Re: Monte Carlo R1: Jo-Wilfried Tsonga def. Jan-Lennard Struff 6-4 6-4

Average from Tsonga, but at this point I have to be satisfied with every win.

Struff made too many DFs.

Not the best performance from Jo, but a win is a win :)

Great for the game. Tsonga seems playing well - but his serve needs a much higher FS%.

Routine, as expected.

Tsonga usually plays well in Monte Carlo. He'll probably reach the QF and lose to Djokovic.

I think it might be the knee. Since he injured the knee in 2013 his FS% went down dramatically and never recovered. I can't see any other explanation than a physical limitation. Before his average was around 70%, now it's almost allways sub-60%.

Normal match by Tsonga. He has a great chance to reach QF.

Monte-Carlo organizers have very tough situation:
Federer and Nadal are lock on CC tomorrow. There is two matches left and they have to choose between Wawrinka - Monaco, Tsonga - Goffin, Monfils - Dolgopolov, Fognini - Dimitrov and Simon - Paire.

Wawrinka is last year's champion so I think he'll be allways on CC. Monfils - Dolgopolov is the one with the most entertainment value so they should pick that.

Fair enough, that could be the right explaination. Indeed, his FS% has been at an all-time low in 2014 - even at Toronto actually.
