Verdasco led 6*-4 in tiebreak, but Tsonga came up with some marvelous shots. In 2nd set Nando couldn't handle the disappointment of losing that first set, he basically resignated.

Default Monte Carlo R3: [4] Tsonga def. [13] Verdasco 7-6(7) 6-2

Some guys have the clutch gene, and others don't. That's pretty much what this match comes down to. Tsonga's backhand may be poor, his technique may not be fundamentally sound, but when the going gets tough, he can rocket out those serves and huge forehands. Tsonga is in the QF and hasn't played a good match yet, so you can't argue with the results.

One of the worst serves ever at *1-5 15-30 in the second set from Verdasco. Hopefully someone turns that into a gif.

Verdasco .

Gotta feel sorry for Pirata for liking this guy. Messed up my draw challenge as well

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

What a complete clown :-)

Verdasco was much the stronger in the first set, drawing so many backhand errors. Nice disiplined tactics, very effective ....... but misses all 5bps, lost the tiebreak from *6-4, and then tanked.

Starts second set with slice halfway up the net, doublefault, wild backhand. The discipline went as well - all first set he was just endlessly sending it to the Tsonga backhand, but he just stopped moving, carelessly slapping at the ball, just trying to get off court asap.

Should have been a second set bagel, Tsonga had double bp at 4-0 but got overexcited.

I had well and truly switched out of the match by that point but I am intrigued.

Nice fight in the second Nando .

Tsonga was just awesome in the TB . Nothing else can be said.

Yeah, he did. His technique was all messed up on that serve

He was trying to guide it in, instead of actually hitting the serve. He hit it right off the tip of the racquet and it literally floated to right around the back of the court.

Nando's serve has really, really declined. You can tell he has no confidence in hitting it. Because he's scared about double faulting.

Unexpected win. Really bad match though, holy hell. Best part was the frame serve and his forehand that clipped the net .
