Congratulations to stronger looking Jo-Wilfried Tsonga !

0 ( +3 / -3 )

Great picture. I'm glad that despite losing after receiving many easy draws Nishikori can keep his chin up and give the victor a good hand shake (or hand grab). It does indeed sound like this was a tough match. Congrats to both, and good luck to Tsonga -- next match is going to be even tougher, likely!

-2 ( +5 / -7 )

Tsonga got shaky in the third and fourth sets but put it back together in the fifth.

Who won? the blurb doesn't make mention. Was this a doubles match and they both won?

2 ( +6 / -4 )

Please read the caption.
