Nice that Nole got a straight sets win to get him in first place of the group, however Tsonga was disappointing, especially in the second set. Should've won the first, just capitulated on the big points.

Match Point Novak needs to be immortalized in sculpture, like Michelangelo's David. I'm sure that once he's gone to tennis Valhalla, his statue will have his stones as the focal point of attention, and tennis fans will make a meccan-like pilgrimage at least once in their lifetime, in order to rub those lucky stones, like the budda's belly.
However losing the 1st set was tough, it was still only a set, yet at the start of the 2nd Tsonga was pretty much packing and ready to leave.
