The Czeck guy made some upsets against top seeds and he is looking like a threat now. Though he is reliable on his serve, he has very bad record of his mental personality. ( where he refused to have hand shake with Almagro in Aus Open 2012). He has the ability and he is wasting it seems.
The big Argentine, Del Potro won back to back titles in last few weeks and looking more confident. It is very bad time when he was suffered with some injuries when his play was at good state. And now he came back and ready to give good tennis here. This year, he defeated Federer in Basel indoors, and Djokovic in Olympics.
Tsonga is the last person in the Top 8. But the person out there is very stubborn, strong and he was reached Finals last year where he lost to Federer. And now he is ready to repeat the same ( getting into finals ). His strong and energetic shots are plus points for him.
Though he is not in Top 8, as Nadal is absent, Tipservic got into the WTF. He is the second Serbian (first one is Djokovic) in this tourney. Last year also he came in the middle as someone dropped in the g
roup matches. And he failed to make it to semis. This time he is ready to give his best tennis.
This is the event which will be held after the two straight weeks of tennis, this is an hectic schedule for the players. For rest , Federer skipped Paris masters. And interstingly all the remaining players came out of the tournment with sudden losses against unseeded players. Only Ferrer stayed there and won his first ATP 1000 title.
It is an awkward moment for the players to say that they got the rest for preparing for London WTF when they losted to unseeded players who gave best tennis on that day.
