    The first time Federer has been broken. I think we will see a few more.

    This is why Tsonga is so dangerous.. When he starts connecting, he can beat anyone

    Federer keeps going to Tsonga's forehans on the serve costing him points

    That game to get broken was terrible. Rog looking bad, may lose to tsonga.

    Okay, I'm beginning to entertain the possibility of Tsonga winning this match.

    He's found some shots in this rally here. Let's see if he can keep those going.

    Tsongas backhand so stiff compared to djokers and murrays I hope it holds up but doubt it.

    I'm glad he got broken to be honest. Would rather him not have gone into the Murray match (if he gets there) not being broken. Those kinda streaks only build pressure. Or maybe I'm just paranoid.

    I'm beginning to worry over Fed Errors. He doesn't look like a guy at ease.

    Federer's problem is, he can't even let this match go to 5 sets. He's not 25 anymore and a long match could hurt his semifinal/final prospects. I bet that will play on his mind if Tsonga takes a set or two.

    Decent, but he needs to play better than that in order to dominate this match.

    Roger is really hitting his forehand cleanly tonight. Serve is a little shaky.

    Sure, 'cause we can determine who deserves to win after 8 games.

    Federer doesn't look like someone who can challenge Murray's current form, even if he wins this match. Too many errors and inconsistent play.
