    Last RR match for Murray and Tsonga. Murray leads the H2H 6-1, with their last meeting at Wimbledon this year which Murray won in 4

    Tsonga is no form to beat any of the top 8.

    Murray in 2.

    Poor Tsonga. Well, at least he got a set today. He's gonna be swept off the court by Murray though.

    His play in the latter half of the season has been poor. He's in a way lucky to even be at this event. A shame as he's the kind of guy who could thrive in these conditions - indoor, great atmosphere. Last year he played really well, what a contrast this year..

    Murray in 2. Tsonga has stated that he doesn't like playing against Murray and if there is going to be a time where he beats him again, it's probably not going to be now, judging by the way he's playing

    I like both of them. I'd like to see Andy in three, but if J.W. wins I'll be happy.

    Now confirmed as the night match. Murray will know exactly what he needs to do to qualify.

    If Nole wins in straights then Murray only needs to take a set v Tsonga to make semis.

    Tsonga acts like Murray is an umpteen time Slam champion. :lol: He gives Murray more respect than he does to the likes of Federer, Nadal and Djokovic. I know Tsonga is afraid of beating Murray in front of the British crowd. Tsonga hates to be disliked by the fans.

    I think Tsonga is just giving Murray the respect due to a guy who has a 6-1 H2H against him. That's all.

    To be fair, it's just a product of what has happened in the first two matches - Tsonga has looked poor and now has nothing to play for, Murray has looked good....

    It'll probably be some kind of 62 61 beatdown by Murray. JWT has got nothing to play for so can go either way. He could also lose meekly to Murray just to p155 off Berdych to knock him out (provided Nole beats him off course).

    Uhm, no. if Djokovic wins he has something to play for. Then it's Djokovic on 9 points, Berdych at 3 and Murray at 3. If Berdych wins, it Djoko and Berdych at six, and Tsonga no chance.

    Tsonga has nothing to lose. Murray's got to prove himself to Judy and 17,000 Englishmen. Tsonga in 3.

    Sorry you're right - Nole needs to win for Tsonga to have a chance - either way; as of right now, Tsonga has something to play for.

    No, the cupcake draw is for his majesty in the group of cake. Tsonga is the only relative weak clog in this group and compared to Tipsy, he is a terror.

    Well, as long as Murray wins a set, he'll qualify. So I'm sure he would be OK with that result.
    Rozroz: Tsonga would have to win in straights to qualify. Good luck with that.

    If Jo wins in straights then he makes semis - any other result and Murray makes semis.

    Murray needs to win a set to qualify.

    Tsonga needs to step up, he needs to realize his true potential.

    Tsonga will come out strong and blitz Murray, thereby robbing Muzza of a semifinal spot. The score will be 6-3 6-4.

    Murray walks the first set, melts down in the 2nd then scrapes through in the 3rd

    That's it.

    So Djokovic and Murray qualify (duh).

    If Fed wins a set against Del Potro tomorrow, we have a Federer-Murray semi-final match and Djokovic-Ferrer probably.
