And Tsonga wins 25-23. I think the 3rd set took over 3 hours.
Congrats to Jo.. sorry for Milos. He saved 3 MP's in all.

Longest match in Olympic tennis history. In matches like this, it's a shame that someone has to lose - Milos especially did so well as he was serving to stay in the match so many times. Pleased for Jo though, he had quite a few chances in that set that he didn't take. I think both of them need to work on their return game though!

Yep, sad when someone has to lose a match like that. But that's the way it goes.

Little minx had better not start flirting with Andy again like she did in the Hopman Cup - not that Andy seemed to mind, but Kim might be watching ... Very Happy

Missed that match.  Feel sorry for Milos though.  Must be really tough to lose like that.  Still, Milos's time might come in 2016 when he's had more experience and improved his game.

I bet nole enjoyed that humdinger of a match.  Effectively removed the main obstacle in his path to sfs.

Fed plays Istomin (on ct 1) and plays in the doubles as well today.

Djoko plays Hewitt - that could be an interesting match.

Hewitt is not the man he was and Nole is twice the man he was. Rather feel this'll be a rout.

I like this journalist's live tweets of the third set of the Tsonga/Raonic match- he starts off very positive but becomes more and more disillusioned as the match progresses!

Well I too got impatient because Tsonga had loads of chances but just couldn't finish it off. He didn't seem to twig, or lacks the game to implement, that Raonic just cannot move forwards, when he is lured to the net all right on his terms,and execute a shot. I didn't think it was a gr8 match at all. Serving contests are a bore for me.

I kept thinking during the match how if Andy or Nole were playing it would've been over so much sooner. Tsonga and Raonic, great as they are at serving, just don't have an effective return game.

Federer held by rain delay Whistle is it wrong to be a bit smug that he's having to face that instead of being on CC?

No, I would say it isn't wrong, never, ever.

About time Smugfed had to deal with the same things others have to cope with.

The curse of CC roof strikes again.
They had it closed for Serena's match.. then opened it for Leyton/Nole.
2 games in and it's p*ssing rain again.  Rolling Eyes
