Murray-TsongaWe are barely in the fourth round of the 2014 US open, and the bracket gives us a huge matchup between French Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Scottish Andy Murray, this Monday September 1st, at the Arthur Ashe Stadium, in the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga arrives at this stage after beating Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta in three sets (6-4, 6-4, 6-4), and with the motivation that his opponent has struggled with injuries and his playing form in the tournament.

“The locker room is maybe a bit less afraid of Andy because he’s losing a few more matches than in the past. But I don’t know any player who once on court is going to be super confident against Andy,” said Tsonga about his opponent.

“He’s different than in the past maybe because I feel he’s not serving as strong as he used to, nor maybe hitting as strong as he used to. And during matches he’s showing more when he seems in pain with his back or hip region, I’m not sure. You can see it on some moves, too.”

Andy Murray beat Russian Andrey Kuznetsov in the third round with a 6-1, 7-5, 4-6 and 6-2 result.  Murray hasn’t been the same since he won Wimbledon in 2013, and you can see it on his game.

Murray leads the series 9-2 over Tsonga and is listed -150 to win this game in the US Open money line while the Frech is +120 to pull the upset.
