Here Today, Gone Tomorrow ... Tsonga Out

I'm not quite sure what to think about this latest ousting of Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Croatian Ivan Ljubicic can be hell to pay - and play - as we have seen in the past. However, I watched this Mutua Madrilena Madrid Open match this morning and it wasn't all Ljubicic.

The Croatian had a little bit of help beating Tsonga - from Tsonga. Nothing overt, Tsonga just doesn't seem to have that zing in his game right now. He's making the effort, but that little something extra that he was previously bringing to the court seens to be missing.

Laying claim to the first big upset, Ljubicic defeated ninth-seed Tsonga 6-4, 7-5.
