    Raonic advances, Tsonga upset Fifteenth seed Milos Raonic is through to the third round after upending France’s Paul-Henri Mathieu in straight sets. Fifth seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is out of the tournament, having fallen to Slovakia’s Martin Klizan in four sets.

    Martin Klizan def. (5) Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-4, 1-6, 6-1, 6-3

    World No. 52 Martin Klizan advanced to the third round after upsetting fifth seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on Thursday. The 23-year-old converted seven of 19 break points en route to a 6-4, 1-6, 6-1, 6-3 victory in two hours and 12 minutes.

    "I was coming to the match to play a very solid game," said Klizan. "I wanted to play really good tennis to play with the top star player. I played very, very well today. I was concentrating each point and I won; I'm very happy that I did."

    "Today I was not in good shape," said Tsonga. "I didn't play good tennis. It seemed like I couldn't hit the ball enough hard to put my opponent out of position. I don't really know why it was like this today, but sometimes it's happen with me."

    Klizan is slated to face 32nd seed Jeremy Chardy for a place in the round of 16.

Blake was amazing. I'm afraid this is where the road ends for Milos.

Agree with you Ricky. Blake was just awesome in his match against Granollers today. Blake v Raonic- another mouthwatering clash to look for.

This match will be won (or lost) on Milos' racquet. Depends on what happens between his ears. If he mentally checks out or chokes in critical moments, Blake could take advantage but Blake will need Raonic to beat himself.

@ 3:29PM Is this a disgruntled Fedtroll trying to sabotage TT?

No, fed trolls don't make as much sense. The post above is too objective.

Nah, it's a Nadal fan who's mad that you guys aren't talking about just HIM. They speak just like Nadal making no sense.

@tomnjerry, in the past, I made it a point to refrain from getting into the dirt and giving tit for tat to nadal, murray and djoker, but since the nastiness on the roddick thread, I decided that it's a waste of time coz I'm damned if I do and damned if I don't. Hence, I'm going to follow the crowd and adhere to 'when in Rome do as the romans do'. Give them a dose of their own medicine whenever they attack Fed.

Keep the #tags coming, Conspirator! They're the BEST - I love it!! Right to the point.
