Haha Tsonga comes back from 2 sets down to win in 5.

For some reason I just knew he wouldn't lose, loaded up on him in play @ $3. Cheers Tsonga!

I had him last leg of a multi. Got nervous in the third when he couldn't break but as soon as he did it was game on

Rafa Nadal is OUT of the tournament due to a wrist injury. According to Nadal at his press conference if he keeps playing he would have snapped a tendon in his wrist if he kept playing.

Had played his first 2 games with heavy amount of anesthetic injected in the wrist.

Geez, at the start of the French I picked Andy as my Winner.

After two "five setters", I thought that was going to be an awful pick.  :P

He still has an unbelievably hard road to the Final, Isner, Kei, but Rafa has certainly surprised many. There were virtually no rumors about any injuries in his wrist before RG.

Nadal was arguably the most impressive of the top players in the first 2 rounds.

Murray back to some form with a straight sets win over Karlovic and shouldn't have too many problems against Isner.

Kei struggled against Verdasco but as we know Verdasco's best tennis is pretty good so the fact Kei won is only a positive for me.

Stan played very well in his last 2 games and for me is firming as the pick of the bottom half of the draw to make the final.

Raonic also is in the bottom half of the draw and hasn't dropped a set. Plays against Ramos-Vilonas next and should be winning that one comfortably.

Novak a moral IMO to make the final. No one IMO in the top half of the draw can beat Novak unless he plays well below his best.

Good to see Sam Stosur into the 4th round with a win over last year's runner up Lucie Safarova. She has a tougher match against the 2014 runner-up Simona Halep in the 4th round.

No doubt here that we have the two future "Slam Champs" in Zverev and Thiem right now.

Zverev took the first 7-6, but I've been watching for the half 40 minutes and am yet to see a point without entertainment.

The other big's have struggled and he has really stood out, very impressed.

He had 3 wins against rubbish players and is now losing to another rubbish player. I do not agree that he has been impressive before today.

What happen to Tsonga?

Injured his adductor, took an injury time out at 5-2 up in the first set but couldn't continue. Commentators seemed to think it might have been something he brought into the tournament.

Honestly Gulbis looked awfully inconsistent. Tsonga just had to keep hitting it back in play!
