Tsonga and Cilic Win

A Quick Post 

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga improves his chances of playing the Year End Championships/Masters Cup/ATP World Championships/Masters (could they stick with one name?).  He defeated Juan Martin del Potro 6-7, 6-3, 6-4 in Vienna.  I was pulling for Delpo, but Tsonga has had a really strong year since his Queen’s Club runner-up finish.  Delpo has shown life in 2011, but I think he can use the (short) off-season to make a push to return to his 2009 form.

Marin Cilic kept Janko Tipsarevic from sweeping Russia by winning St. Petersburg 6-3, 3-6, 6-2.  Tipsy has made a push to improve his rankings, but this setback likely turns his move into the top 10 into a 2012 project.  Still, both players have shown life in the late summer and early autumn seasons.  Beyond all of that a Croatian-Serbian match-up has some intrigue.
