    I was joking a bit in the poll options, but I'm really interested for this match.

    Only match in the quarter-finals with top 10 players. The winner of this match has a good chance for the finals and a possible title.Tsonga played two finals in Paris and won one, Ferrer lost three Masters finals, one on HC.

    They played two times, never on hard court. Ferrer won first match in Rome 2010 and Tsonga got revenge in Wimbledon 2011! No doubt, one of the most important matches in their careers!

    Your call?

    Ferrer tanks first set. Tsonga tanks second. Third set will be a struggle of who can out tank the other.

    Your poll options are brilliant :lol:

    I went for Tsonga tanking in 3.

    I'm torn between who I want to win because I like Ferrer and it would be great for him to win a masters. On the other hand I'm not a huge fan of his game, and I really like Tsonga's game..

    Wait, if you pick Tsonga to tank in 3, doesn't that mean he loses? :D

    I thought tsonga hasent yet qualified for the world tour finals. Purposely loosing would be madness.

    Tsonga has been spraying UEs everywhere this tournament. He's only been winning because his opponents have been easy. I think Ferrer has a very good chance of winning this match. I'd put it at 50/50 right now, but I'll say Ferrer in 3.

    Nah Jo-dubs is in London.

    Going for Tsonga in this one - felt before the tourny he could win it; he really should now given the dropouts

    anyone that mentions tank and ferrer in the same sentence might need a check-up...he'll want his first masters, don't see why jo wouldn't want it either..after all, why would either one be confident they would make up for the loss by winning london?

    I'm just kidding, I know that David was one of the greatest fighters in tennis. But the word "tank" has marked this tournament, at least on the forum...:)

    Berdych lost, so we can say that this match is "final" before the final match. I love Janowicz, but title here would be too much...

    Just think Ferrer is too consistent. Jo's errors will creep in.

    Is this the real final?

    I really can't imagine any of the remaining players, that is Simon, Janowicz, Querrey, Llodra winning the title.

    Since Ferrer has never won anything big, I'm rooting for him.

    Querrey is playing really well, and I wouldn't count Simon out in his home country. These 2 are definitely the favorites though!

    Ferrer takes it easily 6-2.

    Who said that Tsonga wouldn't tank in front of his home crowd? :lol:

    Tsonga had beat Djokovic plently times when he was 1.0. Can't be that pathetic.....plus he humiliated Nadal and denied Federer.

    If they didn't slow down Paris....Ferrer won't be beating Tsonga.

    Pathetic attemt by Bercy Orgnanizers to slow it down for the top 4 players. They skip and tank this event anyways.

    They're still pathetic nevertheless. :razz:

    Yeah and I thought Indian Wells was slow.
