I think even with Chardy playing like he was today, one of the top three would have beaten him.

I think Jo will beat Gasquet, but as you said, in maybe three tight sets. Tsonga has been playing very well this tournament and is always a threat, it's weather he can keep it up, that's the question. Either way, I look forward to a hopeful Fed/Tsonga quarter final which could be great.
Yeah, Del Potro doesn't really have a plan B when plan A isn't working. He was lucky not to be straight setted earlier. Usually Plan A is good enough for him to beat players like Chardy, but not today. But what i noticed was Del Po's poor movement (worse than usual) and his shots didn't have as much power as usual. Strange performance from Del Po, but a good performance from Chardy. I agree that one of the players inside the top 3 (4 if you include Nadal) would most likely have beaten Chardy, but lets not forget that Chardy does hold a straight sets victory over Murray last year, so it would at least be a test for them.

I've been really impressed with Jo. Some of you guys were quick to write him off as a potential darkhorse, but so far (i mean so far. He could turn shit the next game. It is Tsonga after all) he's been impressive. His BH looks a lot more solid than usual. I hope he can get to the Quarters then he's reach the round i expected him to.

I'm stoked for Kie vs Ferrer tonight. Should be a good, fun and close match. Hopefully injuries don't play a part and we can see who the better player is on the day. I've predicted Kei to win because i hope he does, and i have a good feeling for some reason. No scoreline except from a battering either way will suprise me. It'll be clsoe either way

I wouldn't peg Jo as a dark horse because I don't think he can win. However I do think he can cause an upset, and he's playing well, so who knows. I think he's someone who can get one big win at a slam but can't replicate it. He's got a new coach now though right? So I'm hoping that can change, inconsistency can be improved upon, so he could get that good. Then again he might not. I don't think he will this time around which is why he's not a dark horse for me. In this tournament there are no dark horses to win...because nobody outside the top three will win.

Agree, I think Kei vs. Ferrer could be great. Unfortunately I have to work at 6 in the morning so can't stay up to watch it but I do think Kei has a chance. I predict a Ferrer win in four or five, but I wouldn't be entirely shocked to see it the other way around.

Marking for: John Morrison, Randy Orton, CM Punk, Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes and Jack Swagger.

I had Del Po as a darkhorse, but looks what happened

I think you maybe right in saying there are no darkhorses now that Del Po has gone, because like yourself i don't think that any player outside Murray,Federer and Djokovic will win it. But if we are to put some players as darkhorses, then Ferrer,Berdych, and Tsonga will definately be the front runners to be classed as that. Berdych & Tsonga possibly more so than Ferrer because i don't feel that Ferrer is that much of a threat to the top 3 off clay, but i could be wrong.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

You aren't wrong.

I never consider Ferrer a dark horse in any slam, not even the French. He's a very solid player who works incredibly hard, but he does lack the natural talent the guys at the top have. I NEVER see him as a threat to the slams, sure he'll make the quarters and maybe even semi's on occasion but he won't even win one. I just don't think he has the ability to make it happen, whereas I feel like Del Potro has (obviously as he's already won one) and even Berdych or Tsonga have certain something about them that makes you think that they COULD cause the upset, I don't get that with Ferrer.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

The likes of Berdych, Tsonga, and Del Potro have more weapons to hurt the top players than Ferrer. Ferrer is far more consistent than them, but he doesn't have as high of a peak level. You know that if Tsonga, Berdych or Del Potro play really well then they have a major shot at beating the top players, whilst you can't say that about Ferrer.

Ferrer is more one dimensional. He's good at everything but never really has any real weapons if you know what I mean.

Serena won 2 slams,YEC and a gold medal. As well as a slam in doubles and a gold in doubles

Djokovic won a slam, reached another 2 slam finals, won the WTF, and finished as year end no.1
SERena should compete in mens competition

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Yeah Ferrer is one dimensional, you would expect him to beat players who are ranked below him but when he faces the top players, he doesn't really stand much of a chance while Tsonga, Del Potro and Berydch have something in them that can cause an upset, they have the ability to up their game and can put some brilliant performances. They have more weapons which can hurt the top players.
