Tsonga is the potion to beat Nadal

Tsonga put an end to the tortuous path of Rafa Nadal in Masters Cup after beating Spanish London, 7-6, 4-6, 6-3 in Hall 02. In this way, the French player will become the third player to dispute the seminal Gallic tournament after Grosjean in 2001 and Gilles Simon in 2008.

After a match against Fish suffered a painful loss to Federer and a complicated encounter with Tsonga, the world number two leaves a competition full of troubles to focus on the upcoming Davis Cup final that will play Spain and Argentina.

With some physical problems and with the intention of forgetting as far as possible the disappointment with the 'Basel Expresso' stood Nadal Tsonga. The Spaniard showed his tennis in bursts and was unable to beat a player who was fed a high percentage of first serves and a great success in the network increases.

From the first minutes we saw that Nadal was not what we are accustomed. His service in all aspects concerned. First by its low success in the first serves and second for the second service was poor all kinds of aid to Tsonga in the rest.

Despite this, the first race was not decided until the tie break, where Nadal showed once again the symptoms that had accompanied him and ended up giving in to an aggressive Tsonga. A good first service and a network attack was enough for the Frenchman is set to score.

With the score lopsided at times you could see the courage and dedication of world number two. With or without physical problems, the Balearic tennis player always leaves everything on the track and managed to level the match again. Its impossible and racing shots from side to side of the track is mixed with unforced errors Tsonga, who was out of the game for a few minutes and paid for seeing danger victory.

All I got in the second set as the shooting shattered in the last set. His service was again the innocent from the beginning and Tsonga benefited from the rest. At one point it seemed that neither wanted to win, as the Frenchman committed three double faults while serving to win the match and Nadal, after getting a break, he could not consolidate his serve to lose the last game white party.

On Friday the French know their opponents in the semifinals, where they could face to face with another Spanish if Ferrer wins against Berdych or Djokovich or Czech as the results are given.

What is certain is that Nadal will join in the coming days the Spanish Davis Cup team to fight for a new bowl after taking a few days well deserved days off.
