Day 6 - Roland Garros

Earlier today before the Del Potro and Djokovic match Roger Federer beat No. 29 Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia in straight sets.  I didn't catch any of this match but I heard Federer just dominated.  He won 6-1, 6-4, 6-3 and is now in the 4th round for the 7th consecutive year. 

Then there was the Tsonga and Wawrinka match which I talked about earlier.  Good match just irritating if you wanted to see the Novak and Juan Martin match.  Wawrinka No. 14 did have an awesome comeback and I feel for Tsonga.  Jo-Wilfried Tsonga No. 17 was up 2 sets and was close to finishing out Stan in the 3rd when Wawrinka won in a tie break and from then on the wheels fell of for Jo-Wilfried.  The final was 4-6, 6-7 (3-7), 7-6 (7-5), 6-2, 6-3. 

In a recap No. 7 David Ferrer won, beating No. 31 Sergiy Stakhovsky of Ukraine 6-1, 6-1, 6-3.  No. 9 Gael Monfils of France dominated as well and for once only took 3 sets in a victory.  Albert Montanes of Spain defeated No. 12 Mikhail Youzhny of Russia 6-1, 7-6 (0), 6-1 and the man that faced Monfils in that thriller last year, Fabio Fognini of Italia defeated No. 30 Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain 4-6, 6-3, 6-3, 6-1.

And one quick note on the women's side No. 1 in the world Caroline Wozniacki lost to Daniela Hantuchova 6-1, 6-3.  Also, No. 8 seed Sam Stosur who was a finalist last year and favored by many to win this year, lost to Gisela Dulko.  There have been some crazy upsets on the woman's side this year.
