The 2008 champion was pushed into the final set-tiebreaker after he failed to serve the match. Julien was able to convert only three of the total 11 break point chances against Tsonga, who stroke 15 aces in total – which refers 5 in each set.

Tsonga said that in the third set he was completely in a different state of mind and he was having some intuitions that worked out very well for him. He also added that those intuitions worked out well for him but playing against Julien was not that easy as he had to serve pretty hard in order to win the match.
