    Kohlschreiber
    Tsonga

    This is why the womens matches should be 5 sets at majors (or at least trialled), more chance for a nervous player to come back and perform a spectacular comeback, rather than losing in under an hour.

    hm if I take a look at the draw & matches so far, I think there would be many 6:0/6:0/6:0 or 6:1/6:1/6:1 matches. don't know if thats what everyone wants to see.

    Some I'm not surprised came back like Monfils and Fish, and Tsonga, but Seppi can go **** himself.

    Clement was supposed to win that match.

    that´s interesting. i don´t think 2 weeks would be enough time if also women play best of 5 sets from the 1st round. but they could do it from the quaterfinals. that would be amazing.

    ESPN said this was Tsonga's first comeback from 2-0 while ATP says second, what's the deal
