This is an intriguing match-up between two very heavy hitters. It has the potential to be a complete barn burner.

It's probably going to come down to who performs better off of the serve and return because you can expect both guys to look to immediately exploit the other's backhand as soon as the point starts. It will also be beneficial for either guy to take chances against each other's forehand to create the space on the ad side, so that's another edge to consider and an exciting clash we may see.

Who do you all pick to win this?

Only realised a little earlier just how many matches Sock has won recently. Tough call here. I'll go Tsonga in 3, with no real conviction.

Shame it's not televised, very interesting clash. The battle of forehands aka who can run his bh more? Sock looks promising in the future, but Tsonga will prevail in 3.

In a way, Sock is the new Tsonga. Tsonga is still a better player with a better peak but Sock is in better form. A coin flip.

Tough call on this one as Sock is on the rise and Tsonga has been mediocre for a while now I still Tsonga will eek it out in a tough 3 set dogfight of a match.
