This might be last chance for Tsonga to win his Home Tourney (at age 30.) Allez Tsonga

Hopefully Tsonga (doubt it though, Nishikori has his number).

If both play well it should be a good match.

Berdych had his number and look what happened? Playing in France changes things. The only other match I saw of those 2 was in Australia in 2012. Close one that Nishikori found a way to win

Hopefully turns out to be a cracker (Most of the matches have been unsatisfyingly one-sided or uncompetitive). I would say Tsonga in 4 or Kei in 5. Interested to see how Kei weathers the Parisian crowd.

Weren't 2 of the losses in France though? :sad:. One of them being a bit of a choke from Tsonga iirc.

I didn't see the Paris matches, but presumably the crowd weren't nearly as vociferous as they can be on Chatrier. Nishikori is exactly the kind of guy that I could see fading in the face of that atmosphere. Could be important for him to start fast and keep them quiet.

Madrid crowd > Paris crowd and it didn't bother him at all against Nadal last year.

It seems they don't 'love' Tsonga as much as they love Monfils, Gasquet and others.

Kei has enough confidence and a cool head, won't be bothered by the Paris croud.
He isn't Berdish.
