    2 clean return winners from Tsonga.

    This is the time, this is the place to break Berdych.

    Awesome FH winner ROS from Jo, can play more loosely when he's up a break.

    Soderling used to do that on every changeover. I don't know if Berdych normally does it, though.

    Great win for Jo. I'm sure it'll feel like he should have more than 250 for that past week.

    Congrats to Jo, great match. Berdych was playing very well (could have been a routine 2 set win for him) but after Tsonga gutted out that 2nd set he kinda deflated.

    did he complain at the end of the match? didn't see the handshake with the umpire.

    berdych visibly shaken sitting down for presentation ceremony.. he even has a fresh haircut.. how sad!

    lol

    Was a great match. The backhand down the line in the tail end of the 2nd set, was what turned the match around for Tsonga. From that moment on, he played at a different level than Berd.

    He did say something to the umpire when shaking hands. Had Tsonga waiting for 2 seconds or something. Weird how the crowd didn't pick that up, usually the're on a player booing him for like a minute when he's whining or complaining about a call.

    great win for tsonga... saving MP vs tomic (QF) and vs berdych (F) ! :)

    who was the last player to win a tournament after saving MP in multiple matches ?

    i have the following ones since 2002:
    • 2005: Moodie saved 4 MP's in SF (against Nieminen) & 2 MP's in F (against Ancic) in Tokyo
    • 2004: Davydenko saved 1 MP in SF (against Youzhny) & 3 MP's in F (against Rusedski) in Moscow
    • 2002: Hewitt saved 4 MP's in 2R (against Srichaphan) & 2 MP's in F (against Agassi) in San Jose

    anything more recent ?

    EDIT
    querrey (LA 2010) was the last one, cf. this thread:

    Looking at the draws for Memphis and Marseille, it's ridiculous when you find out which is the 500 event.

    Really good win for Tsonga.

    Should give him some confidence winning tough matches like he has this week.

    And Tsonga goes in the double digits: 10 titles (vs 8 for Berd). Berd should be mad. He really let that one slip away from him.
