    Never in a Grand Slam, only times it's apparently happened have been Davis Cup against Lleyton Hewitt and Masters Cup against Nalbandian

    Wowee that was not a great forehand. Tsonga serving great, Federer can't read it and keeps getting pushed back. I was watching Djokovic- Tomic most of the time, but what I've seen of the last coupla sets reminds me of the Berdych match last year heavily.

    LOL So Fed makes basically no UE the whole match. And when he needs it the most, he starts shanking.

    Game over. Goodbye Roger.

    If Fred loses before the final of the USO this year will Annacone be fired?

    His best chance to break was that game. He saw 3 second serves, and Tsonga fell down on the first point. It's all over. Crown Nadal now.

    Federer is 178-0 when winning the first two sets in a GS. Streaks always have to come to end sadly

    Tsonga's serve is literally impossible to break like this, Murray couldn't touch it at queens until the tie break.

    I think if anything the French is where he will remain a better contender for the coming years.

    In fast surfaces he might be able to hold serve when he's on but if his form is off, he can be broken and might find it very difficult to break back if the opponent is very solid.

    On clay even if he gets broken, he still has chances to get himself into his opponents games by simply slugging it out especially on clay.

    Fed to hold here and then go for the break. If not he's on the first thing smoking out of town.

    Tsonga isn't famed for choking, so I am hoping he will hold his nerve

    tsonga to serve at 5-4. *sigh* this is actually going to ruin my day. i would have preferred roger to go down in 4 or straights as opposed to 5 after being up 2-0..

    Not a big Tsonga fan but if he keeps this level of play he could do the whole thing. We will see now.

    Hoping Tsonga Gets Injured

    Anyone else hoping that Federer wrong foots Tsonga on an inside out forehand winner and Tsonga falls to the grass shattering his ankle and has to default.
