The two have met 12 times, with Rafal leading their H2H series 8-4. Tsonga won their only grass-court matchup at the 2011 Queen’s Club.

Rafa’s coach Francisco Roig on the match:

Rafa and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga know each other well. Tsonga possesses a strong serve and powerful groundstrokes. He plays at another level when the stakes and emotions are high, and he’s shown his grass-court prowess in the past. Rafa will need to perform at his best again if he’s to get past Tsonga and into the fourth round. Everything happens so fast on grass and if you let your foot off the pedal for a moment or lose focus, things can spiral out of control very quickly. From start to finish, Rafa must be 100 per cent in control and fully attentive. That’s easy for me to say, of course, but if anyone can perform in that manner for the entirety of a match, it’s Rafa.

GOOD LUCK & VAMOS RAFA!

  5. Rafa’s been staying on course… raising his level on grass one match at a time … playing with focus
    and precision … He’s in all business mode and I’m loving it!!
    Jo Willie is a nice guy but he’s not happy he has Rafa tomorrow and rightfully so…

    Rafa will raise the level another notch and send Tsonga home…

    Keep chopping wood Rafael….one match at a time!!

  7. Shees, Compared to DjokoRoof draw Rafa is insanely difficult. Probably Roger would be already out if the Wimby strange men respected ATP seeds.

    Vamos Rafa! You can beat ’em all… roof included!

    • Rafa is playing well which means he is serving big and keeping his unforced errors to a minimum . I see momentum is with Rafa and Tsonga is a tough but managable opponent . Rafa will win this match unless Tsonga plays over his head ! Vamos Rafa !
