Tsonga already up a break in the first 4-1. I really can't believe this isn't televised at all. Terrible decision.

Surprised Baghdatis won the first against Gasquet.

We have it on CTV in Canada (well I'm watching at ctvolympics.ca). So you might be able to find a feed somewhere.

Raonic misses two break chances.

First set to Tsonga, 6-3.

Raonic to serve first in second.

Raonic breaks for 2-0. He was in most of Tsonga's service games in the first; nice that he finally broke.

Yeah, I thought he played fairly well after being broken in the first. Great way to start the second.

Onto a third set. Raonic just needs to keep doing what he is doing.

Seems likely that one break will decide this again. Whoever avoids playing a loose game will probably win. Still like Tsonga.

It will start well before then unless Nieminen miraculously turns this match around.

Well, at least Nieminen gave a fight in the end.

Shark was never winning this. He hasn't been good recently, and without a great draw he probably wouldn't have even made the second round.

Back on the court and Raonic holds for 2-2.

Nole running over Roddick. Pretty close at the beginning but Nole won seven games in a row from 2-2 in the first. Great defensive play as always, and Roddick has looked slow and been unable to get even moderately difficult balls back in play.

6-2, 6-1 in 54 minutes.

Raonic has held five of six games at love this set. Tsonga is too poor of a returner to challenge Milos' serve unless he tightens up and his first serve percentage drops. No tiebreak worries me a bit. This match could go on for a while.

Lisicki over Shvedova in three.

Looks like it'll be 8-7 unless Milos picks it up here..

Raonic's backhand is looking weak today.

How is that crying baby still there?

Woohoo Lisicki, into the 3rd round Another tough victory for her, maybe the German football team should get some advice off her on what it means to play for your country

Looking at an otherwise great statline for Milos, the one thing that stands out is that he's 1/7 on break points. Gotta think he'll be rueing that more and more as the match goes on.

Something has to give here.

Hopefully Milos can take this one from Tsonga and then win his serve.
