The flamboyant Frenchman is now on Andy's list in the fourth round of Miami. Tsonga hasn't looked great all this year, apart from a R4 appearance in the Australian Open, but he did manage to fight through a scrappy encounter with Baghdatis very well, after being two points from defeat. Tsonga is never an easy prospect as he is a former Top 10 player, and even now is ranked just outside at No. 11. This has all the makings of a blockbuster fourth round match.

The head to head of this match up is fairly one sided in the Scot's favour, 8-1. Tsonga last beating Murray in 2008. But, the head to head is not a good indicator of how good Tsonga can play against Murray, troubling him numerous times in the past, including their last meeting at Queens last year which went to three sets for Murray.

watched first 2 sets of JWT's match today and really didn't think he deserved to win.  Don't know what has happened to him but he seems to have lost his way recently. It's a shame as I like him very much.  But very happy for him to remain on the missing persons list for Tuesday (which I don't think I'll be able to watch).  Cmon Andy  cmon yeah

Well there's an interesting H2H (except for the boring pictures - give Bev a chance).

Does Tsonga play left-handed or right-handed I wonder?

Strange not to know - there is only a choice of two.    Interesting, he's 7 kg heavier than Andy and 1" shorter.   He's a good mover for someone so heavily built.  I usually like Jo but not on Tuesday.

Gangsta's right.  I'm sure he has no objection to Bev putting up her magnificent H2Hs, and as Bev is still willing to do them, maybe we should let her go back to doing so?  Even if they don't come right at the start of the thread members will still look for them.  I know I do.  These awful mug-shots are more befitting to a police station than tennis websites anyway.

Bakeray in the poll is reference to the breadsticks and bagels he's given his opponents already by the way.
