Win win all round. Not the greatest match but Tsonga's backhand smash and volleying were excellent. Lucky he had the insurance break in the 3rd and didn't need to serve it out.

Nadal can now go back to Spain and prepare for DC final.

Hilarious ending. That last game pretty much sums up Nadal's game. Tsonga was clearly nervous, and instead of capitalizing on this, Nadal folds.

Good win for Tsonga though. He will play Ferrer in the SF.

Tsonga volleying like a goat, hitting the BH like a clown. The serve made the diffrence.

Tsonga was BY FAR the better player.
He could have break Nadal a thousand times but just win it in a tight three setter.
The last service game from Tsonga with 3 DF was very strange and bad.

The match overall was ok, but Tsonga did too many errors, otherwise he would have won easily in two.
On this surface, he is better than Nadal.

He hit winner 46 winners (45 errors)
nadal hit 14 winners (!), 24 errors.

Match time: 2:42

Tsonga in semis with chances to reach the final.

Too good from Tsonga, some epic volleys in there as well. Nadal was never in this event, DC is more important to him.

Novak might easily lose to Tipsa tomorrow. He looks seriously spent. Nadal is in that place too. The season ended after that brutal showdown for them.

Good for the game :yeah:.

Tsonga has a chance against any of the players in the other group that can qualify and he can also beat Federer. A title contender surely.

Nadal got tight on his forehand in tough spots, has been like that in important matches throughout the year.
