You gotta admire Jo. You can tell from the start of this match that he was rusty as all hell, probably cursing himself the whole time during the first set. Then he was broken again at the beginning of the second, and after he failed to break back right away, he looked ready to fade into the sunset and take a beating 6-0 6-2 or something like that. But he willed himself back in the match and now it's one set all.

Good that he redeemed himself in the 2nd set. At least he's able to put the disatrous 1st set behind him and fight back. I'm also pleasantly surprised at how well he handled the tie-break. Good luck for the 3rd, now in progress.

It really is too nerve-wracking. The guy is made in steel to come back from a 6/0 that way.

3/3 by the way in the third set.


Edit: New tie break !

Tie break. This match is as tight as it gets. I'm so nervous.

Edit: Trading breaks. Back on serve 4-4

A win from the hell



This guy is something else. I just hope that he doesn't have spent too much energy on the court. It's just a preparation before the big cake after all

He really is made of steel. I love this man, how come as soon as he broke back in the second I knew he was going to win?

Nothing like a horribly tight match like this one to jump-start his engines.

Tsonga/Giquel are playing doubles against Aspelin/Vizner. The French duo just took the first set in a tie-break 7-6(1).

These double matches can help improve Jo's game, especially at the net and get rid of the rust. Allez!

Edit: They won 7-6(1) 6-4 Nice and easy. Well done!

Great to see how Jo again manages to win despite not playing well like what happened in the early rounds at Bercy and a few other times last year. He has a lot of heart and the fact he wins these tough matches even when out of form is a great sign because eventually his form will come back. Should be an interesting match against Richie.

Krystlel made a writing report in his blog about the match against Nieminen :

http://tennis-brain.blogspot.com/200...onga-wins.html

I think it's pretty interesting (more than the headlines from the brisbane site where they talk about a slugfest ).

No match for Jo today, it will be tomorrow against Richard.
