This could be a good match. Getting ready to start.
2-1 first set Tsonga
Did Tsonga lose weight?
Doesn't look like he lost a pound to me. He looks as stout as ever.
Tsonga 5-3 first set.
What will he look like in 20 years after he's retired and not playing tennis anymore? :shock:
JW's a guy whom I really believe more and more to be playing a game not suited to his temperament and talents. (just imagine if Becker were a 2hb baseliner or if Edberg had stayed in the Borg clone mold instead of breaking it and doing it his way.) 80's and 90's; JW could have been a devastatingly aggressive one handed bh serve volleyer with incredible improvisation skills in front of the net. This era and conditions, his game gives him consistent results but also limits him to his current position in the pecking order in this peer group. I think reasonably at most another slam final from him.
tsonga's game is perfectly suited for nowadays, his only problem he's often wounded (maybe because he's a bit to heavy, a la Taylor Dent)
Yeah, I think if he lost 10 pounds or so his knees would thank him.
he looks a bit lighter to me.
anyone know if he's injured, possibly his back? first twou rounds he seems to be wincing often
Jo-W up now 2 set to 0 against Seppi. The Italian has been finally able to broke Tsonga's serve and serve for gaining the second set, but Tsonga react quickly to tie that set and eventually win it at TB. He play the big points very well
Tsonga closing in.
Tsonga serving for the match.
Anybody know what kind of racket Seppi is using? It looks like a Babolat but closer looks at the frame look like it has a box beam and not the typical Babolat aerodynamic beam shape. Not familiar enough with Babolat to know if they even make a box beam racket.
Pro Kennex I believe. I could be wrong though.
Ahh thanks. I think my eyes are playing tricks on me. Now that I look at it, it has the yellow, white, and black, but not the same pattern as the Babolat aeropro drive or aerostorm.
