Stan could either straight set Tsonga or lose in straights. He's abit like Safin in that he's literally almost unplayable when he is on, but he can also just mentally lose it.

The thing Tsonga has going against him is that he won't be able to 1-2 end points quickly. Although he's shown some good clay tennis lately, he still really hasn't faced a true clay court player who can hit the ball heavy and stay in long rallies. Berdych and Nishikori both hit the ball relatively flat, and aren't really as consistent off the ground as Stan is.

Jo would have no chance if he beats Stan and has to face Djokovic in the final. Against Murray he'd have a chance. Stan at his best would be a formidable opponent against Murray or Djokovic in the final.

True but you can't say Nishikori is less consistent than Stan off the ground :confused:
Jo was 1-4 against Nishi before the 1/4. He's serving like a beast these days.

Heat wave in Paris today. 32 ° C in the shade but there is no on Central. The second semi-final is likely to play in full thunderstorm

Both players in shades of white today and Stan still with those funky shorts. Very hot here today, if this goes the distance then fitness could be a factor. I think Wawrinka has looked the better player but he's also the player i wouldnt pick to handle the pressure of having a crowd against him. So this could go either way!
