    gonna watch this tonight, i hope it's a great match.

    personally i'm barracking for Tsonga, he seems a pretty cool guy.

    I was a bit dissapointed with Federer losing the other night, however i think it will probably make this final a better competition with the playing styles that Djokovich and Tsonga have.

    Tsonga will most likely win. His ability to accelerate any flat shot is incredible, and all the amazing shots he did (eg. the final point of the first set, the topspin lob on the stretch)

    Tsonga is the favourite for me. Excerpt BBC commentary: "Djokovic can't seem to believ the accuracy and speed of the shots coming at him..."

    Now Tsonga's fallen to pieces... maybe he can pull back together.

    I watched the fist and last sets, and I was pretty upset that Tsonga lost :\ I wanted him to win just because Djokovich has just a bit too much over confidence.

    God damn Djokovich, he had the skills the whole time to win it, but he was freaking out in the first set.

    I had money on Djokovich to win 3 sets to one, and I thought he was going to pull it off early, but the big serves of Tsonga put him off...
