    YE#1 vs. defending finalist.
    Tsonga knocked out Nadal last year in the group stage, so this one might be a toss-up.

    Many think he tanked, and believe me, Tsonga is in very poor form...

    Djokovic in 3. Loses 1 set to get more practice.

    Will be at the O2 for this one. I expect an easy victory for Djokovic.

    Pulling for Tsonga, but Djokovic will probably win.

    Edit: Hard to believe Tsonga led Djokovic 4-1 at one point. Since then, he's gone 1-7 vs. Djokovic.

    Easy win for Djokovic.

    Tsonga is playing poorly and has only won 1/12 matches against top 10 players this year, that's an awful record to enter the WTF. It's a shame he wasn't able to build on his 2011 performances.

    I'm hoping for a match. Three sets or atleast a tight tie-breaker. But Tsonga's form ain't been great.

    Something seriously wrong with Tsonga after the French open match point loss to Nole.

    He injured himself at Toronto, lost to Klizan at USO and didnt show any fight against Ferrer at Paris.

    I am thinking he will be 0-3 in the group.

    I also feel Berdych will qualify from this group.

    True, Tsonga and Berdy are in poor form. This half is really weak.

    Djokovic will use a combination of intimidation and scare tactics to pull this out in two sets.

    Jo has just started his collaboration with Rasheed. I think he needs some time to adapt. He probably won't win a single set this week.

    Thanks, now I remembered, i think Delpo was a little injured in that match, btw he's much better CC than Tsonga.

    Iv changed my mind, tsonga will beat him and then beat murray then beat berdych, all in straight sets and murray will join him in the semi, he'll play federer in the semi coz ferrer will win that group and then beat murray in the final in straight sets.

    You heard it here first.

    same here. 2 sets for ND. Tsonga is in poor form and I can only see him beating an out of contention Berdych.

    He loves the big stage though, for all we know he could win an epic 3 setter on his way to an undefeated tournament win

    I'm just hoping for a high quality match with Tsonga bringing his aggresive best and Nole with his acrobatics.

    Tsonga looks fairly comfortable on this surface, both players look far more comfortable than murray and berdych did earlia.
