Well...
Fed looking sharp the 1st 2 matches, and Tsonga looking weak.
3rd match, Fed looking weak, Tsonga sharp.


So now? Who?

I love both, whoever wins, please, win the tournament :cool:

I expect both men to raise their games here due to the quality of the opposition on the other side of the net.

Fed in 2 will be the bookie favorite, but Fed in 3 would be a more comfortable prediction.

Who knows... hard one considering their respective forms this week. A coin toss, but I'd say Tsonga....not sure if Fed is willing or motivated to want to win Doha again.

And judging by the scores in their QF matches today, I suppose there's a reason why Fed could lose this.

Federer cant get a lot worse than today on this type of surface, and I think he will play much better tmrw. Hope so at least, he is a terrible player to watch playing (and winning) ugly.

Federer in 3 is my prediction for now, but I wouldnt be surprised if Tsonga nabs this one. He really seemed to want to beat Roger desperately the last time they played and he will catch a less than spectacular Federer in a ATP250 tmrw. Thats a good deal I think. Either way, feel it will be three.

PS: Enough of this matchup already ATP, dare you to put these two in the same half again :eek:

These two play for the 4th time in 3 straight tournaments.This has to be a record.If the conditions are windy u have to favour Federer.Tsonga struggled a lot against the likes of Jaziri and Cipolla in the wind.This match could go to 3 sets though just like in London.

Fed will have to lose to Tsonga again . Now it's the time Rog . Don't fuck this one and then lose when it will be mattered

I think this match is much more important for Tsonga than for Federer. I'll be very interested to see how Tsonga plays tomorrow, I believe it will be an indication of how much of a threat he'll be this year at the slams.

Is Tsonga ready to make a move? If he doesn't win tomorrow, I'll doubt it very much. He'll probably remain in the Top 10, but he won't be a threat for the top guys.

If Fed doesn't manage to improve his return of serve, he'll end up losing this. I expect/hope for him to be able to do so.

I love tennis. But sometimes it seems like it is the same matches again and again, and unless it is two of the bigwigs (Djokovic, Nadal, Fed), it can come a bit redundant.

That being said ...

Federer in 2.

Federer will be up for this one. He really wants the Aus Open and this is his perfect preparation and really has a mental edge over Tsonga. Fed in 2 or 3.

At first I thought Feds would lose to Kolya back in the opening round but now he proved me wrong, I say Feds wins in 3.

Probably, I think that too. But I also think Fed wants to play that match.
