I think it's a good time for Jo to tank. He's got a few good matches under his belt, he doesn't need this really. Just sit back and let Isner serve his way through, hold quick and drop a service game . Then Jo can Get prepared for the open, but he's got a tough draw with Murray potentially in the quarters and Fed in the semis
Well he didn't tank, but he lost without taking it serously. Isner defeats Tsonga 6-4,3-6,7-6. Like i said, Jo has got match preparation for the Open, and now has a few days rest to get ready. This was a good thing in the end
Started to watch Tennis more and more recently. Actually excited for The Open since it's on at times people are actually awake in America.
Yeah, i was kinda like that earlier this year. I used to just watch the slams, I was a casual really. I've always liked the sport, just never followed it. But i started to watch more after RG this year. Wimbledon was just around the corner at that time, so i watched Wimbledon every day. Now i follow the sport a lot more, watching and following more tournaments, studying it a lot more, read up on some history and stuff.
I've been a Tsonga fan since 2008 Australian Open. I loved watching him play, and he's got a great personality too. I've been a Slava fan (her in my AV if you don't know) since RG this year after she be Li Na. I love the way she played, and i became a fan. Then i saw her personality on and off court, and that made me an even bigger fan. I knew about her before that due to her doubles success, but never payed attention to her till RG this year.
It's a good honest sport. If you follow the open this year from start to finish, you will probs get more into it. Also, choosing a player or Players to support may help make it more exciting too
