RE: Week 32 - ATP Masters 1000 - Toronto, Canada - Hard


The match probably didn't give Andy anything other than a bit of match experience and some distance in his legs. Luckily, he'll be a top 8 seed in Cincinnati and has an opportunity to get the all-important duck-breaking win over a top player.

Considering that Cincy will be the last Master that he is defending before he has a fresh run at Shanghai and Paris, a top win is probably more important than points considering he's almost guaranteed a tough USO draw. A QF win over Nole and then a SF loss to anyone would be better than going deep with no big win, in terms of how lucrative the USO could actually be. At least in my opinion.

As a side note, he surely has to play at least Basel and Tokyo, if not another tournament in that period? It might be a shock to the system for a long-term Top 4 player but it would show more hunger than a fist pump when he wins a match. I've seen many question his hunger for the 'smaller' tournaments (ie. Masters and below) and I've not quite made up my mind yet.

Especially this year, I would have thought it would have been useful to have had some matchplay between Wimbledon and Toronto.

 Mark Petchey said the exact same thing on Sky !

You have to hand it to Tsonga, this week he beat Djokovic, Murray, Dimitrov and Fed.
Congratulations mate.

And maybe I feel a little less disappointed at Andy's loss seeing that result.

Tsonga only lost one set all week, to Andy in the QF, and he could / should have lost that match.

Tsonga, easily the best player in the world this week. Rarely do you see Federer literally bludgeoned as he was at times. I doubt anyone could deal with the level of power Tsonga produced today, not even himself!

Tsonga played incredibly all week. Hard luck on Fed though, he was shanking those groundstrokes for most of the match. Thankfully his net game was on form today to make it more competitive! So chuffed for Jo, he seems to be a great guy and always happy.
