here's a very, very raw summary of the article:

The article says it was his first win on clay on the ATP main tour (even though he had already won some qualifying matchs in RG), so it means a lot to him. He's been waiting for it for a long time and he hopes it's just the first one of many wins.

Why a bagel in the 1st set?
Wino says the 1st set reminded him of Bambi's first steps. Jo admits the movement on clay gives him a hard time. Since he's pretty heavy, he wastes time when he has to change the direction. He needs some time to adapt in each match because of his lack of experience. That's why Nico is harder to play for him than a guy who will just keep the ball in play for a while and give him more time to adjust. It was actually a tricky match for him.

How did he manage to change tack?
Because he's a warrior and never gives up, not only physically, but also mentally. When things are not working, he always tries to find a solution. Wino admires that a lot. Against Mahut, the solution was to change the returning position a little bit. It was risky because Mahut is a great server, but it worked, he started winning more points in his return games, even had a couple of BP at the beginning of the 2nd set and since his own serve was getting better and better, he eventually managed to get a foothold in the match. Jo stresses this attitude is essential on clay. He knows he has to be persevering, to never give up and at one point he will start winning these close matches.

Does his knee hamper him?
Not at all during the matches, Jo says he completely forgets about it on the court. But it's a huge problem for his preparation. No work-out of the lower body, he hardly runs, avoids any situation where his knee might "lock", etc. Wino says there are entire areas of the game they can't work on because of the knee. Like a student who has to skip over some topics in his revision. Wino prefers to see Jo playing at 80% of his abilities than stuck at home, though. But one can't cheat on clay, there are some basics and it's not easy to work in these conditions. It's a great challenge and a very interesting "brain-teaser" for him as a coach. Jo knows he won't be able to get past by sheer effort like in Australia. He's even rather "underplaying" atm. He now needs to find the right balance.

Can he do well on clay?
Without a doubt if he sticks to this attitude. Mahut says Jo has found the right way for him to play on clay, his only problem atm is the movement and he will get used to it. According to Nico, the main issue for Jo will be to keep his focus during 5 sets, it's the same problem for all the attacking players. But Jo doesn't really agree about that and sounds quite euphoric after his first win.

Default Re: Clay season Thread 2008

The match report in L'Equipe, I'll make a summary later (unless somebody else does it in the meantime, of course ):
Quote:
Tsonga veut y croire
Malgré la défaite contre Söderling (6-2, 7-5), le Français estime progresser sur terre battue.

QUELLE QUE SOIT la surface glissée sous ses pieds, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga n’a jamais vraiment mégoté sur la frappe de balle. Mais le Français est tombé hier après-midi sur un spécimen qui ne souffre d’aucun complexe en la matière. Pas vraiment réputé pour son trop-plein d’humilité, Robin Söderling ne lésine pas non plus sur les balles qui lui arrivent entre la hanche et l’épaule. Son dieu, c’est pan ! Services et coups droits claquent comme des coups de fouet. Si les trajectoires restent dans les limites du court, l’adversaire n’a plus qu’à se mettre à l’abri. En attendant une éventuelle éclaircie. Tsonga patienta ainsi jusqu’à 6-2, 4-2, 40-15. Trois points plus tard, il obtenait sa première balle de break. Il la fit fructifier, revint à cinq partout mais finit par subir le pressing du Suédois. « J’ai longtemps eu l’impression de me faire “éclater”, reconnut le Français. Mais ça venait aussi du fait que je lui offrais trop de balles faciles. Une fois que j’ai pu jouer mon jeu, le combat s’est équilibré. Et, physiquement, j’étais plus costaud que lui sur la fin. C’est peut-être un train qui vous passe dessus, mais j’aurais bien aimé jouer un troisième set pour le faire dérailler. » Tsonga quitte pourtant Hambourg le coeur léger. Il ne souffre plus du genou, apprend progressivement à maîtriser les arcanes de la terre battue et se satisfait d’un niveau de jeu franchement… médiocre. « Quand je vois ce que je peux réaliser en ne sentant rien et en ajustant très mal mon jeu de jambes, je me dis qu’il y a vraiment quelque chose à faire, dit-il. En ce moment, j’ai l’impression de ne pas mettre une seule balle où je veux, y compris quand elle reste dans le terrain ! Mais plus je jouerai sur terre, plus je serai efficace. » C’est la raison pour laquelle il ralliera dimanche le tournoi de Casablanca. « Je vais là-bas chercher des matches, explique-t-il. Quelques victoires seraient bonnes pour le moral. En tout cas, ce qui est certain, c’est que je prends un plaisir énorme sur le court. Un plaisir tel que je me sens réellement capable de faire un truc à Roland-Garros. »
Reçu trois sur cinq
Son optimisme tient essentiellement au format inhérent aux tournois du Grand Chelem. « Franchement, il y a un monde d’écart entre les matches en trois sets et ceux en cinq, lâche-t- il. J’ai l’impression que ce n’est pas le même sport. Il y a moins de surprises en Grand Chelem, c’est beaucoup plus exigeant, on ne peut pas gagner sur un coup de chance. Le physique tient aussi un plus grand rôle. Ça m’avantage, je crois. » Le showman qui sommeille en lui depuis l’aventure australienne et sa première sélection en Coupe Davis en Roumanie ne demande qu’à émerger de son hibernation printanière. « Le fait d’attaquer Roland- Garros avec cette envie incroyable va forcément me transcender, conclut-il. Pendant un set ou pendant plusieurs matches, ça, on verra… Mais ça va être quelque chose de très spécial. » À J – 10 du début des Internationaux de France, le fauve est déjà dans les starting-blocks.
