Gilles Simon – Juan Martin Del Potro
These 2 have met each other 4 times. On each occasion there has been a tie break. In 3 of these matches there’s even been 2 tie breaks which means that in a total of 15 sets played they’ve fought out 7 tie breaks. Consider that and take a look again at this massive price.
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga – Feliciano Lopez
These 2 have played each other 3 times and on each occasion there has been a tie break.
Maria Kirilenko – Julia Goerges
Goerges played a really fine match against Radwanska in round 1, did so again against Lepchenko, so why go against her in this 3rd round? Because she often has trouble maintaining consistency in the biggest tournament, while she’s up against an opponent here who enjoyed some real success lately during Wimbledon. Kirilenko reached the quarterfinals, and has also looked really well so far here. On top of that she has a 2-0 lead over Goerges in their h2h, both wins came last year without dropping a set.
