    Points won directly behind the serve:
    24 % Verdasco – 32 of 133
    24 % Tsonga – 27 of 110

    The first meeting between these two: the 2008 Aussie Open runner-up Tsonga [7] and a revelation of the 2009 edition – Verdasco [15]. The match was played on Rod Laver Arena indoors, and after the first two sets an epic five-setter could be anticipated, but the Frenchman, who hadn’t faced a break point for the first hour and forty-two minutes, wilted in the last two sets. The Spaniard quickly obtained a *4:0 and 2:0* in those sets and finished the match with his most convincing hold, on match point stamped by a powerful ace.
