    A possible preview of the 2012 AO final. There will be forehands! There will be service bombs and hot aces! Hopefully, there will be no MTOs. May the best man win.

    I took Tsonga in 3.
    Delpo hasn't looked on his game lately though the serve looks pretty good.

    del comes back with a bh slice on the baseline - deuce again

    and again ... deuce #3

    Tsonga survives #3-deuce game, 4 aces help a lot.

    Some good rallies out there, but almost all finish on Tsonga's errors

    Jo slyly sneaks to the net, but his volleys betray him so far today and Delpo takes another easy service game, 3-2.

    Than an ace, and a double-fault from the frenchman to give delpo a set point at 6-5.

    And Delpo takes it 7-5 on a tiebreak. Nothing spectacular from him, it's been all on Tsonga's racket so far: from great to miserable.

    DelPo is just hitting pretty much in the court center, guess he doesn't trust his shots completely yet.

    Delpo is just another top 20 player now, he is playing low level of tennis, not even interesting player anymore.

    Another top 10 I'd say. He should be there at the rnd of the year.

    Juan hasn't lost a deciding set this year, I think he's 5-0.
    No spectacular play though from either.

    What are you talkin about bud...
    The level of the current Top10 is at a new low if you take away the Top4.
    The rest is pathetic.
    Tipsarevic, Berdclown, Fish, Tsonga, Monclown, Almugro, Melzclown, Simon, Soderling.
    Now tell me who of those clowns are more talented than Delpo?
    Berdych is the 6th in the race??
    what did he do, except winning Beijing?
    This is the worst Top 10 ever (not counting the Top4)

    Whenever I tune in, Tsonga is always getting consecutive aces. Man.

    true dat ... first time i've seed delpo throw a tantrum after losing serve :eek:

    Del seems increasingly tired. maybe it wasnt the best idea for him to play doubles this week ........ but that was a good idea for possible use as such in decenber davis cup ........ otoh jowillie seems very energetic with lots of fire still

    Juanito would have easily won this match if he moved any decent.
    his movement and fitness are beyond pathetic at the moment.
    There´s a lot to do in the off season, as soon as he improves his movement, his confidence in terms of shot making will be back considering he´ll have more time to prepare his shots.

    Triple MPs. Tsonga's serve is bailing like a boss.

    Tsonga wins 6-7 6-3 6-4. It was a fully deserved victory and I can't wait to see him in London. Del Potro, to my disappointment, just isn't the player he once was and it's looking more and more likely that he never will be again.

    Nah,I think he will eventually get back to form. He is lacking confidence in himself right now. It's to be expected considering how much time he was out with injury.

    Tsonga is a beast this year, and indoors clearly suit his game more than Delpo's (it was frenchman's 5 indoor title from 6 finals, while Juan was olnly in one indoor final before, losing to Davy in O2). So not a result to be ashamed of for the argentine. Did he really look tired? He has a tough draw in Valencia: Tursunov, then either Anderson or a qualifier, then probably Tsonga again.
