Re: Madrid R2: Giraldo routines [11] Tsonga 6-4 6-3

Giraldo couldn't do much wrong. Solid, powerful, nice shot choice.

Tsonga just gave up though. He had the firepower to damage, but just not mentally there atm.

Amazing stuff. Giraldo defended with more consistency than I've ever seen him do, and backed it up with the trademark ROS and BHDTL bullets from a meter behind the baseline. Tsonga too impatient at the end, but overall he played good enough to routine a guy like Seppi.

Giraldo played an incredible match, he ended up with 3/3 on BPs I think.
Tsonga was disgusting during the entire match, apart from the first 2 or 3 games. The decline is official.

What a champ Giraldo is, definitely someone to look out for in the future.

Expected result. Plain and simple :shrug: Tsonga is in a slump and he doesn't look like he'll get out of it at least until the grass season

It's very sad to see, that every time this year the opponent has been playing lights-out tennis and not missing, Tsonga has been noticeably very tight due to pressure. Mental strength cannot be found.

I don't even think Tsonga played bad...he was just outplayed. Giraldo playing some fine tennis. 2014 is definitely interesting.

:sad: Jo really desperately needs some good wins to get some confidence and drive back.
