Good for Tsonga!
I think almost everyone thought this would be Murray's time for a big Slam result especially his tuneup event win in Qatar. Oh well, I guess tuneup events are misleading. ;-) Especially one in Kooyong.
tsonga was a tough 1st rd opponent for murray but i thought he would pull through in 4 sets...oh well, we'll see how he progresses in 2008...
I haven't seen Murray play a whole lot, so I could be wrong, but I don't see what's so great about his game!?
He uses the drop shot a lot, moonballs his groundstrokes from time to time and seems to have a decent serve and net game. He seemed neither spectacular to watch, nor does he seem to be having fun himself. So what gives?
I think the hype surrounding him stems from the British media and their premature coronation of him. Why is he any more of a slam contender than say Mikhail Youzhny or Richard Gasquet?
im extremely happy with the result as one of my coaches is tsonga's cousin and have been introduced to tsonga through him
tsonga is hilarious and just a genuinely nice guy and im happy he won this match
What excuse does he have losing in the first round (if you ignore Tsonga's perf. for a minute) of the AO?
Just my 2c
